Go back to 2008 and anyone with a mortgage could for up to $300,000 to payoff their mortgage. The banks or lending institutions would then pay back their government loans. The people who get this $300,000 plus or minus would still have to pay this mortgage once the economy returned. This would return the housing market and jobs, foreclosure will only keep driving the market down. It is not right that the middle class in this great country, pays most of the tax burden and are the ones being foreclosed on.
No company, bank, or institution that is getting relief from the government, such as tax breaks, guarantees, or any other moneys, can pay a salary of more than $500,000 per year including any other type of bonus.
