Yes, it’s a current article:
Herald Tribune: Admin Aims to Increase Loans for Homes
From the story:
President Barack Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.
In response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer-backed programs — including those offered by the Federal Housing Administration — that insure home loans against default.
I should probably just stop reading the news altogether. Everything I read just about sends me over the edge these days.
We (deliberately) learn nothing.
