    Obama talks about new housing help for homeowners - Yahoo! Finance
    Awesome. My wife and I have been waiting for years to buy a house, and now interest rates are low, we have a 20% down payment, and we're pulling the trigger. We should have just gotten into a crappy sub-prime no money down ARM 10 years ago and then we'd be getting bailed out.


    Thanks for rewarding our patience! Maybe instead of rewarding people who made bad decisions you could incentive those who waited by offering up that first time home buyer credit again. That will make it easier for those with good credit to take homes off the hands of those who fucked up

    You're such a moron.

    If Obama had done nothing housing prices would be much lower by now. Not only would you have gotten a low interest rate anyway you would have been able to buy more house for your money.

    You are a simp and a half.

    But this way Obama gets to hammer the banks one more time. Voters love it when you hammer the banks.

    No it would not.
    We have spent an unprecedented amount of money and instituted an unprecedented amount of regulation and the result has been the weakest recovery on record.

    Keep fishing there, einstein.

    You want to buy a house ? NOW ?
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
    You're only in the middle of this circus act.
    Wait until all of the actors fall of the stage, then decide what to do.
    Hide the money and get ready to call these the good old daze.
