Better built than most new tract homes!The U.S. economy will continue to be terrible, as far as jobs and housing and state tax revenues, as long as the Housing Crisis continues. And, based on today’s news and basically all housing news for several years now, the collapse of the Housing Bubble is an ongoing catastrophe — with prices still falling, terrible loans still “resetting,” 9% unemployment sending ever more families into default, 14 million homeowners “underwater,” 3 million foreclosures last year and another 3 million foreclosures expected this year. How might the House Republicans help America “get back to work” or whatever? By eliminating the four federal programs that have helped 1.5 million homeowners temporarily reset their mortgages and 600,000 permanently modify their loans to more affordable amounts.

Killing this flawed-yet-helpful program isn’t all the House GOP is doing, for America. They’re also hoping to eliminate three other housing assistance programs — including a Bush-era program to keep entire taxpaying neighborhoods from falling into blight by providing money to states and cities “to buy and rehabilitate abandoned and foreclosed properties.” It’s the Republican response to the fourth year of the nationwide housing nightmare!

Reuters:

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to kill President Barack Obama’s signature program to help struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure, although the bill is unlikely to clear the Senate. A bill to terminate the program was approved on a 252-170 vote. It was the last in series of four measures brought forward by newly empowered House Republicans to end government assistance for homeowners hurt by the housing crisis.

So, uhh, it won’t actually happen … until, as a “compromise,” the White House and the Senate agree to eliminate the programs. We do all need to come together to help the banks that originated all these bubble loans, and then took a trillion dollars in bailout money from the federal government.

Bloomberg:

About 1.5 million households have begun trial mortgage modifications through HAMP, fewer than initial projections of 3 million to 4 million. More than 600,000 homeowners have received permanent modifications.

The vote is the last of four brought by House Republicans to kill funding for homeowner-aid programs backed by the administration.

We hope all the working class “Republicans” who voted for these assclowns last November will realize this is all “for their own good.” [Bloomberg/Reuters]

          It's about sitting in your cold, dark (power cut off), foreclosed home and getting drunk. Or doing drugs. Or reading the help wanted ads by the light of a fading flashlight.

Then, she incredulously told her colleagues to stop talking about jobs and focus rather on the substance of the amendments:

    Americans could fuck up a Chinese funeral. It was all set up for the Democrats to make sure the corporate types who run the country get what they want and the Republicans were there to take the truly fucking crazies out of the mix. So what do Americans do but elect the fucking Republicans and send the whole goddamn thing on a water slide into a pool of shit.

      Most recovering addicts will tell you that you gotta hit bottom before you can climb back up. We are still addicted to lazy thinking, lazy wishing, and just laziness. I'm not sure we'll get out of this until the American Idle can't afford the electricity to watch American Idol. When the distractions can't distract from the misery any more for enough people, then we will begin to climb back up. Or start the civil war.

      • HistoriCat

        Hitting bottom sounds extremely unpleasant but there's just no other way for us to turn around. Time to rip off the bandaid and hope that it doesn't hurt too much afterwards.

      These poor, ignorant Republican voters are simply voting on the "wedge" issues that GOP candidates incessantly plug on the campaign trail:

      Gun rights
      Homophobia
      Racism
      …and the mythical "Christian persecution"
      etc.

      Then, once, elected, the GOP simply shit on the middle/lower classes (and dole out benefits to the rich/corporations) while throwing a bone to the "values" voters with meaningless legislation (e.g. requiring "In God We Trust" to be on all public buildings).

      Read the book "What's the Matter With Kansas" for a more concise theory of the classic GOP bait-and-switch.

  • I'm in graduate school right now, and I'm taking a "Topics in American Studies" class as a required course. Monday's class was taught by a wonderful political science professor, and one of the first things he talked about was the fact that our government is so useless precisely because it is organized to compromise. The two inevitable results of the separation of power — and of the bi-cameral legislature — are that it fosters compromise and creates a veto model. Because of this, we can't get anything done, and we're just getting more polarized as a result. As he put it, while there is an incentive to cooperate, there is also the strong possibility that nothing will be done.

    • tessiee

      While I don't disagree with your professor, I think it's probably also worth pointing out that the Reptilians basically have no objective other than being obstructive sons of bitches. We had a bicameral legislature and separation of powers 2000-2008, and Bush still got everything he wanted and nothing he didn't. I know this is a stretch, but if Bush had wanted single payer health care, he would have gotten it in a DAY!

    • GOPCrusher

      I honestly believe that they are still angry that Bush and Paulson asked for TARP money instead of not letting the entire global economy collapse.

      This is the most depressingly accurate summary that I've read in quite some time. I lived in the South for over a decade (although I realize that this attitude is by no means limited to the South), and the kind of trash you're talking about would gladly cut off their own arms and legs if it meant that whoever they don't like — "niggers", "queers", people who went to college, people who don't have ten kids, whoever is the boogeyman of any given moment — would be miserable.

      Parts of my family are immigrants and my paternal ancestry goes back 150 years. Every generation has done a bit better than the last, except mine. My generation couldn't afford to buy homes. We rent well into our middle 30s and later when our parents and grandparents all had bought houses before 30. Our parents worked two jobs to keep up with what their parents could afford on one income. We work two plus jobs and still can afford what our parents could. It all goes to gas and insurance and day care and the costs to keep us working. In another 10 years we will complete the regression by having all our extended families living in the one surviving McMansion, just like back in the 19th century.

    Say, could we just find an angry mob and point 'em at Rick Santelli's place? I can't afford a pitchfork, but could probably manage a torch.

    Sometimes I think the Repubs are all closet Marxist and are doing everything in their power to bring on a revolution, the kind that almost happened during the Great Depression. Too Glenn Beckish an idea?

      Yeah, but I'm going to revolt anyway.

    Let them eat Koch. (Here in Badgervelt we already are.)

  • I question some of those housing statistics. For example the "14 million homeowners under water" seems kind of fishy.

      Less "homes" more "plastic castles and fake treasure chests", but yeah, there are fish everywhere.

    I think I need to have a modification done on my butthole…cause these tools have reamed it about as wide as they possibly can….ouch!

    Well, it's not like the banks are actually using the program to help anyone. They lose as much paperwork as possible and if someone actually manages to squeak through and get a modified loan, the bank forecloses on them anyway.

    This isn't to say that Republicans aren't heinous. But I'm certain that the Obama administration won't roll over and take it up the ass on this one, no sir. I'm sure they're going to stand firm. Right?

    the truck stops also have a lot of nice 12v appliances you can run in the car as well…I have had my eyes on a sandwich maker for a while, but I think it's a bit too luxurious for me–I will stick to using a cast iron skillet over a burning tire instead.

      As long as there are trees, you can use a stick to cook hot dogs.

    Being on the back end of the Baby Boomer Generation, its depressing to think that our parents will be the last generation to have a better life than their parents.

    There are very few advantages to being old. One, however, is knowing I won't have to witness douchebaggery like this for anther forty or fifty fucking years.

    A bridge apparently to nowhere. I haz sad. :(
