Housing Relief Bill on Senate Floor
On 'To the Point' -- Victoria McGrane from Politico.com talks about the Senate's bipartisan compromise on the housing crisis.
The Senate's bipartisan compromise on the housing crisis is up for debate. Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd says pressure from constituents is what forced the issue, and called today's debate a "major first step in the right direction." Home builders and mortgage companies are supporting the compromise, but consumer groups feel that "Capitol Hill has left them out on the curb." That's according to Victoria McGrane on the website Politico.com.
