    Most of these bankrupt companies are alive and well.Bankruptcy was a way of gettings out of their obligation to the workers they lied to and helped poison.This bill would have Cheney’s company[Haliburton] get out of 90% of its obligation Too bad Dick.

    So, Carl Parks is “very disappointed” that…”Senators blocked a good faith effort to implement asbestos litigation reform”.
    Pehaps Mr. Parks should compare his disappointment to the pain and grief I endure each day since losing my father to mesothelioma. I think he’d think twice about his remarks if he ever had to face the terrors this disease has caused. It is cruel and irresponsible to deny these victims and their families the right to their day to be heard in America’s courts and a jury’s decision to what is fair compensation

    The Democrats can take responsibility for the high unemployment rate this election which will only get worse now as more companies go bankrupt and/or are unable to grow and provide more jobs. Way to go Democrats – more people to provide welfare money to!

    This is not a “party issue”, but a human one. Most of the people murdered by asbestos were working class, and HAD to go to work each day, and coincedentally, breathe at the same time.
