Bush did that too and Bush actively circumvented the constitution
For my math appreciation class we had to do a paper on the the sub prime loans and what surprised me was according to the industries own figures from 1998-2006 9% of the sub-prime loans went to first time home owners and 11% from 2006-2008. Turns out a bunch of them were second mortgages. Also, Morgan Stanley was busted for having its people lie about buyers income so that they could be eligible. I will give Obama this, unlike Bush you are seeing where the money is ear marked, with BushCo. they said trust us and let the people who put us in this mess rape the country for 750 billion. Where is the outrage from conservatives over the handout from Bush, there was zero accountability there. Fair play.
Amtrack would be profitable if they just ran in the northeast corridor and parts of the west coast, since they have the volume necessary for a rail service.
