#2 Senator Snowe, it is time to go!

Senator Olympia Snowe is representing Maine as a Republican.  She has been in office each year since 1994.  The Senator is up for re-election in 2012.

The country was founded on the basis of less government and unalienable rights of the individual to pursue, life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  This is supported by less government “controls”, where the people succeed and fail primarily by their own ambitions and efforts.  Let’s take a look at some of the ways Senator Snowe has translated our country’s foundation into her voting practices.

 HR 4104  Senator Snow voted yes;  This was passed by the Senate
  H Amdt 728: Federal Health Plan Contraceptive Coverage Amendment
  H Amdt 723: Increase FEC Funding

Issues: Abortion Issues, Budget, Spending and Taxes
Date: 09/03/1998

In this there was the creation of a National Drug Control Office which took control over drug policies and diminished some of the individual rights of the state to mandate laws and controls that were appropriate for specific state issues.  Today, this has grown to a massive organization that is setting drug policies, allocating sizeable grant funds, and making recommendation on both thing domestically and internationally.  Yes, we need drug policies, but why do we think it takes a massive “overhead” organization rather than the states to mandate these actions?  At most, why couldn’t there be a policy advisor that makes recommendations and observations?

She has consistently voted to support excessive spending (such as the Stimulus bill) and enlarging the government role in people’s lives.  If you think this is incorrect, please look at her voting record.  In 2008 the National Taxpayers Union gave Senator Snowe a rating of F.

Senator Snowe  has grown public policies which encourage irresponsible behavior on the part of people such as those currently on welfare.

Most recently her idea on healthcare to “help the people” is to compromise in a bi-partisan fashion  so something is achieved.   Why would anyone “compromise” on what is right for the people just to get something done?

Senator Snowe was interviewed by CNBC.  Please watch this video to get a true picture of her view of reality with our government today.

CNBC: Do you think Barack Obama is a big-government liberal?

“SNOWE: No, it’s interesting, I don’t. In fact, I almost sense the opposite

 

In closing, I only have one thing to say.  Senator Snowe, It’s time to go.
