Sounds like a lot, but it's just a little drop in the bucket. Only 3.5 million people may receive between $200-$1000, with maybe a few with larger amounts of up to $125,000. Most of it will be taken by the lawyers.Banks are now paying 8.5 billion to settle with thousands of homeowners they wrongfully foreclosed on.
So it wasn't Democrats "forcing banks" to make bad loans afterall.
Instead if forcing the banks to rewrite those loans and keep those people in their homes paying their mortgages, they have thrown them out, taken the homes back, and will throw a few bucks their way
