The answer is Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Zero. They haven’t got a clue. They are going to let it all come down, however it comes.

People I know were evicted today from their home in the wake of not being able to pay their mortgage. A long legal battle ended. They lost. The Sheriffs were there. There was the cliche, the spectacle of having the young children sit on the curb while the furniture was deposited on the lawn. I don’t have $30,000+ to loan them to stop it. Nor do their friends or family. And I don’t see Congress or anybody else stepping in to do anything about this. Maybe later on, when they’ve moved out and lost their home and are living somewhere else. Maybe then there will be some “relief.” For somebody else. I wish they lived in Chicago, but they don’t.
