Quote of the Day

Sen. Collins:

"Too much of our tax policy is directed at very large companies," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. "For example, there are needless tax subsides for the oil industry."
Well said.

You could be forgiven for concluding that Collins opposed the oil subsidy-laden Energy Policy Act of 2005 which, according to the Sierra Club, "harm[ed] public health, the environment and consumers."

But Collins was for it. (Fellow New Englander Sen. John Sununu (R-NH) and Collins pal Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) both voted against it.)
