Major Bills

February 25, 2009 - by Donny Shaw

I’m on a layover in Philadelphia, so no time to write, but here are links to two major pieces of legislation that were just introduced to Congress earlier this week and are slated for consideration starting today. One is the $410 billion consolidated appropriations bill for FY 2009 and the other is a major housing reform bill:

  • H.R.1105 – Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009
  • H.R. 1106 – Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009

The full legislative text is posted for both; dig in and see what you find.

    What the hell is going on? The economy is a bust,the planners plan and the more the plans fail,the more they plan!! To top it all off H.Clinton has promised the Gaza strip 600 million dollars!! Now that is insane!! If this continues,there will be a reckoning on the horizon. The American people are not so stupid as to not see what the Godless politicians are up to.

    Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009…are you kidding me ?!?! Most people living in their homes now are “underwater” – meaning that they owe more than their home is worth. Why are we putting government money into programs to keep people in homes that they will never be able to pay off in their lifetimes ?!! We should be telling people to walk away from their homes, and get back in 3 to 5 years later, where these same homes can be bought for way less than what is currently owed on the mortgage. Our current housing policy is madness !!
