Should these guys/gals be held accountable for the colapse in the housing market, by the manipulation of loans, and the rules that made this fiasco possible?? I don't see why the public has to pay, and be negatively effected by the mortgage scandals... It was not done in the best interest of the public, but for the enrichment of the players who stacked the deck. Make them pay, and pay hard.. Carelessness and greed should not be rewarded.. These MONEY men are "professionals", so, they should be held accountable to much higher standards. Now, do I feel bad for the dopes who bought homes, expensive homes, who couldn't afford them to begin with? Hell no!!! They are at fault too.. If they didn't understand the small print, then they shouldn't have entered the contract. Their lawyers who ok'ed the deals should be disbarred as well.. Inflated property taxes don't come back down easy. In the mean time,, WORKING MEN, and WORKING WOMEN, who do try to live within their means are being hit from multiple angles. The REASONABLE working class should not be bled of their savings in order to bail out the rich and stupid.
