Jean Hay Bright on Principles & Values

 


Snowe talks moderate, but votes right-wing Republican

Because Olympia Snowe is a Republican, she counts toward the 55-seat Republican majority in the 100-seat US Senate. And that headcount is what codifies a Republican leadership, and what allows for the right-wing Republican agenda to move forward. (Snowe, you should know, cast her votes for that right-wing leadership.)

A swing of six seats nationally from Republican to Democrat in the 2006 election would tip that balance and put Democrats back in control of the national agenda. Maine should provide one of those crucial Democratic seats.

Despite Olympia Snowe's verbal assurances of her moderation, when it comes time to cast her vote, she's on board with the Bush administration on critical issues -- issues that are doing great damage to this country and to our national prestige and security around the world. If you watch her voting patterns, you will see that Olympia Snowe votes the right way when it doesn't count, and the wrong way when it does.

Maine and the nation deserve better.
