  • NY Times/AP: Bankruptcy Bill Dies in the House — This is very good news!

    This is not the time to kick the poor when their down on behalf of giant credit companies. Charging 25% interest for credit cards should be a crime. If bankruptcy can give poor and middle class folks some relief from these blood sucking leaches on society, then so be it. Hopefully Congress won’t try to pass this again for awhile.
