BTW, libs believe that people can't be trusted with personal responsibility.

Big-time psychological projection in my opinion.

My remark was sarcastic, chief- it's what a dopey lib would say. I'm with you 100%.
Sorry. My misinterpretation of the conversation.

And I agree. Libbies cannot trust anyone with personal responsibility. It makes folks independent vice dependent.

Not talking about subprime loans. The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 forced banks to lower the requirements by which people could qualify to get a home loan. In other words, the banks were forced to give home loans to people even though they might not be able to repay it. When I bought my first house in 1995, I qualified for MUCH more house than I could ever possibly afford.
No it didn't. If that were true, the financial crisis would have occurred long before it actually did.

CRA effectively said banks couldn't do business in a given community if all they did was take in money to loan out to other communities... what they considered better risk areas. No one lowered the standards.

When GLB passed and Glass-Stegall was repealed, part of what gave banks, insurance and financial companies to "merge" was the need to enforce CRA and for banks to prove they weren't discriminating against people.

Not all banks were or are required to follow CRA. Banks under a certain capitalization or banks that had no desire to merge or grow were not required to follow CRA guidelines.

And again, there was no requirement to make any loans.

If you were lucky to get your house and keep it, good for you. Where I have a problem is when people say it's the BUYER'S fault for taking on a loan bigger than they can afford.

I blame realtors and mortgage brokers for making people BELIEVE they could afford more. Their job is to sell. And sell they did.

<quoted text>Correct! When I purchased my 1st home in 1988 I qualified for someing 3 times what I could afford. That debt to income ration would have been nearly 60% which is insanity!! Even my realtor pushed for the higher priced homes. Why? 6% commissions. A motivation brought on by the "caring" federal government.
There is what is called the law of consequences.
This law will play out again for a raise in minimum wage that liberals just don't understand because they don't understand business or economics.
lol! There is/was not federal law that "lowered" qualifications son.

Businesses did that in their rush and greed to make money.

No, because tax cuts will not work provided you are attacking businesses that create jobs. Kasich didn't do that. He passed tax cuts and promoted a job friendly environment.
Let's look at the industries DumBama or his minions attacked during his first term:
Oil companies in the Gulf.
Businesses related (restaurants and hotels) to the Gulf.
Gibson Guitars.
Suntan Salons.
American Indians who sold tobacco products via US Mail.
Roll Your Own cigarette shops which he put completely out of business.
Health insurance companies.
ATM guidelines.
Banks that issue credit cards.
Manufacturers of medical equipment.
Coal Burning power plants.
The trucking industry.
Commie Care that effects all employers who have more than 50 employees.
HTF can you expect people to invest in their industry when you have a so-called President who is targeting all these industries? A tax cut??? Be serious. Giving tax credits for employers to hire people they don't have work for????
This guy is a total incompetent.
None of which is based in reality - yemoron!

A GOPer’s logic:
John Kerry, served in Vietnam, was wounded three times, received 3 purple hearts, a bronze star and a silver star – he is labeled a “traitor”!

Ted Nugent, a loudmouth rocker, crapped in his pants to avoid military service but sleeps with an AR-15 next to his bed, verbally threatened the president’s life – he is labeled a “patriot”!

And yes, they want to govern the United States of America ... any questions?

I wholeheartedly DISAGREE. Just like when you by a car. Is it the salesman's fault if YOU buy a lemon?? Nope. No one held a gun to your head and forced you to buy it. The buyer should have had a mechanic look at the car prior to handing over the money/signing on the bottom line. Your own ignorance is YOUR problem, not theirs. If you go into a home buying deal without knowing how much house you can afford, it is NOT the sellers fault if you sign on the bottom line to a house you can't afford. It's yours. Plain and simple.

The answer to the big question was that intelligent voters said no to Mitt (47 percenter) ROmney and the backward thinking republicants.

Nonsense; personal responsibility. If you are too dumb to not be able to figure out what you can "afford" comfortably then it IS your fault.
