  • Perhaps you are right the individual is the victim here, a victim that requires a hand out in order to get back on there feet.

    But, if we are going to talk about the evils of greed and how it has caused our current economic woes let us put the blame on the very people you wish to bail out with government jobs. The people who purchased more home than they could afford the people who misrepresented wages in order to secure a loan for that house, the people who didn't take the time to understand just what an ARM will do to their payment over time.

    Is the individual home buyer mentioned as the cause of the problem, no. It is the corporations, the lenders, the government, by no means should we expect individuals to educate themselves about personal finance and expect them to make responsible decisions with the money they earn. No no, hand them a government job when times get tough thus rewarding the entire process.
