From today's Associated Press:
The Republican-controlled Senate refused to limit consumer interest rates at 30 percent yesterday as it moved methodically toward passage of legislation making it harder to shed personal debts in bankruptcy.

The vote was a bipartisan 74-24 to scuttle an akmendment by Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., who said consumers must pay interest rates as high as 1,059 percent when they borrow money.
This isn't a tough issue. Taking a stand against predatory bankers and modern-day loan sharks who fleece billions of dollars from hard-on-their-luck consumers should be a no-brainer, unless you're completely in the pocket of corporate America. Which I guess is the problem.
