The Polite Liberal

A rant-free discussion of liberal philosophy and policies.


The Polite Liberal is the pseudonym of a "nontraditional" graduate student in mathematics (for nonacademics, "nontraditional," is a polite way of saying, "older than 25.") The Polite Liberal is an attempt to spur real policy debate, instead of partisan insults and conspiracy theories. Conservatives (and liberals, of course!) are welcome.

Thanks, Boxer, Feinstein, and Lee

Now that the utterly wrongheaded "Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act" has passed both the House and Senate, I'd like to take a moment to thank the folks that represent me in Congress for at least trying to oppose it. Thank you, Senators Boxer and Feinstein, and thank you Congresswoman Lee.

I'm gathering from the comment below and from comments on other blogs that conservatives aren't happy with that particular piece of legislation either. The difference here is that my representatives actually voted against the thing. Why didn't yours? Why didn't even a single Republican House member vote against a law that will deeply hurt many of their constituents?
