Just a Reminder: First-Time Homebuyer Credit Ends Today (Hope You Got Yours)
Today was the final day to take advantage of Obama's first-time homebuyer credit (read: please, PLEASE go out and buy a house) if you were not aware. My Going Concern colleague and fellow accounting nerd Joe Kristan summed up its "success" perfectly:

Supposedly this means the sort of people who have been buying houses will continue buying houses but unlike Fed QE programs, when it's over, it's actually over. Or so I am guessing. Hoo-rah, what can we subsidize next? Plastic surgery? Kevlar armor? Shoes? Come on, Obama, let's stimulate this motherf^%$er or go home.
