Getting politicky

Go watch this video, then think about going to Angry Renter and signing the petition.

It's true - why don't renters get tax writeoffs the way homeowners do? Why do we have to pay for them to own a home?

Interesting video which I totally agree with, however, I don't believe it has anything to do with whether you are a home owner or not. There are many of us home owners out there who did not buy out of our price range, who bought modest homes, with sensible 30 year fixed loans, and are not requiring bail out. And we don't want to bail out Bob either. First he was an idiot to get a loan he was not able to pay, and secondly the bank was idiotic to give him the loan. Just a thought.

Ditto!

Also, I could be totally wrong, but I think it's just the interest you pay on your mortgage that is tax deductible. I was able to pay off my mortgage when Ad was killed, so I don't have either, but I loathe the idea of having to bail out greedy and irresponsible banks and people from the situation we are in now!

Ad and I were amazed, knowing what we could afford for a mortgage, at how much the bank approved us for- which was far more than we could have actually afforded!
