Will this not effect as much as foreclosures and short sales the further decline of real estate prices?
Forget what the government thinks, give that stimulus money that hasn't been given to take over industries to homeowners who could make their payments, stay in their homes, and as such maintain stability in our economy.
The government fails to understand that we are a country of capitalist who want to (1 comments)
