(Huffington Post)   New Jersey is sitting on $300 million in federal funds meant to help distressed homeowners fight foreclosure. What do you mean "sitting on?" Well, have you seen their governor?   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 46

Then take them from Jersey and send the funds to states that will use them.

Wasn't there discussion that Wisconsin Gov was considering to use the forecosure funds to bridge a budget gap? This was a few months ago. . .

When he sits around $300 million in federal funds meant to help distressed homeowners fight foreclosure, he really sits AROUND $300 million in federal funds meant to help distressed homeowners fight foreclosure.

That money is being rightfully put away into the Emergency Pudding Reserve.

Not just Wisconsin, but many of the states are using it to plug holes in the general funds.

Walker was just particularly slimey because he took the money, diverted it to the general fund and claimed he balanced the budget.

Well duh, you can't be handing out $300 million in Federal funds to be helping distressed home owner because that might give people a good impression of government and then they might be tempted to vote for Obama.

He'll sit on it until November 7th.

Can't have people feeling this administration might actually be trying to help them, now can we.

Goddammitsomuch.

And the Republican governors biatch about the foreclosure crisis while they sit on/redirect piles of federal money designated specifically to help homeowners.

They COULD use the money to aid distressed homeowners in their states, but fark them, that might help Obama get re-elected, and we can't have that. Motherfarkers.

Are you saying everyone who applies actually qualifies for the bailout?

They approved 25% of applicants.....was that number supposed to be closer to 100%?

Why?

Well, in the case of Walker, he used the money to close a budget gap.
In the case of NJ:
1) The money was to be used to help distressed homeowners. Just over 1% has been used for that purpose. Whatever the program is, it's not doing enough.
2) Given 1) Yes, if you've only used 1% and turn down 80% of applicants (20%, not 25%), the program should be amended and modified so that more of the money is used for its intended purpose, not sitting there in the coffers to be repurposed down the road.

Chris Christie let slip a startling insight into the worst-case scenario today, when asked by a reporter about the possibility of taking cabinet positions in the Romney administration. "What, you think we might win?" The Jersey governor asked, his words caught in silence for a moment as though from a man whose eyes have just been freshly opened to the depth of horror that lurks in the inhuman abyss of realities beyond this one. "I mean, we've, we've been doing everything we can to avoid /that/."

Christie went on to say, "I mean, c'mon. Last time we got hammered with a war hero and a populist maverick, and that was our best shot. You think we're running the Ayndroid pair because we, because we want to win? Get out of here."

Without seeing more information the program could be working as intended....how am I to know if someone who was turned down by the program decided to buy a boat instead of using that money to pay their mortgage?
Theres been a couple theads here where farkers suggested sticking it to the banks by not paying your mortgage.

It seems you guys are sold on some conspiracy though....cause the government hasn't given away enough money to serve some personal arbitrary satisfaction index.

We are setting a very bad example. There are no consequences or reprecussions for bad decisions anymore....and that includes wall street as well as main street.

/should we bail out investors in gold when the gold bubble crashes...why not?

Old news.....

You don't kick out an incumbent president unless the person running against them makes the case," he said during an event in Elmwood Park today. "I've often said you don't win the championship on points. You've got to knock the champ down onto the canvas. That's the way it works, I think in politics, the same way it works most of the time in boxing. And so from my perspective it's up to him. He's got to decide, because in the end you're voting for him you're voting for the candidate.""He's got to make the case for Mitt Romney," Christie said. "People vote for someone most of the time, not against someone. I think the American people are ready to fire Barack Obama, but they've got to be convinced that who they are voting for is an improvement."

The problem with this hypothesis is that Christie wants Obama to win and probably will vote for him. And he wants New Jersey to look very good compared to other states so he can take credit for that in Iowa....right now (he was just happening thru Iowa this month in search of a nice flank steak, maybe?)....unless he can claim this actually puts Jersey in surplus. .

The entire Republican effort at this point has added a whole new dimension to Poe's Law. It's now on the way to becoming a law in the scientific sense of the word, i.e. a phenomenon of nature that has been proven to invariably occur whenever certain conditions exist or are met;

Only in this case, politics.

-fit uncomfortably in many seats and tight spaces
- are less attractive to a majority of potential mates
- are likely to die much earlier
