Sen. Susan Collins: expect more intervention in the economy; no more bailouts, unless...

Sen. Susan Collins was back in Maine earlier today (link)

[She] doesn't consider the stimulus plan to be a perfect one, but she felt it was much more important to find a compromise and get money out to people quickly. She also acknowledged that her vote has not made her popular within her own party, but she said, that doesn't bother her.

"My obligation is to the people of Maine," Sen. Collins said. "And they didn't send me to Washington to sit on the sidelines. They want me to try to solve problems, and they want me to work in a bipartisan way."

Collins said the stimulus plan will not work overnight and that it is just the beginning of government intervention in the economy. But she said she won't vote for another bailout of the financial industry unless the money goes directly into lending.

And, the financial industry can take that to the bank.


"...the financial industry can take that to the bank" just like the Republican party, the people of Maine and the people of the United States could take it to the bank that, as a Republican, she would vote for those principles that would be fiscally responsible and not put the next seven generations into another trillion dollars of debt. I wish all I had to do to heal myself financially was to spend about 8% of my yearly gross without regard to my existing financial obligations...

that means many more bailouts in your future if you have a future, one of obama boys called all white people cowers cringing in fear of obama? see savage nation and listen to what this little government rat said! but white are cowers not to fight back against this evil take over and lawless government.

Actually, no one could possibly be as uneducated as Fred seems to be and still be computer literate enough to find his way to any blog. Therefore, it is my conclusion that Fred is a lib deliberately disguising himself as an ignorant oaf so HufPo, DK and the entire moonbat left can point to blogs like this and say "See how ignorant and bigoted these folks are?"! That's the only logical explanation. I haven't met anyone since I was a kid that is as ignorant of humanity as this guy would like us to believe.
