Swines in Senate Defeat Bankruptcy Legislation

During the Bush Administration, the Senate and House were successful in limiting homeowners' bankruptcy filings, a move that helped bankers earn more money at the expense of the citizens- no surprise there.

Yesterday, a Senate bill that would ameliorate that tough bankruptcy ruling was defeated in a not-even close vote, 51-54. Lots of Democrats voted with the bankers in defeating this bill. Here is the list of these scoundrels:

Baucus (D-MT)
Bennet (D-CO)
Byrd (D-WV)
Carper (D-DE)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Johnson (D-SD)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Lincoln (D-AR)
Nelson (D-NE)
Specter (D-PA)
Tester (D-MT)
Pryor (D-AR)

Banks before people- quite the Republican agenda. I'll bet that the banking institutions and other mortgage dealers have donated lots of money to these Democratic senators over the years and, clearly, checks to their re-election campaign are being written today.

This sucks!
