Snowe expresses frustrations over extenders debate

 She instructed Democrats to move a stand alone doc fix that was paid for and extend unemployment insurance as its own bill. 

"I would vote for it," she said. "Let's work on the other issues. The issues I have concerns about was the S corp and retroactive tax increases, and paying for FMAP with stimulus." 

Senate leaders apparently agreed to make those changes. However, on Wednesday night, Snowe requested to see the legislative changes in writing, which never happened.  

"Next thing I know, we got a call from the Chairman's [Baucus] staff saying, 'sorry, there were members of their Caucus who would not accept removing the retroactivity provision and they wanted the S corp provision reinserted," Snowe said. "So that's where it was left. That's the story."
