    • On April 12, 2008, by cmrk3 - This bill will save lives so it deserves full support. The principle of Jubilee is found in the Old Testament where every 50 years all debts were to be cancelled so that all the tribes of Israel would get their inheritance back. It is also echoed by Jesus. It is time for the rich to help the poor instead of taking advantage of the poor. It is time for the Kingdom of God to advance on earth as it is in Heaven.
