She Knew! No One Listened

Last edited Sun Nov 10, 2019, 03:44 PM - Edit history (2)

She had studied & taught bankruptcy law, contract law & commercial law.

Elizabeth Warrenís January 2008 economic warnings went unheeded.

The Best Most Informative Insights w/Charts. Soul food for the families of America.



The following January 10, 2008 quiet interview provides an autobiographical insight into how a contrarian girl raised by Dust Bowl poor farmers from Oklahoma became Senator Warren



I found these talks as I was reading the proposed Congressional ACA plans & revisions from cover to cover.

Elizabeth Warren caught my attention.

Her passion & compassion inspired the writing of several, in-depth articles as ACA unfolded.

I just remembered them today facing open enrollment.

Enjoy

She nails our dilemmas perfectly

4. As a consumer bankruptcy attorney, I recall Warren fighting hard against the Bankruptcy Reform Act

 

that was quite literally written by MBNA bank. I knew the fight was lost when the bills most ardent opponent Sen. Wellstone died in a plane crash. What a horrible night. I am seeing a significant increase in calls from clients seeking bankruptcy relief at the present time.

5. Oh dear. Not surprising.

 

The huge rise in Housing & automobiles costs alone are an attack on Americans.

Greed requires legislation to tame the worst instincts of humankind.

Shameful that tax lawyers & accountants are enriched by crafting schemes to rob America. Iíve worked with both.

Tax law is written by special interests period!

7. Very true. I have the same feeling now as I did in 2006-2007. People are coming in with multiple

 

cards all maxed out using one to pay the other.

8. I've been seeing signs, too.

 

Seems like a lot of older people are struggling. And young rural families.

6. I am curious

 

what are the main reasons for the "significant increase" you are seeing now

I am betting medical costs is one of them?

9. While medical costs are a major cause for filing bankruptcy, the uptick I am seeing is

 

irresponsible lending the banks. Clients are trying to carry $60-$70k in credit card debit and their incomes simply arenít sufficient to cover the minimum payments. Then they are car repair or unpaid missed week of work from disaster. I will see filing related to medical costs later on due to lay-offs or job loss and people lose their medical coverage. The main reasons for filing I see at the moment are divorce, job lose and over-extended credit. The cost of living in NJ is high and most people live paycheck to paycheck. Even higher income earners over $250 a year are having difficulty. Lastly, the cost of medical insurance is outrageous. Most decent family plans in NJ will cost about $2,300 a month. For people who arenít on employer sponsored plans itís like a mortgage payment. Middle class needs immediate tax relief. I pay $17,000 just in property taxes to the State of NJ but because of Trumpís tax plan can only deduct $10k. Sorry for rambling but the tax system is a sham.

10. aw no, ramble away

 

wasn't irresponsible lending a big factor in our recent great recession? And I hear you about medical insurance -and that cost doesn't even include the deductibles and co-pays - it is outrageous

11. Banks did not learn their lesson from 2008. I'm sure we will see liar mortgage loans soon.

13. Liar Loans. Is MERS still operating?

 

In my area, huge post-war like housing complexes have & continue to be built. Where does all that $$ come from? Chunks of the developments are for sale and listed on the MLS.

Your insights are very helpful Pepsidog

Thank you
