Aside from the Turtle, if there’s someone that I want gone in 2020, it’s that phony azz Susan Collins from Maine. She pretends that she’s a moderate, when she has done nothing but vote in lockstep with the GOP.
Every once in awhile, she does something meaningless to push the fallacy of her being a ‘moderate’.
Collins eyes second letter to AG Barr on fate of health care law

Sen. Susan Collins wants Attorney General Bill Barr to reverse the Justice Department’s aggressive move, seeking to obliterate the Affordable Care Act.
In a letter to Barr on Monday, the Maine Republican argues that if the Trump administration wants to change the health care law, it should come to Congress and ask. Otherwise, Barr’s department should be defending the law from a lawsuit seeking to cripple it, she says.
“Rather than seeking to have the courts invalidate the ACA, the proper route for the administration to pursue would be to propose changes to the ACA or to once again seek its repeal. The administration should not attempt to use the courts to bypass Congress,” Collins wrote to Barr, whom she supported in his confirmation vote in February.
A letter? Really?
But, let’s put the votes, that actually matter in this situation, from Little Susie in context.
Collins, who’s up for re-election next year, is in an awkward spot. The Republican senator voted against the Affordable Care Act; she voted for the tax legislation that’s imperiled the ACA; she voted to confirm Bill Barr as attorney general; and though we don’t yet know how the case will play out in the courts, it’s entirely possible she also voted to confirm some of the federal judges who may yet side the with the Trump administration against the health care law.
So, see, when the ACA came up originally, she couldn’t be bothered to vote for it.
The GOP Tax Scam that took aim at the ACA – she was in in.
Barr- who folks like me knew was bad news – she voted for him.
All those Federalist Society Judges, who are not only anti-ACA and Abortion – she has voted in lockstep for them.
Lest we forget her vote for the sexual assaulter that was just put on the Supreme Court…
Oh no, Little Susie. You’re eyeballs deep in responsibility for the peril that the ACA is in.
We need to find a good Democrat to get rid of this horrid woman. Ted Cruz is more honest than her – he doesn’t pretend to be anything other than who he is…while all she is in dripping in a cloak of phoniness.
