No matter how much I try to forget about it, daily I get mad about the bailout -- don't you??
I want to know where Uncle Sugar-Daddy was when I needed him! I lost about 75% of my life savings in the stock market crash of 2000/2001. I sure needed Uncle Sugar-Daddy then to save my butt financially, but I didn't get a dime!
So here I am at 61, still making house payments after just having refinanced my home at 5%. Yet, I can't qualify for any help whatsoever because I have been faithfully paying my mortgage. It sure makes me feel like I should default on my loan just so I can qualify for one of those 2% loans.
How about you -- are any of you Boomers qualifying for housing help under the Economic Stimulus Package?
