Obama’s Foreclosure Relief Program Was Designed to Help Bankers, Not Homeowners

President Obama came into office promising to be an activistic leader for all U.S. citizens, but he has fallen short of that promise. The administration’s foreclosure relief program, for example, was made to help banks, not homeowners, which is far from trying to help the average citizen.

Professional sports venues are draining public tax reserves
(currently Miller Park, and soon a new Bucks arena?)
In a related development, www.Urbanmilwaukee.com published an important piece by Bruce Murphy highlighting the way professional sports venues (currently Miller Park, and soon a new Bucks arena?) are draining public tax reserves by using municipal services while paying NO property tax.
