Anti-Predatory Lending Act: Jack Kington voted Nay

On November 2007, 291 members of the U.S. House voted for H.R. 3915: Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act of 2007. All of Georgia's Democratic representatives voted Yea; all Ga. Republican representatives voted Nay, including Jack Kingston.

If we had that law, the country wouldn't be in quite such an economic mess now, but Dec 3, 2007: Received in the Senate and Read twice and referred to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. Senate Republicans never let it be voted on.

All the testimony from the House hearings is available online.

We need Bill Gillespie in the House for GA-01 and Jim Martin in the Senate for Georgia.
