Susan Collins wants to offer amendments to the health care bill that she will not vote for in order to "improve" it. From Digby:

This is what I was talking about last night when I wrote "this bill probably isn't bad enough for Lieberman and his cronies to allow Democrats to commit political suicide with it."

Nobody who has announced that they will not vote for this bill should be allowed to "improve" it at this point. Unless, of course, the point is to take out every remaining piece that could even slightly offset the mandate. Which it might be. After all, Republicans are really messed up these days and need something clean and simple to run on. The least the Democrats can do is help them out.

I agree. They should not be allowing this, but they've been doing that from day one with all of the Republican amendments that were accepted in the Finance Committee. Heaven forbid they might stop now.

Can you help us out?
