Remember that the Bankruptcy Bill has not yet been passed by the House. Despite the fact that the mafia chief, Tom DeLay, is in charge of the House, there is every reason to believe that the backlash from both the left and the right has created an opportunity to defeat this bill before it gets passed. There is more than enough reason to believe that even Republican representatives can be persuaded to vote against this monstrosity as it is clear that most messages to them must be pretty sour right now. Use Congress.org to send a message via email or find their phone number here using your 9 digit zipcode. If you need a reminder about why this bill is so bad for consumers, read Elizabeth Warren's latest explanation.
