Too many families with solid credit who want to buy a home are being rejected. Too many families who have never missed a payment and want to refinance are being told no. That’s holding our entire economy back, and we need to fix it.

It’s those darn banks telling people no.Posted by gerardvanderleun at February 13, 2013 2:50 AM
