Will the Senate Side with Homeowners or Banks?

Posted: Updated:

The House just voted to pass H.R. 1106, the Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009. Over the past four days, the Fighting For Our Homes Campaign produced almost 17,500 petition signatures and countless phone calls urging members to support this legislation.

As we now take the fight to the Senate, we are unveiling this new video and sending it to Senate staff to remind them why the playing field must be leveled for homeowners. Dan's story is one of greedy lenders abusing the trust of people who play by the rules and try to live the American Dream. Dan lost his house and he is the face of what we are trying to avoid. The Senate must quickly take up bankruptcy reform legislation and pass it.
