Senator Snowe is poised to kill healthcare reform

Josh Marshall over at TalkingPointsMemo says Maine Republican Senator Olympia Snowe is at the center of the national healthcare reform debate - and that she is lining up support for a move that would kill any hope of a single-payer system, as well as any hope of a government-run plan that would compete with private health-insurance companies.

Marshall describes her plan as, effectively, a delaying tactic, that would promise a government-run plan, but only many years from now, and only if health-insurance companies don't bring down costs and expand coverage. 

Go read his post - it's short - and then make whatever use of the following info you might think appropriate:
