We used to joke about how dumb many Obama supporters were: they fully expected that if Obama were elected, he would pay their mortgages. Ha. Ha.
Turns out, these naifs weren’t so dumb after all: help is on the way for many who were given mortgages that they should not have qualified for (WSJ). Others who find themselves unemployed will be given additional welfare. The rest of us? We’ll keep on paying, more and more.
Perhaps there is such a thing as a free lunch? Yes, if you have no pride.
