Where do I file my voucher for

the vacations I did not take,
the luxury extra cars I did not buy,
and the too large a house that I did not buy

all of which I did not purchase because I could not responsibly afford them.

The idea using my money to bail out those who acted irrresponsibly is enough to make me puke...hey, Barry, how about paying for my ulcer?

Correct. This needs to be sorted out once and for all. The fact that this issue remains gives it more credibility every day.

Post the birth certificate, or resign.

How about his college records being launched for public review. I bet he had a lot of anti American statements in his thesis just like his wife.

I have no problem helping out some citizens with mortgage problems that may ahve lost their job due to the economic hard times. However I have a major problem helping people that received subprime loans which means they couldn't afford them in the first place or were marginal at best. owning a home is not a right it is a priviledge just like driving a car.

The last thing I want to see is mortgage help for illegal immigrants. Yes people mortgages wre given to illegal immigrants because you don't have to prove you are a US citizen or at least a legal immigrant to get a mortgage in thic country.

I have a big problem with this issue. Up until the past year, the foreclosure issue was just that, about people who fell on bad times, job loss due to health issues or some other unfortunate experience. Help for those people never came and they deserved it more, yet they still lost everything!
Now suddenly the rules have changed and it's all about sympathy for the dumb moron who purchase a home that was not in his ball park to put it kindly.
Hell, some of these people didn't even have jobs, they were on gov't assistance or some other type of income but not by an actual job.
So here I am living within my means, paying my bills and not taking lavish vacations and not buying expensive ticket items like all my idiot neighbors and associates and yes even some friends and family. But I am supposed to fork over my hard earned cash to give them a leg up from the whole they dug themselves into? What kind of backward idiot existance have we all declined into?
It's so clear, bankrupt the middle class, the lower class is already hand to mouth, bring the white middle class down and send the upper end to the middle and make everybody equal, socialize the crap out of the whole country and beat a good man down until he feels guilty for his own success.

Couldn't agree more.
I do think though that this administration will also help out the ones that over extended themselves and never should have borrowed money. What about all the ones who's had to cut back on so many things, to be able to pay what they owe due to the fact that work is reducing their work hours.
Wher's Obama going to draw the line.

Obama loves propping up the losers and targeting the achievers.

It won't be long until the first moron comes on here and starts moaning, "It was all the big bad banks' fault!"

You're forgetting the 50 grand remodeled kitchen, the 80 grand master suite with master bath, the brick driveway with fancy design and its brickwalkway, the custom wrap-around porch with its old time feel, the build in pool and attached jacuzzi, the home theater room with reclining chairs and widescreen plasma with BOSE surround sound and least we forget the white privacy fence to protect the pool.

Obama's ACORN friends have already told the slugs they represent to "occupy" the foreclosed homes and not leave. Why refinance when you can stay for free?

Bottom line is that Obama is BUYING VOTES of the people he is giving money to WITH YOUR MONEY!!

Next step will be that anyone with a net worth over a certain amount must immediately write a check to the gov't to pay for all of his giveaways.

May be time to start withholding tax dollars...hey, if Obama's hand picked wizards don't pay taxes, why should I?

He may have even gone to college as a foreign student.... maybe even qualified for extra incentives because of his non-citizenship.
The word 'transparency' is completely meaningless to this Kenyan-born loser.
The American public has been sold out by the media.

I found a nice new Lamborghini, http://www.lamborghini.com/ , and I'm going to buy it. I flip burgers at burger king, making $6 an hour, and I'm going to stop making my mortgage payment casue I don't have to pay it any more. And that new fur coat for my wife looks good too.
