Joe Biden

Postby indianamom » Sat Oct 18, 2008 11:00 pm

I heard some things about Joe Biden I think everyone should know,

There was a special bio on Joe Biden on CNN and they said he was known as "Mr. Credit Card" for being in the pocketbooks for the credit card companies while he was a senator.

They said MBNA had paid him over $200,000 and he was the main force behind the bankruptcy reform bill in 2005. His son was also paid as a consultant by MBNA for years.

I wanted Obama but I'm not sure we should be voting for senator who is in the pocket books of the banking industry. :(

My rates on some of my cards have gone through the roof and I can barely make the minimum payments. Why should I support a man like Joe Biden who caused this?

If that really is the case I think it was smart what he did. I mean frankly is it really the CC's fault when people live way above their means ? Sorry you may not agree with that but if you look at the entire CC and understand the financial market just a little bit you should see that CC's are just a bubble waiting to blow up. If banks feel that they loose their security they'll just raise your interest.

Consider Obama/Biden from a different perspective: they are by far the lesser of the two evils we can vote for.

Fine then go vote for MCSAME. With him you won't have jobs and then you definitely will owe money on your credit cards and paying a bunch of interest.

Idon't think biden didn't do anything different than any of the other politicians out there.
