If a person doesn't have enough income to house themselves, giving them a home just means that home will deteriorate because they don't have any money to maintain the upkeep on that home[/quote]
True...so givem jobs keeping up the foreclosed homes...TEACH them how.

This is the trap they want you in. Stop fearing, be calm cool and collect, and we can get out of this. Otherwise we can do it over and over and over.
but wait, Letterman told a bad joke. STOP THE PRESSES!
Very true. Look at 9/11 and the Bush regime.
[quote who="kenwas" reply="24" id="2256920"]Here is another important key fact, we didn't get to where we are today overnight, to correct our collective problems will also not happen overnight. In a way that's okay, gives us a little time to make sure we are making the right corrections or 'changes' to get back to the basics
Unfortunately, we are daily flooded with the next "must do emergency" with the main goal so that no one has time to count for accountability.
The emergency stimulus had to be rushed through so that "unemployment would not go over 8%" Hmmmm, how did that work out?
We had to sign the Bank and TARP bills so that the banks could get the "toxic" assets off the books. In case you haven't noticed, they still have them and the program has been a bust.
The Home Mortgage act would freexe and start to reverse foreclosure through refinanacing etc. Today, 12715 homes have been refinanced through this program and the May foreclose rate was at all al time high. Hmmmmm, not working to well.
But skip all that, we have to get the health care through in a real rush to save trillions! Hurry, hurry hurry, act now, don't delay!
Agreed. How about give them 6 months to a solution, and if none reached, they have to return their salaries? What I hate the most about the Health Care thing is that everything is being laid at the Doctor's doorstep. We're guilty. B.S.
Take a look at Insurance Co. CEO's, Pharmaceutical Co. CEO's, Hospital Administrator, Politician, etc salaries over the past 10-20 years. You'll understand who's getting the bucks. It ain't the Doctors.
But, if you think we are, and if you think the most highly regulated Professionals in the USA are getting anything but grief and blame, you're wrong. Hey...I'm ok with free markets, which isn't what's happening for the Doctors.
If you're tired of the crap your Insurance Co. is handing you, remember: That's stockholder driven medical care. You don't like it? Neither do I. DO something about it.
