Congress is taking aim at mortgage practices

WASHINGTON -- Spurred by the crisis in the home mortgage industry, Congress is readying a slew of proposals aimed at changing some lending practices and helping financially distressed homeowners hang onto their homes.

I look forward to the promised hearings, but I will await results before passing judgment.

FHA picking up some of the subprime market, IMHO, makes sense.

Countrywide execs need to spend a little quality time with staff from the Bureau of Prisons.

Re: Congress is taking aim at mortgage practices

What I DO NOT believe is that Congress can say they did not see this coming.
That is BS -
It is too little, too late to "Fix" this.

Some lenders need to decide to jack the rates per the contracts or do what they can to keep payments coming in.
