George F. Will - $250 COLA substitute reflects entitlements culture gone wild -

"Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe is being beatified as the incarnation of bipartisanship because, of the 217 Republican senators and members of Congress, only she cast a vote for a Democratic health-care addition to the nation's Ponzi entitlement structure. Yet in 2005, she opposed a Republican plan for shaving just $10 billion from government health-care entitlements over 10 years. If, as seems probable, she would have opposed the health-care bill she just voted for if Republicans had proposed it, does that devalue her version of bipartisanship?"
