So, the big bankruptcy bill went into law last week and there was an interesting article in the Post
this weekend about the disparity in treatment of corporate bankrupts versus citizen bankrupts. Take a guess for whom bankruptcy is easier.
Bankruptcy is a wonderful Give Up issue. There has probably been no other bill passed by Republicans that will more thoroughly screw their own constituents than the bankruptcy bill. Go Republicans! Dig your grave! Woohooo!
Source for Bankruptcy data was the American Bankruptcy Institute, Total Business and Non-business Filings (2000-2003) by state, www.abiworld.org , the rate per capita was determined using state population data from the United States Census www.census.gov from the appropriate year.
