How law can help us ordinary folk…but won’t

This item got very little mention outside of the New York Times. I guess it was buried under the Wall Street protest (which does have a major message) and under the helicopter that went down in the East River.

Somebody should emphasize it. Because it’s an example of what legislation can do to help peopleā€”if only we had a legislative majority that grasped its Constitutional role during crises.

The President does understand, which is why he brought this up. If only we had a House majority that understood its role, instead of singing in the aisles, “I won’t help! Don’t ask me!”
