FHA loans are 3 to 5 percent down.
How can a loan be a bad loan?
The bank raises the payments so it is impossible
to pay it back.(Balloon)
Fixed rate only. The payments go up
with the rise in taxes and insurance only.
They were called NO DOC loans. You didn't need a damn thing to get a loan, just sign your name.

When 6K is actually only 1K
"A Long Beach hospital charged Jo Ann Snyder $6,707 for a CT scan of her abdomen and pelvis after colon surgery. But because she had health insurance with Blue Shield of California, her share was much less:$2,336.
Then Snyder tripped across one of the little-known secrets of healthcare: If she hadn't used her insurance, her bill would have been even lower, just $1,054."
or...
"Los Alamitos Medical Center, for instance, lists a CT scan of the abdomen on a state website for $4,423. Blue Shield says its negotiated rate at the hospital is about $2,400.
When The Times called for a cash price, the hospital said it was $250..."

Yeah, less scandals, less money taken out of our checks, less confusion about Obamacare, less costs paying for Obamacare, less fear and uncertainty about our health care, less concern about the government becoming Big Brother, less poverty, less unemployment, less pretending like the opposition doesn't exist, less power grabbing.

Yes, we would have less than what we have now.

So thanks a lot.

Good guess. Especially since even Romney didn't know what he was saying......

... and the Ryan blueprint for funds has taken a beating.

Clearly reality is hitting cons now.

Hey, Barney Frank: The Government Did Cause the Housing Crisis

Peter WallisonDec 13 2011, 11:20 AM ET

Congressman Frank, of course, blamed the financial crisis on the failure adequately to regulate the banks. In this, he is following the traditional Washington practice of blaming others for his own mistakes. For most of his career, Barney Frank was the principal advocate in Congress for using the government's authority to force lower underwriting standards in the business of housing finance. Although he claims to have tried to reverse course as early as 2003, that was the year he made the oft-quoted remark, "I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation toward subsidized housing." Rather than reversing course, he was pressing on when others were beginning to have doubts.

No I did, it was you that said that all banks had to comply with the Community Reinvestment Act and I told you only FDIC Banks had to comply.

You can't.
And no, you did not have to be federally insured to not comply with CRA. There is also a capital thresh hold. And then only if an institution wishes to go into other merger and financial endeavours that GLB opened up.
Geez son. You really need to get away from the conservative talking points and blaming non cons for the financial problems.
and now you are back pedaling and you didnt make the point which it was me that knew non FDIC banks did not have to comply with Community Reinvestment Act.

<quoted text>I agree Reagan would be labeled a RINO today too but the problem I see with the Tea Party is they are just so disorganized right now on their issues because I seen some from the Tea Party faction that I feel are closer to the Left politically and I agree there is a faction that is really far to the Extreme Right politically and McCain & GW Bush wouldnt fit in either.
Many Republican senators have tea party opposition in primary which may further destroy the republicans.
G H W Bush a RINO
