And just to reiterate what Romney said about home forclosueres; read this piece from Think Progress: Romney Won’t Help 11.5 million Americans With UNDERWATER Mortgages, Advisor Says
Excerpt: Mitt Romney won’t offer “targeted relief for the 11.5 million American homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth,” Lanhee Chen, his campaign’s policy director, told Bloomberg’s Al Hunt. Chen described such policies as insufficient for stabilizing the housing market:
HUNT: There are, as you know, 11.5 million Americans with underwater mortgages. Will Governor Romney do anything to help them immediately, or is this something that the market just has to work out? [...]
CHEN: Governor Romney has indicated that there are some steps we ought to take to ensure that we’re growing our economy. But on the housing market specifically, I do think we have to resist the temptation for short-term approaches. And I think the President has fallen into that trap a little bit…. We have to do everything we can to get this economy going because ultimately that’s what’s going to get the housing market going again. * Watch it (at 6:00)*
THIS IS WHO ROMNEY IS, FOLKS.
