Olympia Snowe: “When History Calls, History Calls”
Olympia Snowe made this statement upon being the only Republican on the Senate Finance Committee to vote for health care reform, enabling it to pass committee. But Snow is still hedging her bets.
“When history calls, history calls,” Snowe said at the committee hearing, but she reiterated her opposition to a government-run insurance option and cautioned that she does not want the bill to get any more expensive as the process moves forward.
“My vote today is my vote today. It doesn’t forecast what my vote will be tomorrow,” Snowe said.
Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon put it in perspective.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., had also said he was concerned that the bill doesn’t provide affordable coverage and choice to all Americans.
“We clearly have more to do,” Wyden said, but he voted yes to the bill.Click here for reuse options!
