Bailouts and Foreclosures

The Green-Rainbow Party is a founding member of the Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL). 

  • We support a moratorium on housing foreclosures and on evictions of renters in foreclosed properties.
  • Lenders should be required to negotiate affordable mortgages for every homeowner caught in the trap of subprime or other inappropriate mortgages.
  • Foreclosed properties should be made availble for acquisition as affordable housing by non-profits or community development organizations.
  • We support direct aid to struggling individuals and families, but oppose Federal bailouts of corporations, financial institutions, and wealthy investors -- the parties who created the mortgage crisis.

Perhaps the City of Boston could follow the footsteps outlined in Matt Taibi’s Rolling Stone article.

The city would take underwater or to-be-foreclosed homes by eminent domain, paying the loan company the current market value of the home, while arranging a writedown of the previous mortgage, so that the residents can re-finance with the city, despite the banks, at the current, real value of the home. Then the city would sell the new mortgage on the mortgage market, I guess.

I recommend Matt Taibi’s article, at:
