***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Just when I had my blood pressure, swollen feet, and migraine headaches under control, I turned on C-SPAN2. At the bankruptcy bill debate I threw my walker across the living room to hit the television. My walker knocked over two lamps and hit the television. Please turn on C-Span2 today Monday, March 7 and tomorrow March 8 for the bankruptcy debate. Senators, Both Democrats and Republicans are making it easier for credit card companies to take homes from us by forcing us into bankruptcy. I do not know how I will get across the living room to my walker. Without it I am stuck in this uncomfortable computer chair. Now the politicians have caused my migraine to be so strong that I see a permanent streak of lightening across my vision. Senators Mitch McConnell, Bill Frist and Orin Hatch are pushing the new bankruptcy bill. (Verify at 1-202-224-3121, Senate Phone Number). McConnell, Frist and Hatch want to pass the bankruptcy bill that will push us, especially the retired, very elderly, single mothers, and widows from our homes. Sens McConnell, Frist and Hatch are expanding homelessness by changing the bankruptcy law so credit card companies can take our homes if we are slow on our payments to the credit cards. Sen Kennedy wants to prevent homelessness by keeping people in their homes after bankruptcy. No where and never before has the betrayal by politicians of the public been so blatant.

With the Bankruptcy bill Both Republicans and Democrats are pushing a change that makes it easier for banks to expel us from our homes. Senator Kennedy 1-202-224-3121 wants us to keep our homes after bankruptcy as do all residents in Florida and Texas. Senator Orin Hatch, Republican, 1-202-224-3121 wants to give creditors more power to throw us from our homes. Then when we are homeless and the credit card companies have auctioned off our home, we would still have to pay the debts thought unemployed and homeless. Hatch, McConnell, and Frist have even mentioned the "usefulness of debtor's prison. The politicians wish to give creditors greater power to dispossess us and make us homeless. Senator Kennedy has proposed an amendment that would allow everyone nationwide to keep their homes after bankruptcy. This way workers would have time for their cities, counties, and states to bring in new manufacturers for new jobs. Both Republicans and Democrats voted down this amendment, so that only the wealthy with legal loopholes of trusts and homes in Florida and Texas can keep their homes. This bankruptcy bill will even enable credit card companies to drive anyone into bankruptcy and take our homes. This injustice is glaring. My left foot is so swollen that it is turning purple. The other senators treated Sen Kennedy with the deepest spite. No where and never before has the betrayal by politicians been so blatant. They have utter contempt for us. The politicians are for the banks and clearly making us homeless. Who is bribing who? I am old enough to know that a bribe talks and that all else walks. Right now only Senator Kennedy's amendment to the Bankruptcy bill will help us. Only Senator Kennedy wants to makes sure that we are not made homeless by bankruptcy in this changing world where industries can disappear with a single new invention or overseas competition. Please turn on C-SPAN2 and watch this debate. Call 1-202-224-3121 to you senator and you yourself will verify what I say of politicians betraying us. I wonder, can I sue the senate for my medical bills. Hopefully an old neighbor will visit as he usually does to cuss politicians with me. If he does visit he will pull my walker leg from my busted TV set and give it to me so that I can throw it again. _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
