Collins is first GOP senator to back bill requiring campaigns report foreign assistance offers to FBI

ㅤô¿ô …This isn’t a bad idea as long as the law applies to EVERYONE. The very fact that Republicans have introduced the bill suggests that the Dems benefit from foreign assistance more than the GOP. Not surprising since most of the Dems are communists.

GOP senator: 'I'm not sure that the President fully understands what it's like to live paycheck to paycheck'

ㅤô¿ô …Apparently Collins doesn’t understand. Because of the keep-up-with-the-jone’s attitude in the USA and high cost of college, practically the entire middle class lives pay check to pay check. Many live in houses they really can’t afford. Many carry significant credit card debt. Many allow their children to be freeloaders.

Susan Collins: Leftists Are Trying To Bribe Me To Vote Against Kavanaugh

ㅤ"Kendra Arnold, executive director of The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), stated of the online crowdfunding campaign targeting Collins that has reputedly raised over $1.2 million, ‘I think this is one of those things where it’s very obvious that outside influence is being used in an attempt to corrupt a member of Congress. We expect them to act on merit and it’s pretty clear no matter where you lean politically that this is absolutely an act of bribery and corruption.’"

Susan Collins: Judge Brett Kavanaugh said abortion was settled law

ㅤ"The Maine Republican met with the President’s nominee Tuesday for roughly two hours, saying the meeting was ‘excellent.’
ㅤAfter the meeting, she told reporters she asked him about Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark case legalizing abortion.
ㅤ’He said that he agreed with what Justice Roberts said at his nomination hearing, in which he said it was settled law. We had a very good, thorough discussion,’ Ms. Collins said.’"

Democrat Leaders Have Some Bad News For Desperate Dems About Blocking Kavanaugh


ㅤ"The reality, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters this week, is that if all the Republicans vote to affirm him, as seems increasingly likely, there’s simply not much Democrats can do about it, The Hill reports. All those folks desperately calling for their political leaders to do something, Sen. Dick Durbin suggested, don’t understand how the Senate operates.
ㅤ’There is no way we can prevent the Senate from meeting,’ Schumer said in response to a question about procedural methods for blocking the confirmation hearing. ‘There’s been some discussion about that, but it just wouldn’t happen.’
ㅤDurbin was more blunt. ‘Some of the things that have been in blogs and suggested do not even understand the basics of the Senate,’ the second-ranking Democratic Senator told reporters. ‘Some of the people who have come up to me at parades and said, ‘Shut ’em down, do this, do that,’ it reflects a limited understanding of how the Senate operates.’
ㅤWith Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins signaling that they’re likely to support Kavanaugh, the Democrats’ hopes of blocking Trump’s second Supreme Court nomination are looking grim.’"ㅤ

Senate rejects centrist immigration bill after Trump veto threat

Pictured: Lindsey Graham

ㅤ”The centrist deal, backed by Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and other Republicans, represented perhaps the best chance to advance legislation in the Senate, but was opposed by Trump and his allies in part because it did not cover all four immigration ‘pillars’ he had demanded.”

Collins optimistic Congress will reach immigration deal

Collins on Russia Probe: I Have Yet to See ‘Definitive Evidence of Collusion’

Pictured: Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)

ㅤô¿ô …I believe Collin’s opinion is an indicator that Trump may be impeached, but not removed from office. Currently the Dems’ chances of retaking the House in 2018 look pretty good. But there remains slim chance the Dems will retake the Senate.

Collins ‘disappointed’ in Trump’s actions on health care ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at The Hill, notes at the DC Drain, image from thehill(.com).

ㅤI think McCain, Flake, Corker, Rand Paul and the Freedom Caucus are all pleased with the President’s decision to end the subsidies. Apparently Collins is the only Republican senator who is “disappointed.” Collins should be booted out of the GOP.

Sen. Susan Collins Will Not Run for Governor of Maine ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at Breitbart, notes at the DC Drain, image from newyorker(.com).

ㅤ”Collins revealed her decision to not run for Maine governor at a local Chamber of Commerce event, where she touted her influence in the Senate.”
ㅤInfluence indeed. Collins had three opportunities to repeal and replace. In voting against the bills, she apparently didn’t take Trump seriously about letting Obamacare die with no replacement. And that is what is going to happen. Hindsight says Collins is a turd.

Collins to announce decision on Maine governor bid Friday ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at The Hill, notes at the DC Drain, image from thehill(.com).

ㅤ”Collins isn’t up for reelection to the Senate until 2020. If she ran for governor and won, she’d have to resign from her Senate seat, allowing Gov. Paul LePage (R) to appoint a replacement.”

ㅤGrandstanding drama queen.
