CNN is reporting that “a new national poll suggests that most Americans think the plan is unfair to those who pay their mortgages on time.”
- 64% say the plan is unfair to people who pay their mortgages on time
- Only 28% say Obama’s new plan is fair
- 57% say they approve of the package
- 55% believe the plan will stabilize home prices
CNN Polling Director, Keating Holland indicates that while Americans don’t like to see people get special treatment, they also don’t like to see people suffer.
What do you think? Is the new program FAIR? Or is it simply a necessary evil? What would you propose be done?
Personally, I wish they would just send large chunks of money to every adult US citizen and leave it up to us to stimulate the economy by paying off our debt, our mortgages, or buying new vehicles or whatever. Now, I am no economist, but I would imagine that the Billions (or is it now into the Trillions?) spent on economic recovery plans and bailout programs would be enough even when split with my fellow countrymen to make a nice bit of stimulus for me.
Leave your comments, let me know what YOU wish the government would do about the state of things!
