The Answer:

The brake leads are wired wrong.  The leads from each brake are tied together.  One wire from each brake should be switched on the blue wire nuts.  In other words, one wire from each brake should go to the top blue wire nut and the other wire from each brake should go to the bottom blue wire nut.
