    • On August 22, 2009, by Erwi31 - Whats funny, is that inflation is going to happen without this bill. Which means higher interest rates and higher taxes. We have to pay for the bailout somehow. A few of the economists felt that this bill would increase taxes and interest rates if it passes. Now what is there excuse going to be? This bill must pass in order to assist homeowners that are not able to take advantage or partake in the government programs that are offered only to FHA, Fannie, Ginny, and Freddie. We are stuck footing the bill one way or the other.
