BARF Not Geting Voted On This Month?
I've been watching C-SPAN 2 the last few days and I called up to my senators and to the office of the office of the man who sponsored the bill and it seems like BARF isn't high on the list of things to get done today. With the Senate set to go on the Summer recess at 10/11 PM tonight and so many other issues, and the fact they said not votes today, what is the likely hood of BARF being voted on today-- teh end of the spring session-- or even being a issued raised on the floor? Far as I know thye've nto even touched Union Calendar 50 yet, which is supposed the calendar with BARF on it?
It's been my opinion (which has known to be correct now and then) that there really aren't enough votes in the Senate to pass this version of Bankruptcy "reform". At the end of the day, I think the argument that this isn't a good time to burden the stuggling middle class with limitations on the bankruptcy option will sway enough Democratic Senators to prevent the necessary 60 votes to stop debate during any filibuster. Like any bill Congress comes up with, there is both good and bad in this package, though I agree that the crap far outweighs the gold. If the 6 year time bar on filing Chapter 7 is lengthened, I don't necessarily think that is a horrible idea. On the other hand, forcing people into credit counseling is just plain stupid, and the new requirements on bankruptcy attorneys are mind-bogglingly daft. (An attorney can be responsible for client misrepresentations? Even AUDITORS don't accept that responsibility.) A lot of the rest of the bill's provisions seem needlessly punitive in nature...it's as if the banks have decided not only to tilt things back in their favor, but get EVEN with these $#%(@ debtors....!
