"Democrat Harry Reid Calls for Foreclosure Moratorium"
"Democrat Nancy Pelosi Calls for Investigations of Foreclosure Fraud"
"Democrat Ohio Attorney General Attacks Foreclosure Fraud, Sues GMAC"
"Democrat Illinois Attorney General Asks for Foreclosure Halt in Illinois"
"Democrat Maxine Waters Calls for a Foreclosure Freeze"
"Democrats Alan Grayson, Barney Frank, and Corrine Brown Call for Fannie to Stop Working with Foreclosure 'Mills' Being Investigated for Fraud"
"Democrat Earl Blumenaur Asks for a Foreclosure Freeze in Oregon"
