Not so fast in labeling everyone a RINO that will vote against this bill. Allan West (R-FL) is no RINO and explains his reasoning here.
Why does Snowe insist on calling herself a Republican? She doesn’t have a conservative bone in her body.
Centrist Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) said Tuesday that she will vote against Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget when it comes up for a vote in the Senate.
Snowe, who is up for reelection in 2012, praised Ryan for proposing a budget but said that she disagrees with the way it reforms Medicare.
“I am going to vote ‘no’ on the budget because I have deep and abiding concerns about the approach on Medicare, which is essentially to privatize it,” Snowe told The Portland Press Herald.
Snowe joins her fellow Maine Sen. Susan Collins (R) and Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R), each a centrist who has said they will oppose the budget. Like Snowe, Brown faces reelection in 2012.
