Murkowski Gets It, But Too Late

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Republican from Alaska, now says she is sorry that she voted for the Blunt-Rubio Amendment, which would have allowed an employer to deny health insurance coverage, such as for contraception, for any religious or moral reason.

The only Republican to vote against the amendment was Sen. Olympia Snowe, who is retiring.

I had hoped to see Murkowski and Susan Collins of Maine join Snowe.
