      •  mortgage industry is ramping up (0+ / 0-)

        Mortgage industry officials, meanwhile, are less than thrilled that the so-called "cramdown" provision, which would allow judges to modify loans, might get a second chance in Congress.

        "We continue to think it's a bad idea, especially given the market of uncertainty" the country is in, said Steve O'Conner, a senior vice president at the Mortgage Bankers Association.

      Once they're bought, they tend to stay bought.  While it can't hurt to try lobbying them, what has happened since the last vote that might change their approach?

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

      for providing it.  Oddly, it doesn't make me stop and think  ;-)

    •  Some of these Senators face re-election in 2010! (0+ / 0-)

      And whether or not they are there for their constituents when they are most needed needs to be HIGHLY publicized.
       Arlin Specter is most vulnerable, as he faces a Primary challenge.
        Plantation Blanche (Lincoln) may well be facing one too (from Lt. Gov. Halter), and is already on shaky ground.
         Michael Bennet will run for a term in his own right next year as well, and had better get his ass off of this list if he wants more than 2 years and out.
         I don't believe ANY Senator would have the audacity to filibuster this Bill given the current economic climate in the Nation, so it's likely a matter of shrinking that list, rather than getting them all. But still, everyone should take note of any no votes, because it takes a serious crapbag to vote against this measure.
        And if Harry Reid cries about needing 60 votes on this one, he'd just be asking to have the last nail banged into his coffin, for he too faces the voters next year!
