NY Dem Reps Selling Their Souls

From a post on WFP's blog we learn that one of our NY Dems actually led the efforts to pass the big business handout Bankruptcy Bill. From The Hill:

"Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) summoned Democratic lobbyists to the Capitol for a meeting last week and then dispatched them to solidify pro-business Democratic support for the bankruptcy reform bill, adopting a practice regularly used by the Republican majority and its business allies on K Street."

Our NY representatives - taking the big bribes just like they were good Republicans. To the money quote:

“They ought to be ashamed of themselves,” said Rep. David Obey (D-Wis.) “This bill is a measure of how bought-off both parties are.”

Shame? For a bribed politician? Oh, Representative Obey. You must be spending too much time in Wisconsin.
