Right-Wing Blog Sends Rock Salt to Olympia Snowe to ‘Melt Her’

October 14, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Some right-wing conservatives are none too pleased with Maine’s Republican Senator, Olympia Snowe’s yes vote on Tuesday, joining with the Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee, to pass the Baucus health care reform bill.

But Erick Erickson, Editor-in-Chief of the conservative Red State blog, has taken his displeasure with Snowe’s health care vote to comical proportions, urging his readers to mail the New England Senator a bag of rock salt to “melt her.” Get it? Rock salt melts snow.

    HA! HA! Funny. Snowe is ot courageous. She is politically safe. She represents a liberal district and has no contenders.

    · For individuals making $34,140 (three times the Federal Poverty Level) the Baucus health care proposal could mandate up to $4,097 in annual premiums, a sum which could have been spent on over nine months of food, almost four months of housing or well over a year of utilities.
    · For a family of four making $69,480 (300 percent above poverty) the Baucus bill mandates annual health insurance premiums of $8,338, which would be worth the equivalent of over 10 months of food, four months of housing or almost two years of utilities.
    · For individuals earning $45,520 (400 percent above poverty) Baucus mandates $5,462 for health insurance, or over a year of food, four months of rent or a year and a half of utilities.
    · For families earning $92,640 (400 percent above poverty) Baucus mandates $11,117 in health premiums, the equivalent of over a year of food, five months of housing or two years of utilities.”
