Responsible, middle-class families have been devastated by the unethical and abusive practices of the Big Banks throughout the mortgage crisis. Countless tragedies lie in the wake of their greed and recklessness, but the story of Norman and Oriane Rousseau of Newbury Park, CA stands out above the rest. It's the saddest, most upsetting story we've yet come across, and only the words of Oriane can do it justice. Please watch the video below.
There is no good reason to delay the vote further, but the lobbyists for the Big Banks are pushing relentlessly for just that.
Our fight to pass the Homeowner Bill of Rights and end the vast majority of these abuses hangs in the balance. Next week, a special conference committee is scheduled to vote on the bill, and if it passes, it will immediately proceed to a floor vote in both houses of the Legislature.
The only way we can force a vote on a good bill -- one that guarantees that homeowners can defend their homes in court if banks break the law -- is by showing Sacramento that the public demands this bill pass. Join with ACCE and our partners at the Courage Campaign to make that happen.
