Yet another example of where government bails out people with other people's money. Government has no business doing this, especially spending our money and resources. If you take on a mortgage where you cannot afford it, either sell your house or let the foreclosure process run its course. This exemplifies everything that is wrong with America. People make bad decisions financially. Time for government to stop taking money from responsible people to bailout financially not.
