so it's good to see that the federal government is finally getting around to tackling the mortgage crises, and helping out those who desperately need it. the poor, impoverished homebuilder. http://money.cnn.com/2008/04/02/news/economy/housing_bipartisan_draft/?postversion=2008040322 WTF?? $100m for consulting homeowners on their (lack of) options, but $6 BILLION handed to home builders who made buckets of money in the last 7 years building way too many homes and now are having financial difficulties? And through the entire bill, the aspect that has the affects the greatest number of people is a $1000 property tax deduction for people who don't itemize. Wait a sec, people with mortgages itemize because of the mortgage interest. So this'll only help homeowners with no mortgages. Yup, those are definitely the people who need rescuing, as opposed to people who actually *HAVE* mortgage payments each month.
