“I truly do not understand the skepticism about this request,” Snowe said. “This is about doing our job. If it takes two more weeks, it takes two more weeks. We’re talking about trillions of dollars in the final analysis.”
“Is there something happening in two weeks that we cannot wait?” she continued. “Is it the Columbus Day recess? What is it? Because I don’t get it.”
If Senator Snowe can figure that out, why can't the rest? What's the urgency? Even though Senator Snowe votes with the liberals on many occasions, health care is one of her pet projects. On this, she is serious as a heart attack. And she does NOT like having a public option or having any reforms cost MORE money.
