Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe Join Mitch McConnell in Legal Challenge of Health Care Bill
Don’t you miss those oh-so-inspiring, bipartisany days of last January, when Republicans and Democrats came together to solve the health care crisis?
Centrist Democratic senators have circumvented party leadership to approach Maine GOP Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins about reviving healthcare talks. [...]
Lieberman predicted Tuesday that White House officials would soon contact Snowe, Collins and other Republicans.
“I have always felt that the best way to adopt a major reform like healthcare reform is bipartisan,” Lieberman told reporters.
Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are co-signing an amicus, or friend of the court, brief to be submitted to the federal court in Florida that will hear a constitutional challenge of the federal health care reform law.
The brief was initiated by U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and boasts signatures of 30 Senate Republicans. The lawsuit was brought by the attorneys general for several states and the National Federation of Independent Businesses, a small-business trade organization.
I blame Nancy Pelosi.
