Snowe Risks Possible Ranking Membership With Health Care BillWow! Way to get your panties in a bunch, dudes. Take a lesson from the Democrats, why don't you? We even let Lieberman play with us and he's stabbed us in the back so many times we look like Swiss Cheese. And its working! We have a majority and we get everything we want...?
The Hill reports that Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) is risking a chance at becoming the ranking Republican on the Senate Commerce Committee, which is opening up due to the resignation of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), if she were to back the Democrats on health care. "A vote for healthcare would be something that would weigh on our minds when it came time to vote," said an unnamed Republican on the committee.
