We have discussed previously why the idea of subsidizing mortgages is flawed from the very beginning. How about this novel idea: kick them out on the street and have them rent at a price they can afford. Will do miracles for real home values and will also drop rents to affordable levels all across the country. Is Mark Haines the only person really outraged by this "plan" and when will outraged Americans finally take to the streets? After all this is everyone's money being flushed down the drain.
