Are you an Angry Renter???

But did you know that renters are 32 percent of American households? And that homes in foreclosure are less than 2 percent?
So why is Congress rushing to bailout high-flying borrowers and their lenders with our tax dollars?
Quite simply, we are just Angry Renters. And now it is our time to be heard: no government bailouts!

  • I'm not an "Angry Renter" (we well financed home owners) but I DO understand the plight of the angry taxpayer having to pay for other people's "mistakes" time and time again!

    Making fun of the link I poster earlier, eh?! LOL

  • Well, we own most of the bad mortgages anyways since Fannie and Freddie were bailed out so we'll have to pay for those foreclosures one way or another.

  • We still rent. We didn't buy into the crappy mortgages they were passing out a couple of years back.

    It really GETS me when people say they didn't know what was going to happen. It was on like page 7 of the literature they were passing out. If the rates go up, this is what your payment will be.

    I took one look at that, and said, there's no way we could afford that. So here we sit. Five years out from our first home. But we will have a GREAT down payment then and will be able to qualify for a good solid mortgage.
