I see more new homes going up and that's a good sign for the economy - assuming that people can buy them and get financing to pay for them. If they're just going to give them to the 47% - not such a good sign.

One of our neighbors sells real estate. He says 2/3 of their sales these days are with loans from FHA.

I sure hope Batch doesn't read that! LOL
