RECENT VOTES

Housing

On Tuesday, March 29, 2011 the House considered H.R. 839: the HAMP Termination Act. This legislation ends the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), which helps struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure by modifying their mortgages and is the fourth housing program eliminated by the House this year. More than 600,000 families have been able to stay in their homes because of this program. Once again, rather than proposing an alternative bill or suggesting changes to the existing program, the Republican-led House simply voted to eliminate it. I spoke on the floor about this legislation, which you can view here. I voted NO. H.R. 839 passed and the entire vote is recorded below.
