The Daily Quote

"The reality that crafting the right approach [to healthcare reform] is arduous in no way obviates our responsibility to make it happen. Everyone has differing opinions on how to tackle this historic challenge. Yet, virtually every person I've encountered – throughout Maine and America – understands unequivocally, even if they have health insurance, that the current system is broken – and that this is not a solution in search of a problem.”

     - Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME), 10/13/09
