According to DS News today, three congressmen have proposed a bill to end the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) program. One of the congressmen, Darrell Issa is the chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Rep. Jim Jordan says, "HAMP is a colossal failure. In many cases, it has hurt the very people it promised to help. It's one more example of why government interference in the private sector doesn't work and that's why it should be repealed."
Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general of TARP, recently released a report to Congress saying that the program "continues to fall dramatically short of any meaningful standard of success," calling the half million plus number of permanent modifications "anemic".
Rep. Patrick McHenry who cahirs the Oversight subcommittee on TARP says "The number of homeowners kicked out of HAMP - and arguably left worse off by participating in the program- exceeds the number actually helped by hundreds of thousands," he said. "Because the administration won't listen to bipartisan calls to fix this program, the only option left is to end it."
