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 (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/behind-the-numbers/2010/10/poll_foreclosure_concern_on_th.html).
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.
Fifty million Americans have either lost their homes or are struggling to pay off underwater mortgages. It is time to hold the banks accountable and keep people in their homes. I urge you to enact a nationwide moratorium on housing foreclosures.
