WATCH: RINO Senator Susan Collins Comes to Life for the First Time Since Kavanaugh to Rip Apart Dems for Blocking Virus Funding
Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who is traditionally viewed as a person who will work more quickly with her Democratic Party allies in the United States Senate than work with President Trump, came to life this afternoon when she put aside her traditionally low energy demeanor to take to task the delay tactics of the Democrats in the Senate concerning the Stimulus Package Bill that is currently being negotiated.
“We are in the midst of a crisis in our country. A crisis caused by the Coronavirus. I cannot believe that the answer to this crisis, as we move to address the economic consequences that are so severe for the people of this country, that the answer from our friends on the other side of the aisle is ‘delay, delay, delay’. No sense of urgency. No hurry,” said Collins from the floor of the Senate.
“I’ve had the honor to serve to this body for many years; Never, never have I seen Republicans and Democrats fail to come together when confronted with a crisis. We did so after 9/11, we did so with the financial meltdown in 2008. Here we are facing an enemy that is invisible but equally devastating to the health of our people and to the health of our economy.”
“And yet unbelievably the Democratic Leader objected to my even being able to speak this morning. Is this what we have come to? The Democratic Leader objective to our convening at nine o’clock this morning so that we could begin working in earnest. Is this what we have come to? “
The Senator from Maine who is on a regular occasion labeled a “Republican in Name Only” end her fiery remarks by saying “We don’t have another day. We don’t have another hour. We don’t have another minute.”
