U.S. Orders Up To A
Yearlong Break On
Mortgage Payments

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 3/21/2020 4:47:11 AM

Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

I wonder if it would be better to target credit card companies and force them to reduce interest rates. Rates are low but cc companies are still charging exorbitant rates during a time of hardship and crisis. From google: If the prime rate is 5.50%, the current APR on that variable rate card would be 18.50%. That means the prime rate has a direct, but typically small, impact on the finance charges you pay on your credit card when you carry a balance. The higher the prime rate, the more you'll pay to revolve a credit card balance.

Yet another manifestation of the genius of Donald Trump. No kidding – – in almost 4 decades in the business world and six decades in the real world, I’ve never seen anything approaching his level of acumen. And he is using this to preserve, protect and defend our magnificent country. The Spirit of Truth is becoming stronger under his leadership. I pray every day for our president, and twice on Sunday.

This entire ordeal proves one thing for sure. Carry a little debt as possible and especially get your house paid off.

We paid cash for our house just about 1 year ago. How much of that can I get back?

That sounds so wonderful and thoughtful at first sight but it is no different than Bernie's free everything. Government has no business ordering private business to run them the way the government wants them too. I like Trump but I have seen him do some dictatorial moves that I am not happy with, at ll. Actions like this is just the camels nose pushing in further under the tent. If it continues, our tent will collapse.

We have no mortgage payment. We have no credit card debt. We have no medical debt. We have no student loan debt. We have no debt, period. I guess we won't be taking other peoples money to pay our bills. If you want it to sound better, we won't be joining the Socialist system any time soon. Folks, learn to live within your means, have 6 months to a year backup of money and food, believe in the Lord All -mighty, and you won't have to live in fear.

Well, I am really glad that there are some people who can pay for their house with cash. Most people cannot. We are very sensible people with no credit card debt and live simply. Yet, we do have a mortgage payment (within our means) but I am not going to judge people because of my own situation. Thank you, #2, for your comments. I can always tell who the posters are when it comes to negative articles about President Trump.

Oh, by the way #6, President Trump is not a socialist but he does care about people. Did you kind of figure that out with his slogan, Make America Great Again. He loves his country and the people who live here and is caring enough through difficult times. May I suggest opening a Bible and reading it from beginning to end. . .

And for those of us who sacrificed and saved to pay cash for our homes, we get to bend over and grab our ankles. How about make Uncle Sugar Teet put money where his grubby hand is and CANCEL this year's federal income tax? You'd see this ridiculous "crisis" over a flu strain no more dangerous than the 1918 Spanish flu END toot sweet.

My post at #4 was not meant to make light of people who will have debt issues as their income takes a hit or lobs are even lost. Frankly, even as a staunch conservative, there are times when governments SHOULD take extraordinary action to help people who find themselves in hard times through NO fault of their own. This is one of those times. The governments are REQUIRING shut downs and closures of businesses. The governments should step in and do what they can to minimize the negative effects of those actions. But, don't think for a moment that someone who paid cash for their house a year ago is not also going to feel pain from this. That was my point.

Government does not have the best reputation for "helping," so it's hard for some of us to accept the help when it's really needed. I'd rather do bad by myself, as they say. I think the differences expressed here are because we want government to do what it's supposed to do, and we are so far from decent government. Our government is corrupt and needs a drastic overhaul. It can't be done as long as we have the politicians that we currently have and as long as we have a dumbed-down populace that doesn't understand what kind of government is best for them. They're too used to being needy slaves. I weep for my children's generation. When they are the seasoned Americans, what will this country look like. Judging by today, it probably won't be a constitutional republic.

I don't know why some of you seem to think this is "free money." Read the taxpayer funds are being used and home owners still have to pay their full mortgage amount. It's just deferred. My husband's, son's and daughter's jobs have all gone, hopefully temporarily, but it does put a crimp in the budget.

#5 is exactly correct. Once people finish rejoicing about NO MORTGAGE! and the FREE $1,200 !they better start worrying about who, how much, and when all that free stuff will need to be paid back. Oh wait you thought all that free stuff was going to be free forever? Silly goose. We're talking trillions of dollars here, kids. And oh by the way, all of you who paid cash for your home and all of you/us who have no debt of any kind...guess now have a ton of debt that you/we will be forced to pay for all this not-really-free stuff. Welcome to socialism! It really feels good until the debt comes due, banks collapse, the food is gone, and really bad stuff takes over.

The difference between liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans doesn't seem so great...where's my check? Where are my price supports? Where's my mortgage payments being suspended? Let's jam the credit card companies, too. When Republicans play this game it's "caring about people". When the Dems do it's Socialism. Government is not supposed to be either a charity or a market manipulator. But this is an emergency!

Someone please correct me (in a non snarky way) if I'm wrong, but we have not yet received a law from Congress on this. They are too busy arguing about pork and Christmas tree ornaments they want to hang on Government help to agree. There are a few reasons for this, and excuse me for being simplistic...but get over it! Some want permanent Govt benefits and this crisis presents an opportunity to install that in a way that never will be removed. Some want funds for items that have nothing to do with this crisis, and those funds somehow make their way back into those same Politicians through campaign contributions. When the banks and other financial institutions paid back their temporary TARP relief, Congress did not retire the debt issued to provide that support. They spent that money on other stuff! And stole as much as they could! That was before they traded on inside information!!! Or their advisors who had discretionary rights over their accounts (to provide deniability) heard the dog whistle and bought and sold according to what was going to happen. BECAUSE THEY KNEW! The main reason we're making any progress against this pandemic it that the President declared a National Emergency to free up the resources to move quickly. He is inartful at times, and certainly other character defects often appear if you listen to him. But you cannot deny that he can, and has put talented and very competent people in positions to deal with the complex situation where we find ourselves. Behind closed doors, I would imagine he can be a very challenging boss to deal with! I would not be surprised if he says to some his incredibly talented experts, 'I don't care what you do GET IT DONE! This what we need now. When this thing is over, my hope is that the strength DJT gains by handling this problem will give him the power to truly drain the swamp and expose the thieves (many in our Government) who don't care whether you live or die. Or what happens to your kids or grandchildren.

First off, let me state for the record that I am not an economist. Bit my dad and many of his generation hated FDR, blaming him for extending the Great Depression strictly due to the Government's attempt to correct the downturn in the economy. I don't know even if the two situations are comparable, but I have a deep distrust of Government meddling with the private sector economy.

A resounding Amen to all posters promoting fiscal sanity. Debt is bad no matter what the prevailing crisis. A cardinal rule of first responder and EMT training: you can't help others if you need help yourself (scene safety context). I praise God for his provision over the years. I pray He ends this flu crisis soon. Lord, please shine the truth on this situation and help us live as we should. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Good grief! So much sanctimonious horse manure here and to be honest, virtue signalling. Payment deferral is not a hand out. Everyone gets their money in the end. If interest is still accruing and if you can make payments or even partial payments, that is best. But if God forbid you lose your job and are out if work for 10 months (our one bread earner family experienced this after the 2008 crash) you can feed your kids and keep the lights on. Repeat after me, "Are there no prisons?? Are there no workhouses??!!" is not good OPTICS right now!!

I have a VA loan so not sure if they will be doing the same. I bet they will. If so I will take up the option to suspend and instead of paying the mortgage, I will put the same amount into savings. Will still need to pat property taxes and insurance but thats not much. Im happy if it happens.

The distrust of government is well founded and deeply ingrained after 50 years of creeping communism, and certainly after the Obamanation. Our revulsion at give-aways making people lazy and dependent has become an automatic response, and our fears would be justified if a commie Dim was leading during this crisis. Instead we have Donald J. Trump; Swamp Slayer. He is no Marxist ideologue or a secret socialist. President Trump is a realist and an American patriot. He can only use the tools that already exist on the federal workbench. Whereas the commies used them to undermine our country; Trump is using them, along with tools from his personal workshop, to rebuild us into a nation. He is not letting this crisis "go to waste." He is slashing and modifying regulations, and engaging the private sector as partners instead of targets. Not so many days ago critics were certain the Great Hunkering was going to crash the economy and plunge us into eternal poverty, "You just can't shut down the biggest economy in world. Its 1929 all over again!" Also, understandable sentiments considering the last 50 years. Instead President Trump engaged every sector of the US economy, meeting with the CEOs of all major corporations in each industry. They identified for him the government straitjackets that were preventing them from reacting nimbly to save their employees and serve their customers best during this extraordinary time. President Trump listened and acted. They are forging a new way for the government and private sector to work together for the good of our people in an emergency. All the "what about" questions are being answered. Landlords can let April rent slide because their bankers are giving them a reprieve. Companies are releasing quarterly bonuses early, or sending out partial paychecks. The big hotel chains are helping out their franchisers. They have been enabled to help the people in their sector without running afoul of regulations meant for normal times. President Trump is fundamentally transforming America before our eyes. Be not afraid. God is working in the world...Donald J. Trump is His builder.

Apologies for a second post - - but noting justifies federal government subsidies or bailouts. Nothing. They not only don't work - - but they take away all of our ammunition in our battles against socialism and communism. Let businesses and individuals work out their own financial solutions among themselves. That's called a "market economy" - - and it's the only thing that has ever worked. No subsidies or bailouts - - ever!

Please indulge a second post. #27 - I whole heartedly agree with, "Let businesses and individuals work out their own financial solutions among themselves." However, given the current state of our laws and regulations people do not have that freedom. That is what President Trump is trying to achieve...breaking America from the chains of socialism and he is using these precious few weeks to lay the foundation for a truly free America. As a man we all admire says, "We'll see what happens."

#27, as a rock-ribbed conservative who's never taken a thing fr/ government, my head says I totally agree with you. But I was just on the way to recovering fr/ the Obama years (the only time I EVER acquired debt), and am now as a single person staring at no income for the forseeable future. Really funny how everything goes up except wages-- property taxes, utilities, sales tax, insurance. We're already living under socialism-- if you could see all the free stuff I'm providing for others, you would know that I would be in good shape if I could just keep more of my stuff. I don't know how we change the landscape-- I only know that my mortgage is due by April 16, and that I've never been able to give up eating. #29, so sorry for your loss.

As the nation confronted the new coronavirus, the mainstream media quickly settled upon its all-too-predictable talking points. This is “Trump’s Katrina,” we were told, a crisis the president cannot “spin” away, and which almost certainly spells his electoral doom. Say what you will, but the media herd has a coordinated response for every occurrence: Blame President Donald Trump. Democrats should, however, beware of attempts to politicize COVID-19 or to score cheap political points against the president. It is true that the crisis, steadily building in China, should have triggered more rapid planning in America — even while congressional Democrats continued to occupy all of Washington with their ideologically driven impeachment effort.

My accusation is well-founded and well-documented. Early last December, a young doctor at a Wuhan hospital discovered the first case of illness caused by a heretofore unknown virus. He immediately established the link with an earlier epidemic that had begun in the same place and under the same circumstances, in 2002–2003: SARS, a viral pneumonia.

Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

As the novel coronavirus works it way through the United States, many Americans have seen their savings dwindle as the stock market continues its unprecedented free fall. But for a handful US senators, the crisis was cause for a windfall. That’s because Richard Burr and Kelly Loeffler, both of whom were briefed for weeks as the coronavirus approached America, decided it was a good idea to use their inside information to dump over a million dollar in stocks.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has demanded that networks stop airing White House updates about the coronavirus pandemic, excoriating President Donald Trump for making optimistic promises about an unproven drug to treat the infection. 'I know we ought to be getting used to this kind of thing by now, but I'm not,' Maddow said on her show Friday night. 'President Trump today, again, just flat-out wrong in public about this malaria drug that has gotten stuck in his mind, quite some distance from the facts.' Maddow was referring to Trump's sweeping claims about a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine, which is being investigated as a potential treatment

Dr Anthony Fauci has been caught smirking at President Donald Trump during a coronavirus press conference, further fueling rumors of tension between the pair. The incident occurred Friday afternoon, while the Commander-in-chief was giving the media an update on the COVID-19 outbreak flanked by members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force team, which includes Dr Fauci. The highly-respected immunologist looked to roll his eyes and suppress laughter as Trump lashed out at the State Department, describing them as the 'Deep State department'. Dr Fauci then placed his hand over his face, in what many described as a 'face palm' reaction to Trump's inflammatory remarks.

That’s going to get worse. But the president of the United States is from New York City, and he will not lift a finger

(snip) Fauci is taking the position that he and the US government should not approve Hydroxychloroquine because it might not be safe and might not be effective, based on his smear of high-quality science as mere anecdote.

Always, he was an enthusiastic advocate of throwing more federal money at the problem of AIDS. He's widely praised in the press.

Our concern about Donald Trump in the campaign of 2016 was not about his personal morals. ... It feels increasingly like Americans are watching execution of a plan to take down America as a constitutional republic, and Trump as president, fed by a CIA-type psychological assessment of Trump that bet on his ‘go big’ instincts that are untethered by a deep ideological understanding and appreciation for what truly makes America exceptional and great.

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

Calls are increasing for cable networks to stop airing President Donald Trump’s press conferences live as critics believe Trump is turning White House news briefings into virtual campaign rallies that can “get people killed” with lies about the Coronavirus crisis. The pressure only increased after Trump’s Friday briefing.The Atlantic’s James Fallows believes the attention-starved Trump is turning the press conferences into “virtual campaign” rallies and Trump would actually lose interest in showing up if the media did not cover the briefings live.“Also, as a practical matter, if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself,” Fallows argues.
