Obama's Housing Plan: Government To Maintain Significant Role In Mortgages

Obama's Housing Plan: Government To Maintain Significant Role In Mortgages

Commented Aug 6, 2013 at 02:24:22 in Politics

“Investors are buying up our property, our homes are being bought in cash by foreigners. This is not a healthy real estate cycle for everyday, American people whose salaries have not gone up, but the cost of living has sky rocketed. The realtors are all excited, bidding wars, offers in cash, prices going up, but where does that leave our kids, our non existent middle class?
Obama has no idea how to fix the housing market, he has done nothing in 5 years but watch the banksters make billions of money and continue to foreclose on homeowners, refuse to modify their loans, hand over fraudulent documents, and basically do whatever they want that is blatantly against the law and get away with it. Amazing, and they are making huge salaries and huge bonuses and rip people off at the bank too!”

“Great idea! If a bank initially lends the money for the mortgage then that mortgage stays in their portfolio. If investors want to invest in RBMS, they can, but like any other investment, it can go up in value and it can go down in value, no one is going to cover your bets or bail you out because you decided to invest in mortgages rather than tech stocks.”

“There is nothing you can do, the investors are in the drivers seat unless you can prove the bank has given you fraudulent documents, a Robo signed note or Assignments that were not properly transferred within a stated time frame. If you have those types of documents then basically you have no valid investors.Join Anti Foreclosure Network, well worth the dues, follow their advice and you have to hire an attorney. If the Assignments were not transferred on time, then your loan was not legally transferred into a RMBS Trust and the investor is stuck with a bad mortgage.”

“As a stockholder you should know that the banks have full insurance on the homes that they foreclosure on and the banks lose nothing, in fact they make money.”

“It is only ever about the black students, not the Chinese, Vietnamese, Pacific Islanders, or children from India or Hispanics, just the black students who can't seem to get ahead in life because they have encountered a few bad teachers. At that very same school, how did other races do? How was the attendance of the black students? Did the black students take advantage of the free after school tutoring programs or free reading programs at the library?
Did their parents check to see if their homework was done, when reports were due and finals?
Did the students stay during breaks to complete their work or to get help? It has been my experience that they don't, but they sure like to complain.”

“Typical statement, they were UNAWARE; they must live in an area without electricity, and no access to news. This is the business that they are in, the experts, and yet they play dumb. That is really scary; their salaries should be revoked and they should be fired on the spot. They are clueless and they admit it. They have allowed the servicers, the biggest criminals of all, to pull the wool over their heads? Ignore all consumer complaints, foreclose as fast as they can, making money upon money during this process and you never once reviewed their paperwork! That was your job, oversight was your job, you are pathetic. Return your salaries to the people who lost their homes.”

“Wells Fargo is the worst, they are out and out criminals. In California we have the California Homeowners Bill which took effect in January 2013. Wells Fargo completely ignores this law, continues with its practice of duel tracking, submitting false documents, documents that are Robo-signed; they simply do not care. They force the homeowner, who is already having financial difficulties, to take them to court, while they rake in the money.
They all need to be prosecuted and sent to Alcatraz for the rest of their lives!
Wells Fargo has been paid, if your mortgage has been secularized and sold into a trust. It is the investors who do not get paid and they take a risk when they invest in those kinds of investments. If the Bank forecloses, they get the insurance money as well as the money for the home when it is sold at auction. The Bank does not lose one penny, they make money, which is why they want to foreclose not do loan modifications. Plus the taxpayers gave them money. They are sitting pretty, not lending money, and giving out huge salaries and bonuses. If you bank at one of these large banks you are supporting their criminal activities.”

I am currently in the same boat you were in about a year ago with Wells Fargo not being able to use any Keep Your Home California assistance. (I saw one of your posts from May 27, 2012).

“You are correct! He is simply asking questions, trying to find answers to a very difficult problem. There are so many underlining issues that need to be studied, background checks, mental health, violence in our movies, on TV, on Video games and on the Internet, they all play a role in today's society value system, or lack of one.
Guns have been part of our society since our nation was created. So what has changed? Our family structure, lack of values, morals and virtues, less children going to church, lack of respect, our banks and politicians are not the moral leaders of this country, a very high percentage of them are cheaters, criminals, liars and suffer no consequences. This is what we teach our children. This is our society. Guns are not the problem, society is the problem.”

“This article is absurd; the Dream Act only allows a very specific group of young people to stay in this country, it does not allow that groups parents, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, etc, who are here illegally, working here illegally, entered the country illegally, therefore breaking our laws, to stay.
There are many people from many different countries who are waiting to legally enter this country and become citizens.. Why do we allow cheaters to get in ahead of the group that are following our laws? People that enter this country illegally understand the consequences, they will be deported if caught, their wife cannot automatically join them, or their children, at any time, they all could be deported and they should be because that is the law. This country needs to start following its laws, people need to understand real life consequences. This is the United States of America, we speak English here, at our public schools, we teach in English. We are a proud nation and anyone should be proud to be an American. If you do not like our immigration policies, please apply elsewhere.”

“But that's the rub, at first the Dream Act is "for the children (although it goes up to the age of 30)", then they will want to extend some kind of chain migration from the Dream Act.

Don't think for one minute, that illegal aliens will stop even if the Dream Act was passed, which it never will be.”

“The banks never received any real consequences, so why change? They still are in charge and will continue to do what's best for them, to hell with the American people and our country. Profits and greed come first and the President allows this to happen and continue.
Examples need to be set, consequences for ones action need to be applied otherwise we become a nation/society of no rules, values, morals, ethics or virtues. That is what you are teaching are younger generation. Look at all the suicides as a result of foreclosures, banks do not care; yet they caused the bubble.”

“We are all trying to avoid using the cable companies because they are so corrupt.

The whole set up is rigged and now they want to charge you by how much data you use? At times my Internet is so slow and I pay for the fastest, so I would be charged for their slow connection while I am trying to get my work done?

“I value the opinions of teachers over people who are constantly try to push new programs, new concepts which costs our schools so much money to implement in terms or training, books only to find out that these new programs no not work. Schools have warehouses of books and programs, nearly new, that are not being used, paid for but not being used. Some sales person has sold it and their concept to the Dept of Ed has bought it, hook, line and sinker. They bought computers before teachers were trained, software before training, or they did not provide training for equipment provided, or training for equipment the teachers do not have. They waste so much money. There should be state wide buying agencies for books and supplies, but no, we but at Staples or Office Max; stupid.”

“They still don't get it, we have to cut spending. The first thing the President does is give raises? When we have no money and we are suppose to be cutting the budget. Tell me how that makes any financial sense at all? Does he understand how a budget works? You do not give raises when you do not have the income to cover those raises.
I would cut the Department of Education, what a waste. Public Education was better off without it, they just spend money and dictate failed policies one right after the other. None of them have ever taught school, been in the trenches, haven't a clue what is really going on, total waste of taxpayers money.”

First of all, they do not have the skills necessary for the job, they have not accomplished anything, they lack respect, communication skills, ethics, listening skills, morals, complete understanding of the Constitution, good will, hard work, values, and they have forgotten who they work for and the value of compromise. They will not stimulate our ecomony or add more jobs, they already get their very own special elitist Health Insurance, and now they get a pay raise for doing nothing? Most of us have not seen a pay raise in years, we have seen our food cost rise, utilities, gas, rent go up, families being forced out of their homes. The President promised to help the Middle Class, but what does he do? He gives raises to cronies, adds to the debt, and we suck again.”
