Bankruptcy Bill

I haven't said much about this because it's just too depressing to contemplate. I was shocked that they managed to put down this beast earlier, and don't imagine the Dems will block it. I wish they'd surprise me. Dionne writes:

If Democrats sell out on the bankruptcy bill, they will, alas, show which side they're on.

This is a pure corporate whore bill. Unlike even "tort reform" which gives the GOP base orgasmic pleasure for some bizarre reason, there is no popular support for this thing. Not one voter is going to decide to vote against a Democrat because s/he voted against this thing. It's a horrible bill, and shame on anyone who votes for it.
