Tell President Obama to Put a Freeze on Foreclosures


According to a poll by the Washington Post, 53% of Americans are worried about their next month's mortgage or rent payment, and more than 50% want a temporary moratorium on foreclosures (  

They are right.  The economy is still in terrible shape, and the legality of many home foreclosures is in serious doubt. Tell the president and Congress to stand up to the banks that caused this mess and impose a moratorium on foreclosures until the state attorneys general have a chance to find out what's really going on.

Americans need a break now, and we'll never get the economy going again until we address the root of our financial crisis.
