President Bush, Sen. Frist and the Republicans are pushing a class action bill to limit the ability of consumers to have their day in court. Bush will talk about it next week during his state of the union address, the bill will be voted on Feb. 3 in Senate Judiciary Committee without even a hearing on it, and an opportunity for consumers to testify, and then it is scheduled to be the first bill voted on in the Senate on Feb. 7. Consumers will have a much harder time suing large, out of state corporations under this bill because the Republicans are shutting off the state courts and insisting that all consumer class action cases go to federal court where the judges are much more industry friendly.Also, Mandy Moore is another actress that can sing or is it vice versa? Oh, well. She's better than Hilary Duff and Ashlee Simpson.
