I know someone who pays about 600 a month for their apartment, and thats high if you ask me for that neighborhood.

But supporting as many people as she does, she can't afford to get out. And its not her fault, its her daughter who is mentally ill and 31, and her dead beat son who drops his kid off there for months at a time.

She works, works hard, but can't get ahead.

Wouldn't it be better to give someone like her a hand up, and have a better chance to recoup the money than we are from the automobile manufacturers and banks.

And, it would directly stimulate the economy, and solve credit problems.
