A Renewed Crackdown on Redlining - BusinessWeek Read the whole thing. Behind all the flowery language of Obama being concerned that "disadvantaged people" don't have access to credit, is cold hard fact that means he wants more subprime loans. THIS IS WHAT CRASHED THE ECONOMY IN 2008! I think the comments section of this article say it best. This crap about "helping the disadvantaged" has not fooled the readers of the article: And it goes on and on and on. 406 comments and most were EXTREMELY NEGATIVE to the idea. What we have here is Obama trying to deliberately TANK the Economy while paying out goodies to the voters he hopes will keep him in office. 2012 can't come soon enough!
