Penny Wise

Sen. Susan Collins, who helped push through $2 trillion in deficit-generating tax cuts during the Bush administration, voted today to kill an unemployment benefits package that would have added $33 billion to the deficit--or about 1.7% of $2 trillion--on the grounds that the bill was "too expensive."

Letting people keep there own money is not the same as government spending - one could only think they are on par if the assumption is made that all wealth belongs to Uncle Sam. It's about time the folks in DC stop running up the credit card balance. Kudos to Collins on this one

Why should she and Olympia care? They *have* jobs...

Oh, well. Maine voted for her, including a big chunk of those who are now without any visible means of support because of her.
