Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) is the longest-serving Democratic congresswoman in U.S. history. Her district, stretching along the shore of Lake Erie from west of Cleveland to Toledo, faces an epidemic of home foreclosures and high unemployment. This "Ohio Heartland" region, AKA the Rust Belt, had its heart torn out by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and is now burdened with shuttered factories, struggling farms, empty homes, and high foreclosure rates. In JANUARY 2009 (3 years ago!) Marcy recommended a solution to stop the FRAUDclosures... from the U.S. Congress floor, she said:
"I say to the American people, you be squatters in your own homes. Don't you leave"

February 2009 Kaptur:*
"Therefore, stay in your property. Get proper legal representation ... [if] Wall Street cannot produce the deed nor the mortgage audit trail ... you should stay in your home. It is your castle. It's more than a piece of property. ... Most people don't even think about getting representation, because they get a piece of paper from the bank, and they go, 'Oh, it's the bank,' and they become fearful, rather than saying: 'This is contract law. The mortgage is a contract. I am one party. There is another party. What are my legal rights under the law as a property owner?' "If you look at the bad paper, if you look at where there's trouble, 95 to 98 percent of the paper really has moved to five institutions: JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wachovia, Citigroup and HSBC. They have this country held by the neck."
