A lot is being made of U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe’s vote in favor of the health care bill this week, but Sen. Tom Harkin said this morning her vote isn’t needed to shut off debate, which he considers the key test.So I guess that means bi-partisanship is out?
“I’m confident we’ll have it with or without Sen. Snowe,” the Iowa Democrat said.
As for bi-partisanship, Harkin said it’s not as important as passing an effective piece of legislation.Yep.
“It seems to me we have to do what we believe is right and the correct course of action,” he said. Republicans, he says, have been given a chance to weigh in but still are opposing reform.I guess he's never heard of the tyranny of good intentions.
