The Hill: "I don't happen to support Congressman Ryan's plan but at least he had the courage to put forth a plan to significantly reduce the debt," Collins said on "In the Arena" a program on WCSH 6, a local NBC affiliate in Portland, Maine.
Collins is the first Republican senator to state publicly that she will not support the Ryan budget. [...]
Collins, who is one of several centrists in the Senate Republican Caucus, did not say specifically what she opposed in the House GOP plan, but she did say that she would like to begin moving the government towards solvency by eliminating ethanol and farm subsidies as well as funding for an extra engine for the F-35 fighter jet.
"There are lots of opportunities to consolidate and save money," Collins said.Wonderful, she rejects a serious plan to cut spending in favor of chasing pennies.
You can always count on RINOs to gum up the works when you need their vote the most. I firmly believe that it would be far better to lose an election to a Democrat than to continue electing these unprincipled and unreliable so called "Republicans". From 2012 forward, conservatives should make it their business to primary each and every RINO until we are finally rid of the scourge!
