Everyone deserves a home.

Are you taking note Chris Dodd & Barney's Frank, This is the way things should be, not giving finance to people who never had the means or intentions of paying back mortgages from Fanny Mae or Freddy Mac.

Sounds like a wise idea if it means that they won't be paying rent, can live relatively comfortable, and all while saving their money to build a nice home.

It sure the heck beats being in debt up the wazoo or getting problematic financing like that which contributed to the housing bubble & foreclosures.
