Foreclosures: Please condemn this hypocrisy

Downsize DC President Jim Babka will be speaking in Williamsport, PA this Saturdy. Details below the signature.

Have you heard about the “robo-signers” scandal in the mortgage industry? Mortgage company employees have signed foreclosure-related affidavits without knowing if they were true.

Professor Donald J. Boudreaux draws a parallel to Congress not reading the bills they pass.

The politicians are screaming and waving their hands about the “robo-signers” in the mortgage industry, but, hypocrites that they are, they refuse to do anything about their own “robo-legislating.”

Please condemn this hypocrisy. Please inform Congress of this parallel and tell them to introduce and pass the Read the Bills Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

Professor Donald J. Boudreaux compares the alleged “robo-signers” of mortgage-foreclosure documents to . . . YOU! http://tinyurl.com/2dx3mhx

Robo-signers are “posers who sign and give life to legal documents without even reading the contents of these documents.”

Whereas, Congress votes “to give life to legislation without even reading the contents of the legislation.”

According to DownsizeDC.org, the House has passed 346 bills and the Senate 183 bills so far in 2010. The average bill length is 44 pages. http://www.downsizedc.org/blog/the-congressional-tally-so-far-2010

Did you read any of them? Or are you a “robo-legislator?”

We the people are are always impacted – and often hurt – by your legislation. Do us the decency of at least knowing what you’re voting for. Take the bills you’re considering as seriously as if you were signing a foreclosure document on someone’s house.
