WASHINGTON, DC - Feb. 28: Sen. Thomas R. Carper, D-Del., Senate GOP Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., talk before a news conference on the GOP housing bill alternative -- which Carper did not attend. Senate Democrats were unlikely to muster enough votes Thursday to advance a mortgage package, with Republicans expected to side with the White House and the lending industry in opposing controversial bankruptcy law changes. The Senate was expected to fall short of the 60 votes needed to invoke cloture on a motion to proceed to consideration of a bill (HR 3221) that will be the vehicle for the mortgage legislation (S 2636).
