“This is very big. I think it’s extremely important to be preventing foreclosures. We’ll see tens of thousands prevented every month and overall, over the next couple of years I would hope it would be in the hundreds to millions of mortgages be rewritten so that people can afford them. We need to stop foreclosures.”

The Big Three Bailout

“I am weighted more towards import than the Detroit-three. And I’ve been an outspoken critic of Detroit over the years and their ways and have had a contentious relationship with Detroit management at times.

And the consequences for the economy would be catastrophic and for main street.”

They’re increasing the national debt dramatically with these “stimulus packages” and “bailout packages” that are doing nothing but killing the economy and causing huge increases in taxes in the future. It’s a disaster.”
