Letters to the Portland editor, September 25, 2009
I appreciate Deirdre Fulton's nuanced reflection on moderates Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins (see "We Told You So," September 18) except that she fails to note the elephant in the picture: both vote 100 percent for the military-industrial complex, imperialism, war, and repression of Palestinians (Collins 150 percent on the last), which evil overwhelms whatever redeeming votes they have cast ? and denies funds for health care, education, pollution reduction, etc. They may be as consistent supporters of HMO greed at the expense of life for tens of thousands and health for millions annually who are denied care. Progressives cannot live with this!
