Morally Bankrupt?

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) attempted to derail bankruptcy reform legislation last Tuesday when he offered a “poison pill” amendment that would have prevented pro-life activists from using bankruptcy protection to shield their assets. It failed on a 53-to-46 vote. Schumer said these “violent extremists” shouldn’t be afforded the same protection as others. The amendment halted action on the bill in 2002 and prevented the Senate from even the bill’s passage in the Senate, and with expected approval from the House, gives President Bush his second legislative victory of the new Congress. He’s already signed into law class-action lawsuit reforms.
