bankrupt

Today, Kathleen Day of the Washington Post tells us, Bankruptcy Bill Nears Final Senate Vote. They got the votes for cloture, so it's just a brief matter of formally running out the clock and having the final vote.

A lot of rank and file Dems are pissed off that

Biden (DE)
Byrd (WV)
Carper (DE)
Conrad (ND)
Johnson (SD)
Kohl (WI)
Landrieu (LA)
Lieberman (CT)
Lincoln (AR)
Nelson (FL)
Nelson (NE)
Pryor (AR)
Salazar (CO)
Stabenow (MI)

these Dems voted for cloture on this bill. Carper, Biden and Conrad, I can see, but Byrd? Stabenow?

Faked out by Bushco over the nonexistent Social Security legislation. Oh well, "Pick your battles!"

Poor people do not vote, so pols just don't care when it comes down to the wire. It's just a sad fact. The well-to-do will still be protected and credit card companies, now free from the moral hazard of knowingly lending to people how cannot repay, will be on a rampage. Oh-thanks for the link- when I get around to learning how to set up links, I will repay.
