In Perspective

The entire "jobs" bill that Sen. Collins has decided not to try to block clocks in at less than two percent of the stimulus bill.

It's $15 billion cost is also a mere fraction of what Collins and allies stripped from the Recovery Act, at a time when every additional dollar of stimulus was sorely needed.

So let's be frank: Her support is little more than a token gesture.

This isn't a centrism; it's a feint toward centrism. Though it's almost certain that the junior senator and her friends in the Maine media will pretend otherwise.
