Obama to offer more taxpayer subsidies to keep houses overpriced

I wonder how renters feel about their taxes being used to keep house prices out of their reach.

The Obama administration plans to set up an emergency loan program for the unemployed and a government refinancing effort in the next few weeks to help homeowners pay their mortgages after home sales dropped in July, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan said.

“The July numbers were worse than we expected, worse than the general market expected, and we are concerned,” Donovan said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “That’s why we are taking additional steps to move forward.”

The administration will begin a Federal Housing Authority refinancing effort to help borrowers who are struggling to pay their home mortgages, and will start an emergency homeowners’ loan program for unemployed borrowers so they can stay in their homes, Donovan said.

And they even want to bring back the disastrous $8000 tax credit which was a giant waste of money that only pulled demand forward a few months.
Donovan said on CNN today that it is too soon to say whether the administration’s $8,000 first-time homebuyer credit tax credit, which expired April 30, will be revived.

I'LL TELL YOU HOW RENTERS FEEL, FU OBAMA! You will fail because you ally (no realation to Ally Bank) yourself with losers, and reward them. In the end you will defeat those who work hard and succeed and generate wealth only to be left with a country of losers. Ask Premier Gorbachev how that felt.

It's odd but I'm glad if I lost my job, I wouldn't be able to live in my house for years without paying a dime because that would be a sickening society. Homeowners that default and then turn to the government teet SUCK!
