Default California Dems want a sit-down with Obama

Our state politicians don't get it ... Obama's programs are successful ...

California Dems want a sit-down with Obama over 'insufficient' housing policy

"Exasperated over the Obama administration's response to the ongoing housing crisis, a large group of California Democrats has asked to meet directly with the president."

Obama has no reason to give them the time of day. The state is gift-wrapped for him already in the election. It's unfortunate, but that's politics.

Wow...


Among other proposals, the lawmakers are pushing to allow underwater homeowners who file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to skip interest payments for five years – a move designed to reduce principal balances more quickly.

"Staying true to custom, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) did not endorse either delegation letter."

Nancy knows Obama's agenda and she fully supports it. So does Brown and I didn't even see Brown mentioned in the article ... interesting.

So true, speaking truth to power won't do much good. Why should he??
If you have you have crossed the rubicon, a few elephants won't discourage you?

"ongoing housing crisis"

This is rapidly correcting itself in many parts of the state as those who should never have been given mortgages go back to renting, and house prices come back to earth. Anything the politicians do to interfere with this process will only prolong it, at taxpayer expense.
