    ...but to dismiss a program that will help some people because it doesn't help everyone just seems foolish.

    Exactly what do you think the president can do to hep those who are long-term jobless and have run out of money, without getting the approval of the congress?

    •  Well, Tex, dunno if I could say... (0+ / 0-)

      exactly, BUT (!) given his ability to pronounce the edict he just pronounced, it would seem to me his heart wasn't in doing something, anything (w/o congressional consultation) untilllll.....

      his upcoming bid for re-election?

      Wait...maybe somethin' along these here lines:

      what would be helpful is about 2 years amnesty where I could put the mortgage payment back into the house and repair the

      windows~ old and falling apart

      Bathroom and Kitchen~ severe water damage

      etc.

        This isn't what I need (1+ / 0-)

        I don't need to refinance. I am underwater in my mortgage.

        I need to make major repairs in my home, but what is the point of sinking more money into a house that I can't sell for what I owe?

        It makes more sense to walk away right now.

        windows~ old and falling apart

        Bathroom and Kitchen~ severe water damage

        etc.

        Nice try though.

        I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

    •  I think you're being overly harsh... (0+ / 0-)

      ... I don't think he/she was "dismissing" the program.  I suspect that you could be interpreting the comment in the most negative light rather the most positive.
