Susan Collins claims she crosses the aisle, but it’s obvious where she sits

Susan Collins, like too many other good people in the Republican Party, gives in to the financial reality in our current election system (“Collins finds reaction to votes anything but moderate,” Page A1, Feb. 21). She can hem and haw on less vital issues to get “crossing the aisle” credit, but she caves on decisive stances, such as those for Brett Kavanaugh and the nonsensical tax cut.

Democrats need to realize that Collins is, and will always be, first and foremost, a loyal Republican.

Until Citizens United is overturned by congressional legislation, we are doomed to have the best government money can buy.
