Money Wins

Why am I not surprised here?

The Senate rejects a bill to help homeowners. The bill would have allowed bankruptcy-court judges to reduce the value of some mortgages. The financial and real estate industries opposed it. Twelve democrats voted against it.

Guess who were the top contributors to these 12 democrats? The table below lists the democrats that voted against this bill and the money contributed to them by the Fiance, and Insurance & Real Estate sector.
They are listed in order of total contribution over their career. Money wins over helping the people...again. Now, how many more people are going to lose their homes?

Another reason why we need public financing of elections. The politicians need to answer to us, not to big business.


  1. I am continually amazed at how easily these politicians are bought.

  2. money always wins! even in places where they print up their own money!
