Allyson Schwartz/Bankruptcy Watch continues

Has anyone heard anything from Rep. Schwartz to their Bankruptcy complaints? I know for a fact that she heard it from a lot of people. Yet, I still have not heard a single explanation from her office. If she thinks she can just hide out for a few weeks and expect this to blow over, she is wrong. She voted for the worst piece of consumer legislation in recent history, one that especially aims at women with medical crises. (This, from a Congresswoman who was the goddamned Director of Elizabeth Blackwell Health Center for Women.)

Nah, this is one we will remember for a long time.

Congresswoman Schwartz may have moved from liberal NW Philly to run for Congress, but she still gets an incredible amount of financial support from 19119 and the like. Here is to hoping they cut her off.

Wrong. It means plenty when a supposed progressive votes for a disgusting piece if legisdlation aimed at those she is supposed to represent and protect. And in doing so, she helped give it the cover of "bipartisan."

Here are five quick things that easily deserve more of our energy and focus...

1. Protecting our libraries and fireman by exposing City Hall and its political grandstanding (ooops...you *did* give us the money for libraries...our bad...)

2. Protecting Social Security

3. Talking about and supporting a positive mayoral candidate for the city

4. Loudly calling out City Council for its vote on the Ethics Bill and their non-vote on the Smoking Bill

5. Forcing an honest look at Delay

Robert-

I think you are very wrong. I am not the kind of person who gets mad about something for a day, then simply ignores it. The pain of the bankruptcy bill will be felt for a long time, and, so I will be talking about it for a long time. Ignoring the vote of our "rpogressive" congresswoman would be a big mistake, and a further invitation to invite her to shaft working and middle class people.

As far as what you think we should be covering, simply use the Technorati search option in the sidebar. And, of course, anyone is free to write about whatever they want on their own blog.

1. Here, here.

2. Here.

3. Here, here, here.

4. Here.

5. I don't write about national issues generally on thie blog. That isnt why it is around.

She's my rep and her vote didn't bother me a bit nor will stop me from supporting her in 2006 and beyond. Her vote did not mean a thing. The bankruptcy bill was going to pass regardless of how any Dem voted.
