How About a Rent Ban Comrade?

So the foreclosure ban craze is going national. Comrade Dodd is proposing a ban on foreclosures for 90 days.

So my question is why don't renters deserve the same sort of relief? I mean sure it does take a while to get kicked out of a rented house but seriously, if we are the ones who are going to pay for those homeowners to stay in their homes, then the least they can do is give us a break as well.

I wonder - has their ever been a society who has canonized the stupid, the crooked and the irresponsible at the cost of the productive? I suppose we might be playing out Animal Farm, to keep the Orwell theme going.

Those with equity in their homes and those who rent are just a little less equal then those who are underwater with their mortgages.
