Well it seems like the idiots finally reached a deal. Socialism is here. I was in favor of just letting the chips fall where they will. But I have a question. Below is a provision in the bill: The summary issued by Ms. Pelosi’s office said the legislation will include provisions giving Treasury the ability to work with cash-strapped homeowners whose mortgages are purchased by the federal government to refinance into a more affordable mortgage. Other foreclosure-prevention measures included in the agreement are an extension of the tax holiday for homeowners who face foreclosure, as well as a tax break for community banks who held shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The rescue plan will allow affected banks to take an immediate tax deduction on losses from investments in the two firms, which were taken over by the federal government earlier this month. Now my question. If you rent a house, pay your monthly payments faithfully and on time, and your lease is up your landlord can decide for whatever reason not to renew your lease, you will have to find another domicile. Now you have another individual who gets a sub-prime mortgage, puts nothing down, falls behind on the payments, gets forclosed on and the government steps in to help. What is the difference between these two people and why does one get preferential treatment? Cant these people just rent like many other people do who made the right decision?
