But what’s really frustrating, if you’ll allow me to say so, is the fact that there are, indeed, people who can/will be able to refi because they made some huge boo-boos.
That’s great for them, and certainly for our economy in general, but what about the others who behaved and played by the rules? Shouldn’t WE be granted some help as well considering we also took it up the a$$? This affects more than the people who helped us get in this mess to begin with. (emphasis on *helped* here as we all know there were many other factors stirring the pot.)
The Mrs. and I aren’t perfect little badgers, but we should still be granted some sort of equal rights. We pay our mortgage on time, we didn’t get too over our heads, and we were responsible. Shouldn’t that count for something? Are we being greedy here? Whatever….I’ll go ahead and stop now. I’m sure everyone’s tired of hearing about this stuff. I just had to get it out since it’s directly affecting us now.
I’m just hoping Mr. Obama has something good up his sleeves…
