Whispering Sweet Nothings to the Banksters

Your Democratic leaders in Action (while talking about the possibility of including the ability for bankruptcy judges to re-write the terms of mortgages, you know the ONLY proposal in the bailout plan that MIGHT ACTUALLY SAVE A FUCKING HOUSE)

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Obama said the provision was a priority, but one that he'd be willing to sacrifice in the interest of a bipartisan deal.

He said he told Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., the majority leader, that the measure "is probably something that we shouldn't try to do in this piece of legislation."
That's right little people. You poor homeowners are once again fodder in the struggle for bipartisan cooperation among the privileged. Can't let those pesky things like waves new homeless people get in the way of saving our friends, the banksters.

Of course Obama has already shelved his half assed healthcare plan. Can't afford it now that we have to pay for Wall Street's illness. I'm waiting for them to cancel all public school education because the stock market is broken.
