I was hoping. I really was. But no.

Middle class screwed in the first hour of Trump Presidency, hit with higher mortgage insurance payments. …What’s next?


How Donald Trump Just Raised Many Mortgage Bills

…Trump, who claimed a populist mantle in his first speech as a president, signed the executive order reversing an Obama-era policy less than an hour after leaving the inaugural stage.

The order will have the immediate effect of increasing the amount that most non-wealthy homeowners must contribute to the Federal Housing Authority’s insurance program. Beginning Jan. 27, most borrowers will now have to pony up six-tenths of a percent of their mortgage each month, up a quarter of a percentage point from last year. Americans with $200,000 mortgages will pay roughly $500 more in 2017 than they did in 2016, according to the FHA.

Trump’s decisionwill have very little affect on wealthier mortgage holders



Trump Reverses Obama's Mortgage Fee Cuts on First Day

…Shares of private mortgage insurance companies, including MGIC Investment Corp. and Radian Group Inc., erased earlier losses, trading up about one percent as of mid-afternoon. They closed little changed from the day before. Private insurers, which back loans guaranteed by mortgage-finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, compete with the FHA for market share and have been critics of fee cuts in the past.

…“This action is completely out of alignment with President Trump’s words about having the government work for the people,” said John Taylor, president of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, through a spokesman. “Exactly how does raising the cost of buying a home help average people?”



Crowd size is THE big national priority, not just penis size. …Related?

already a thread about this:www.abovetopsecret.com...
I`ll post the same here that I posted in that thread.

the average increase for customers will amount to $1.37 a day, the savings to those same customers,when obamacare is repealed will amount to vastly more than $1.37 a day

I liked Trump's anti-globalization rap, and I was hoping for more. A lot more.

Looks like SSDD.

Yes private insurance is much much more expensive that group insurance.

Business owner here. My HR supervisor was also very good with numbers. She got my people a big big discount. Too bad they won't have that if the man who bought the business from me decides he doesn't even want to offer insurance. Something I did before the gov't said I had to. BTW...

Well no I wasn't there. But even today you can still see remnants of people enslaved by the Democratic party. When their free stuff is threatened we see what we see in the streets today.

we just bailed that out in 2013 for 1.7 Billion dollars.

So it wasn't making enough money..



Prior to January 2008 : 0.50% annual MIP
October 2008 : 0.55% annual MIP
April 2010 : 0.55% annual MIP
October 2010 : 0.90% annual MIP
April 2011 : 1.15% annual MIP
April 2012 : 1.25% annual MIP
April 2013 : 1.35% annual MIP
January 2015 : 0.85% annual MIP



the cut changed your Loan cost of $500 a year for a $200,000 loan.

so if you have an FHA loan...

your monthly cost is now $42.00 Higher.


It's just putting the number back where it should be so that we don't have to bail it out for billions of dollars again.

This puts it back at 1.15% which is the same it was in 2011, and lower than it was in 2012 (1.25%)and 2013. (1.35%)

Its nominal. $500 more a year isnt too big a hit. Not like the penalty within the ACA for not carrying insurance. And if it does hurt, maybe some responsibility should fall on the homeowner...maybe that "owner" doesnt need such an "expensive" (relative) home.

Lets not wash away the accountibility homeowners had during the housing bubble. Some people just arent ready to carry a mortgage.

So again, if $45 a month extra is breaking a homeowner, they might want to rethink some things.

I'm pretty sure shifting the money from one thing to another wasn't the idea. Plus at least the money going to healthcare meant getting something for your money. All this is doing is making you pay more for something you already have while losing your healthcare which you must now also pay for so you're losing money.

In fact, under 8 years of Obama that enslavement nearly doubled with new welfare recipients. Or was that in fact Fake News?

obamacare is great for people who get subsidies but people who get the subsidies don`t make enough money to buy a house so this $1.37 a day raise in mortgage insurance won`t affect them at all.

For people who can afford to buy a house and don`t get the subsidies obamcare has drastically raised their insurance premiums and deductables.

a $1.37 a day increase in mortgage insurance in exchange for thousands of dollars a year decrease in health insurance is a great deal.

If you have a mortgage, you don't have snip. People took a risk trusting you to pay them a lot of money over a long period of time. Asking loaners to pay a little into security seems like a fair request. Don't like it? Save your money and stop sticking your hand out for loans.

The same audience applauds Obama for the economic recovery after the housing bubble burst. You can't have it both ways.
