Always Look on the Bright Side...

George Will's got a great column on the mortgage market and the deeply flawed legislation being presented to address it. One point he makes I think has been conspicuously absent from the debate is that there are actually upsides to lower housing prices:

Opposition Builds to $300 Billion Government Mortgage Bail Out

The more Americans learn about the $300 billion taxpayer bailout of reckless lenders and borrowers, the more the opposition and outrage grows. The Frank plan that passed the House of Representatives last week lets banks cherry-pick the worst loans with the least-qualified borrowers, and shift those loans 100 percent to the taxpayers. It’s not fair to force responsible Americans to foot the bill for the least worthy borrowers and their lenders.

47,000 Sign Petition Against Frank's Housing Bill

BY Kerri Panchuk

The controversy over U.S. Rep. Barney Frank's, D-Mass., housing bill continues to draw intense criticism from free market supporters, like FreedomWorks—a nonprofit that promotes responsible fiscal policy—and an organization that believes Frank's bill is nothing more than a bailout funded by taxpayers. Frank's proposed bill, in particular, is facing scrutiny from FreedomWorks because it allows the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) to insure an additional $300 billion mortgage loans to help distressed borrowers who are stuck in risky mortgages.

The Perils of Spending

It's easy to talk in the abstract about government waste, about excessive spending, about Washington bloat. It's bad! And most everyone, right and left, agrees that it's bad (appropriators, of course, are the exception). But with all the talk about how bad it is, we often forget to look at why, exactly, and what happens when spending goes compkletely out of control. As Cato's Elizabeth Karasmeighan explains, that's exactly what's happened in California – and now Governor Schwarzenegger is facing the consequences: constituencies angry they're being cut off from the public dole, backwards spending rules that make cutting spending extremely difficult, and a general fiscal crisis – what to do when there just isn't enough money?

Key Vote "No" S. 2123: the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on S. 2123: the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007.  Rather than upholding the rights of states and municipalities to enact their own laws as the situation warrants, this legislation preempts the authority of local government by forcing them to negotiate with labor unions representing public safety officers over the terms and conditions of employment.

Backlash Grows as Congress Moves Toward Housing Rescue

As Congress moves to aid distressed US homeowners, the prospect of a new rescue is drawing fire from a diverse array of activists, economists and consumers opposing what they call a bailout. The House of Representatives on Thursday approved a bill to create a 300-billion-dollar federal guarantee for new mortgages for people who may be at risk of losing their homes. President George W. Bush threatened to veto the measure, calling it a reward for speculators and lenders.
