    Obama didn't appoint Paulson, a Republican did.

    But that is off track. What did you think of the article from England and what it said?

    Bull Pippy! The cause is NOT failing house prices. House prices are failing because the banks made bad loans. If I make a bad deal will you all bail me out?

    I hope everyone understands that this bailout means, essentially, that the government will own all those mortgages.

    Who needs eminent domain when you already own the property?

    Same as Joseph ending up owing Egypt.

    You all can count on property taxes increasing when the govt takes the repo'd houses off the county tax rolls.

    I think technically that house prices are falling because banks won't make more bad loans. Or more precisely that people are no longer willing to pay what the current owners paid.

    Bad loans don't affect housing pricing. They only affect the ability of current owners to make their payments.
