Stress? Thats funny. Why don’t one of these high priced politicians test the stress of the taxpayer being crushed under the mountain of government bail-out debt?? Real borrowers for real mortgages with real incomes at realistic prices for real estate are what is going to stabilize the banking sector. The banks were given the rules by government. They played by the rules. The rules were a joke, and the inevitable happened. We need better government, and a lot fewer bureaucratics, which will mean less stress on us taxpayers.
