Snowe Votes for Health Care

President Obama has a Republican feather to wear in his cap: Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine has voted for the health-care bill before the Senate Finance Committee, which passed on Tuesday 14-9. Snowe was the only Republican to vote for the measure. “The majority has the votes,” she said. “It has the votes in the House, it has the votes in the Senate.” Snowe said that her vote for the committee’s bill does not mean she will vote for the final product when the entire Senate votes.
