Apparently, There IS Bipartisanship in Washington

Apparently, there is bipartisanship in Washington … at least when the right “constituents” come calling.

You probably already know about the foreclosure document mess.  Well, lucky for the banks, some constituents contacted their Senators, and almost instantly, a bill protecting the banks was passed.

A bill that homeowners advocates warn will make it more difficult to challenge improper foreclosure attempts by big mortgage processors is awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature after it quietly zoomed through the Senate last week.

The House passed the bill last April.  So it’s off to the president for his signature.

So, you see, Washington does pay attention to what “constituents” want, as long as those constituents are the paying kind.
