Victims of Katrina: Round 2

Even after all the victims of Katrina have been evacuated, another disaster will befall them. George W. Bush's anti-bankruptcy bill goes into effect on October 17.

Good news for credit card companies, banks, mortgage companies, and other friends and supporters of the Bushites. They will still be able to collect debts from those people who lost everything they own.

Remember to thank Joe Biden (a wholy owned subsidiary of MBNA) and Diane Feinstein and Hillary Clinton and others who helped the Repugs pass that legislation. Most importantly, remember them next time you vote.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee tried to add an amendment that would protect victims of disasters but it was defeated along party lines.
