I have to believe our elected officials are capable of finding a fair way to address this credit problem . . .
I wonder how that is? It's their "innovations" that got us here to begin with.

They're saying "no" because elections are six weeks away and they know if they pi$$ off their constituents now, they won't get re-elected. So for once, they're doing their JOBS and actually voting their constituency.
