In Congress this week: predatory lending, Wall St reform

Several items of interest on the Hill this week:

-We've recently discussed the (fortunately, failed) plan to delay protections for military personnel against predatory lending. Well, the fight isn't over — a bill to block the protections has been introduced in the House. Huffington Post has the story.

-Also troubling: a discussion draft of a bill to gut Dodd-Frank reforms of Wall St. practices. Read about that one here.

-More promising, a bipartisan bill was introduced in the Senate this week to prevent the need for future bailouts and regulate such bailouts. Read about that here.
