In a bygone era, the federal government enacted Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Federal Housing Administration, and other programs designed to give ordinary Americans financial assistance.  Even today, some people (most notably President Obama) still share that vision.

But, the first phase involved in helping someone is often sympathy with that person’s situation.  During the recent recession, the net worth of Congressmen rose 5%, while net worth fell 39% for the rest of us.

It doesn’t take a psychic to see that members of Congress will soon lose touch with ordinary Americans.  Some would say (most notably Governor Romney) that transition has already taken place.

If you are a banker in need of a bailout, call your congressman.  If you are a homeowner in need of financial relief, don’t bother.  Call or email the law office of Henley and Henley for your free bankruptcy consultation.  Bankruptcy can save your home.  Take action today.
