hey...#1...I am not affiliated with OWS.
#2, you were the one that mentioned OWS, as well as one of the other posters who made a comment so ignorant that I couldn't help myself.
Don't make assumptions, and yes, lets return to the topic: Kick and piss on the poor, protect the bankers.

This is intolerable! OWS needs to protest this and not banks. It is stories like these that make feel ashamed to be an American.
Are you freakin' crazy?
Do the math. This amounts to pennies compared to what the banks got away with.
Let's say the couple got their 1,200 voucher for 20 years. (They've only actually had it for 8.)
1,200 x 12 months = $14,400 per year
x 20 years = $288,000
Which seems like a bigger issue to you, of these two? Fraud of A) or B)
The bailouts for the banks was 45,138,888 times larger than what this couple is doing, and yet some people here consider it worth protesting?
*I've used the more conservative figure of 13 trillion. Some say as high as 16,000,000,000,000
I don't think anyone will ever top what the bankers did, in terms of fraud. They are the biggest fraudsters, and the numbers are the evidence. Bring the biggest threat down first!
