Damn Blue Dogs and DINOs in the Senate
Vote these lobbyist loving bastards out please.

Mortgage reduction bill fails in Senate
Banks lobbied heavily against the measure to help homeowners facing foreclosure.

By Janet Hook
May 1, 2009
Reporting from Washington -- The financial services industry is in trouble over its role in crashing the world economy, but that doesn't mean its lobbyists have lost all their muscle on Capitol Hill.

Exhibit A: The Senate delivered a stinging rebuff to President Obama and consumer advocates Thursday by rejecting a measure to help homeowners facing foreclosure.

"I am sick and tired of being asked to give billions to these banks," said Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who threatened to oppose any further industry bailouts. "If they have no sympathy for homeowners facing foreclosure, I don't have any sympathy for them."
