More than 2 million Americans are facing foreclosure for all the reasons above, and probably a thousand more. They aren't losers, they're people. The intelligent question is how best to help our neighbors get back on their feet.
But Santelli and his self-righteous followers are like people who, seeing a neighbor's house on fire, cross their arms and urge the fire department to do nothing, pointing out that the flaming building was poorly constructed and owned by an irresponsible S.O.B. who smoked in bed.
All of that might be true. But it's probably best addressed after we make sure the whole block doesn't burn down.
fwiw, I've never missed a mortgage payment and it's never occurred to me to begrudge those who have and need the government's help.
What's wrong with me?
