I think Rick Santelli struck a nerve when he made a comment that 92 percent of the homeowners who make their payments on time don't really want to pay for the ones who didn't. His comment was very accurate as far as I'm concerned, but the response by the white house is really scary. It seems like they want to control what reporters say.
Look back in history at other countries who have done this. Sometimes it's the beginning of something really ugly.
