Excellent idea. Anything to help those keep their homes due to reasons beyond their control: Loss of Job, Medical issues, reduction in income, I'm for.
Banks shouldn't be able to force someone out that easily. I'm glad Northampton County wants to assist home owners and banks work out what can be a horrible experience.

Your proposal sounds like the one proposed by U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch MCConnell of Kentucky that drew praised from Independent newsman Lou Dobbs last night on his CNN "Lou Dobbs Tonight" show, which airs at 7:00 PM.
In that same broadcast, Lou was stunned to learn from Ed Henry, Jessica Yellin, or Dana Bash - all three CNN correspondents covering the White House and Congress in Washinton, D.C.-(or maybe Lou learned it from his show's last night's guest, economist David Cay Johnson) that the plan proposed by Northampton Count President Barack Obama would present to Congress "later" in the form of new legislation and only after the President and Congress the nearly $1 trillion so-called "stimulus" legislation currently being debated.
President Obama describes the differences between the two major parties as "moderate," when, in fact, the two parities are obviously still far apart.

I beg your pardon. I care what Alan Jennings thinks about the home foreclosures, and I don't always agree with Jennings. Nor do I always agree with Northampton County Court of Common Pleas judges, or with the county's administration and council, but I do agree with the judges, Court Administrator James Onembo, and the county's prothonotary Court that the hemorrhaging foreclosure of homes and small businesses in Northampton County must be spared certain death from imminent, massive "bleed out" if not blanched.
Next door in Lehigh County, which was cared out of Northampton more than a century ago - on doubt under a King's Bench authority ruling, its Executive Don Cunningham has doomed his 2010 gubernatorial changes by supporting President Barack Obama's and Pennsylvania's junior U.S. Senator Bob Casey's support of Obama's and the U.S. Senate's $885 billion "stimulus" package NOW with a home owner and small business relief bill tacked on later as a separate legislative bill. In other words, the Democrats are still holding foreclusure relief hostage to first passing the $885 "stimulus" bill. This is the same thing we've been told since passage of first $700 billion "stimulus" bill first passed in November of last year, the last year of the George W. Bush lame-duck presidency.
