The definition of Chutzpah... I've generally stayed out of the fight over the bankruptcy bill, but opponents aren't going to gain any headway if their arguments focus on the idea that credit card companies give credits to dead people, dogs, and people who shouldn't have credit cards"... It's one thing to play the sympathy card for the good guy/gal, who through extraordinary events, found themselves unable to pay. It's a bad, bad, bad idea to focus on the people who are gaming the system - those who use the cards sent to dogs, former occupants and dead people. We'll laugh at the credit card offers that come for the family dog - but we have no sympathy for the crook who uses them.
