Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican, said there may be a way around [a future Democratic] filibuster [of an Affordable Care Act repeal] through a parliamentary maneuver she was told about just before the recess for the Fourth of July holiday. She said there is an argument that it will only take a simple majority for repeal, but she said that is not certain.Stay tuned, indeed.
"Stay tuned," she said.
I haven't looked into Collins' claim, but I'm pretty sure the parliamentary maneuver she's talking about is the one stipulating that the filibuster is a sacred check on authoritarian overreach when invoked by Republicans and an undemocratic abomination when used by Democrats.
I'm kidding. Barely.
More seriously, the article underscores the fact that Maine press only breaks important news about Sen. Collins when it does so inadvertently.
