  • Hurrah it looks like Obama will continue to pile on tax payer obligations and get nothing in return, except more debt. AGAIN!

  • We need someone to get involved in housing that really understands the individual markets and puts policies in place by market. One size does not fit all and helicopter money will blow away in the wind. They also need to work with the people in each market to understand the issues rather than looking at spreadsheets and graphs in DC.

  • Exactly - they're the ones who voted for him last time (along w/a lot of foolish "moderates" and "independents" who bought into his BS) - let's hope they're the ONLY ones who do so this next time around. Surely there aren't enough poor people (yet) to get him re-elected?
