Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) will double-down this weekend on the rejection of a public option she told Brian about yesterday.

In an interview set to air on Bloomberg, Snowe tells the network’s Al Hunt that she’s opposed to any public option’s inclusion in a health care bill because it gives the government too much control of the health care industry:

“A public option at the forefront really does put the government in a disproportionate position with respect to the industry,” she says in the interview.
