THE JOE PITTS BAD VOTE COUNTDOWN: NO HELP FOR TROUBLED HOMEOWNERS
What is it with Congressman Pitts and people who want to buy and stay in their homes? Does he have stock in a tent company? The Herr 2010 campaign uncovers another vote against the bread-and-butter interests of his constituents:
VOTE #33: H.R. 1106, Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009
In February of 2009, the housing bubble had long since burst and millions of homeowners had lost their jobs or owned homes whose value had fallen below their mortgage balance. They needed help, and fast. This bill allowed some troubled homeowners to get mortgage modifications, made it harder for some homeowners to be forced into bankruptcy, and enhanced the availability of credit. On March 5th, the bill passed the House 234-191. And did Rep. Pitts’ less fortunate constituents get any sympathy?
Pitts votes NO.
Well, the bill did exclude people with net worths of over $1 million. Less than that and Joe just may not have cared. Sad.
We can’t read Joe’s mind, but we can read his record. There are 32 more Bad Pitts votes ahead, one each day.
