The banks have a trillion dollars of the house's money to play with. Forgive me if I'm not quite sympathetic enough to them. And I bet the banks had some knock-out Christmas parties a couple of weeks ago.

Isn't it nice to see the banks HAPPY about taking back is the attitude like this that people should understand the lenders have when it come to residences as well. People need to understand that the banks don't care so long as the goverment is willing to give them a blank check to solve all their problems. For every family that gets help keeping their home, there are 1000 more that lose it everyday and devalue a community or neighborhood.

why the taxpayer is not bailing these guys out? Our current 8.5 trillion liabilities for this mess are bigger than all the money spent on all U.S wars (1776,1812,civil war, wwI,wwII,korea,vietnam,iraq) combined in 2008 inflation adjusted dollars. Tax payers are getting shafted and they don't even know it.
