The House Picks Up Where The Senate Left Off
"...lawmakers defeated a mortgage “cram-down” amendment that would have given federal judges the power to lengthen mortgage terms, cut interest rates and reduce loan balances for homeowners in bankruptcy court."

Slovenly reporting by Bloomberg and repeated by SS. 71 of the nay votes were cast by democrats, with more than 20% of the House dems not voting. Interesting though that it looks like Ron Paul was one of 4 republicans to cast an aye vote.
[Editor’s Note: As it's the legislation rather than partisan slant which is our focus, ellipses have been slovenly inserted where Bloomberg's "Republican" used to be.]
