This week, the U. Senate decided that banks and the rest of the financial services industry are way more important than say Exhibit A: The Senate delivered a stinging rebuff to President Obama and consumer advocates Thursday by rejecting a measure to help homeowners facing foreclosure.
The vote was 51 to 45, with 12 Democrats joining Republicans in opposing the proposal, under which bankruptcy judges could order lenders to reduce the principal on home mortgages.
The proposal, which sailed through the House in March, was a key part of Obama's plan to reduce the tide of home foreclosures. Its defeat in the Senate marked a turnaround for the Democratic supporters of the bill, who had hoped that the party's new majority would boost its chances for passage. Instead, Democratic leaders were furious to see bankers lobbying against consumer protection measures after Congress had approved enormous sums to shore up the financial services industry.
Nobody could have seen that coming Both of Oregon's senators voted the right way, incidentally. At least we have good guys on our side from Oregon trying to take care of business. Here's Merkley talking about it on Ed Schultz:. The excuses from other legislators who didn't vote for this are absurd and shameful. And irritating. And why would Congress, not just the senate, do that?
Perhaps it is because, as Ralph Nader and Naderites have been saying for years corporations own Congress. If Nader and his Naderites say that don't pay any attention to them. They are just a bunch of kooks. This - "Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. He's losing. Max Baucus is doing the bidding of the health care industry. I think those 12 senators deserve some special attention over this vote next time they're up for re-election.
We have a winnner and it makes me feel so good that we were able to replace Smith with Jeff. Anyone want to guess how Smith Senator Moderate would have voted? This particular bunch of guys here in Oregon seems to be passing laws with unintended consequences on a startlingly regualar basis, and, in my industry, taking Power's word for it instead of searchingly asking the rest of us who share the landscape just what it might ALSO look like And nobody here except the Raging Fringe are holding him responsible.
What's up with that BO mainstreamers? Obama has actually increased our involvement. The New Yorker is reliable about speaking truth to power.
From the moment after they called Bush the shit he is. And never stopped. So: while many good things have been done, Obama and his people are slipping a war machine hairball past us. RW: You can't have it both ways. Either Obama is increasing our involvement in Iraq, or he's going to reduce spending by reducing troop levels.
Can't be both. This is an "elected good guys and got screwed" post. I feel we elected good guys and I'm watching people I care for get screwed here at home, noticing that nobody here thinks those particular laws are interesting enough to ask about medical arena laws are being slogged about really quietly right now - now I'm talking to individual clinics to alert managers to how their bosses politics are actually going to hurt them I think he's a good guy and in one important area, a screwing seems possible.
Reframe around the false claim of Trillions saved, will that suffice, Kari? SO, even as we have increased our involvement commitment, he is claiming to save us lotsa shekels based not on his current actions in the wars, but, rather, on the surge period spending of his predecessor.
Kari, I dunno, the "In which we elect good guys and still get screwed Let's focus on the substance where you are agreeing with Carla, or she is agreeing with you if you like. This isn't actually new. There are lots of people around here who think national politics are corrupted in perfectly legal ways by excessive corporate power. I daresay from the cynical expressions in her post, and for other reasons, Carla probably is one of them.
What do you suggest we do about it, besides casting symbolic votes for president for a guy running without any kind of broader movement behind him, that might enable him to do anything except be obstructed and sabotaged even if elected, that in your case fulfill your sense of personal integrity, apparently? Personally I don't look for my sense of personal integrity in my votes, especially for president. The system does not offer me any choices that I would regard as having integrity.
For me, that includes Nader, for you, not -- I don't think it's worth fighting over. Allowing bankruptcy judges the power to make willy-nilly changes to mortgages is unfair and destructive to the concept of binding contracts. This was bad legislation that deserved to be defeated. Over at Open Left the other day Adam Green noted that there was virtually no mass mobilization in support of the cramdown bill - in contrast to the concerted lobbying by the Mortgage Bankers Association et al.
So: one lesson is that since we know the level of power and influence that the banks and the financial services sector as a whole can exert on Congress, we can hardly expect different results unless we're much better organized as a counterforce.
Hell, half the time we can't even get Democrats in the Oregon legislature to do the right thing on "easy" issues like predatory lending - but that's a whole nother story. Many, if not most, of my comments are in response to people talking nonsense. In other cases, as above, I endorse or amplify statements. What do you suggest? That we let people get away with hogwash? On a higher level, do you think investigative journalists should quit?
After all, they mostly tell us what we already know. They mainly give us details - variations on a sordid theme. What was the point in Seymour Hersh telling us about torture and plans to attack Iran if all but a few people on the fringe sit on their butts and say the "government" is just going to do what it wants anyway?
Gore Vidal, despite writing for "The Nation," once said that magazine has little effect. The same could be said for most of the alternative media. It is true that few, if any, of their candidates get elected, but they serve an important role - they keep the candle of hope for a better world alight.
Without them, we would only have the mainstream media and their distortions and lies, and the only thing people would understand would be the darkness. In the early days of African Americans fighting for civil rights, there is no doubt there were plenty of people telling the movement's leaders their efforts were pointless. And they were for a long time, but in the end their goal, at least important parts of it, was achieved. More germane, you can bet there were many people telling Ralph Nader he couldn't beat General Motors, but he kept his eye on the prize and won.
Now he and others aim for a bigger prize - governments - federal, state and local - that will be, if not totally clean then, less corrupt. When Obama started running for the presidency there were people just ga-ga over him because of his rhetoric.
Some of us were skeptical. He has brought some change as he promised, but in other cases he has reneged in important ways. If there were no critical voices then we shouldn't be surprised if he reneged on all his promises.
I don't know about other people considered on this site as Naderites, but in my case I have been influenced by many others outside the mainstream - Walter Karp, I. Stone, Mencken among others. Their names still carry a lot of respect, but can you name any hacks who were their contemporaries? Few, if any, of their preferred candidates will ever be elected to high office, but we are better, and the world is a better place, for them.
Even if they are mostly tilting at windmills. Would anyone suggest to Uri Avnery, Gideon Levy, Amira Hass that it is time for them to stop harping for peace in Israel and Palestine and treating the Palestinians as human beings? After all, the candidates of the far right are the ones that get elected in Israel while the few from the peace section are of little consequence.
My question about those laudable folks you name: do they bitch, bite, rag and deride? Do they rage and punch in words? Or do they eloquently make their cases, with passion, and yet humility and a connective humanity? We so often roll out names of people we wish we were. Never realizing that just because we admire them does not mean we acquit ourselves in any ways like them. It was a stupid bill and it deserved to go down in defeat. Folks in the House knew that the more responsible guys over in the Senate would kill the bill so they voted freely.
Some Senators got free passes with the left wing loonies by voting on it since they knew that other more responsible folks would keep it from passing. Everyone pitched in to keep Obama from having to veto a stupid bill. Same thing happened with the bill to retoactively tax bonuses. The idiots in the House pass it so they can get cheers from the idiot left but then the responsible folks in the Senate kill it so Obama doesn't have to veto.
Same old game, been going on a long time. If you actually think that that your little puerile blast serves any purpose whatsoever, outside the context of your own personality disorder, you may need to add yourself to the list of idiots that you have identified. For just a little perspective, let me cite that radical left wing rag, the Wall St. Journal :. Oh - and workers' contracts have also been fair game :. Skeel, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania, about economic downturns.
