Collins Swipes At Schumer’s ‘Bizarre’ Remark That Chasing Her Vote In 2009 Was A ‘Mistake’

“He voted for the same package that I did.”

Disingenuous, rather than an outright lie.

That’s how you know she’s a “moderate” Republican.

Nothing “bizarre” about it.

Heh, heh, heh. The tease isn’t working anymore, Senator Collins! Now, if you want to look moderate, you’ll actually have to VOTE moderate. Or just go Full Trump Minion, like the real Republicans.

Is she really this dense or is it just feigned for the cameras?

‘Historic term?’ You mean the one you PROMISED the people of Maine you would not run for when you were first elected?

Pro tip to Collins: There is only so long that you can play Lucy before everybody catches on.

I’m “concerned” that Susan Collins is “concerned.” Actually, I just lied! Confessing one is “concerned” without action is a cowards’ sentiment.

Collins’ win in ME was, for me, the most disappointing win for the GOP. Especially after the Kavanaugh vote in 2018.

What were they thinking? Especially being from the same Party as Donald Fucking Trump

“reelected me to a historic term,” she said.”

Exactly. I’m old, she is ancient and needed to go lay down a long time ago. A snippy old bat is what she’s turning into.

What “package” is she referring to. She (and her fellow Mainer, Snowe) certainly did not vote to approve the PPACA:

It’s harder to undo legislation (now that Pelosi has the House and Joe is POTUS)…so I say, let’s get a plethora of things the American People need, ESPECIALLY VOTING RIGHTS AND INFRASRUCTURE and make the times her fucking opinion is asked for less of a factor
