"The Cafferty File": Drowning in debt?Should the federal government bail out homeowners who are facing foreclosure because of rising interest rates?
Absolutely no bailout. These people got in over their heads and took on deals that were too good to be true. The rest of us struggled within our means and so we will look like darn fools. It is enough already hearing about these people. -Bob, New York
Why should I have to pay for someone else's foolish mistake? When I make a mistake I bite the bullet. Freezing the rates is nothing more than more nanny state bull. Besides I've been looking for some cheap property. At least I will purchase what I can afford. -Jim, New Roads, Louisiana
No. They should have read the terms and not overspent. Why should I have to pay for others' inabilities? We should not make mortgages into a welfare program. -N., New York
What should be done about more than 10 million "missing" White House e-mails?
E-mails are forever. A good hacker could get them in a few hours. -Tom, Beaumont, Mississippi
Nothing. Some Democrat is just trying to stir up meaningless political nonsense. -R.A., Texas
I think 10 million missing e-mails should bring about 10 million subpoenas and 10 million calls for impeachment. There is absolutely no excuse for this. It is a blatant obstruction of justice.-B.D., New York
Maybe we should "misplace" Congress' paychecks until they appoint an investigator to locate the missing e-mails. E-mails don't disappear into the ether, they can always be found. -Beth, VirginiaWhat message does it send when the Democratic-led Congress has planned a 5-day workweek for only three times next year?
It sounds like Congress has something better to do than the work of the people who sent them to do our business. Nice work when you can get it! -Roberta
At the rate they do the nation's business, let them take as much time off as they want. Convene for one month a year so they can compare vacations and vote themselves a raise. -Les, Nevada
Simple, pay them by the hour for the time they are at work. -Tim, Marceline, Missouri
Sure Congress could probably work harder, but asking these kinds of questions only promotes bitterness and cynicism that does nothing to improve government. -Jonathan, Lynn, Massachusetts
