$1 trillion in mortgage debt still underwater

andycloses - March 1, 201 Umm, check the math...a drop from 15.7 to 13.8 million is a 12% drop, not a 3% drop...Pretty impressive for one year if you ask me. And as far as home value appreciation goes, 6% is close to a Goldilocks amount (just about right)...otherwise the pendulum swings too quickly in the other direction.

hypnotoad72 - March 1, 201 "Live within your means". Many people did, before their jobs were devalued or offshored. Never mind the salesmen that used psychological manipulation in the form of encouragement... (then laugh as they run for public office, and laugh more when they`re voted into office...) It`s a many-sided situation, for which no single facet is solely responsible. Fact. How`s that for a one-liner in response to the inevitable one-liner some others will try to palm. Except mine is more open-ended and leads to research, rather than an intellectually-empty one-liner meant to feel good and solve nothing.
