In all the bailout plans democrats in particular are trying to talk up keeping people in their houses. This is a prescription for prolonging the pain. The reason we’re having a financial crisis is nonperforming assets. To translate that "people who are not paying their mortgages". It is only when the assets are in the hands of responsible owners that they will be performing again!
On an additional note anytime an operator says tries to put the rush on a move you need to watch out for the Ponzi for the scheme is failing and they need to fund out previous marks.
