Sen. Susan Collins (R) Maine cast a key vote for the Trump Tax Bill, giving $1.5 trillion to big corporations and the wealthiest Americans and laying the groundwork for a challenge to Obamacare. She helped pack the courts with Trump-appointed judges, like Judge Engelhardt to the 5th Circuit, who will decide for or against the law protecting coverage for pre-existing conditions. She cast the deciding vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, putting women’s health and reproductive rights in peril. She pretends to be a moderate. Mainers take note: Senator Collins has become a water-carrier for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. A lap lobster.
"Pro-choice" Susan Collins has voted to confirm 32 anti-abortion Trump judges.
Collins still claims Brett Kavanaugh won't vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. She also thinks Maine will re-elect her.
