Short Memories

As Gerald at Dirigo Blue notes, Sen. Collins continues to block the 9/11 health bill.

Literally days after voting for $900 billion in red ink-generating tax cuts skewed to the rich, Collins objects to the bill because--wait for it--the $7 billion package isn't paid for.

Got that? Huge tax cuts for the rich? No problem.

But health care for the first responders who got sick from toxic dust spewing out of burning buildings on 9/11? A bill that will grow the deficit less than one percent of what the tax cuts cost? Not so fast.

Sick and twisted. But no longer surprising.
