Roy Barnes is so full of it.
The constitution of the State of Georgia is pretty clear that the government cannot interfere with contracts between people. Tonight Barnes has up a commercial that he’s going to force banks to negotiate with deadbeats who buy a million dollar home and know they can’t afford it.
The state cannot and should not do that.
This is like the SEIU thugs who showed up on the front porch of the Bank of America employee’s home in Maryland two weeks ago. One of them said he was there because Bank of America wouldn’t negotiate with him to let him save his home.
Well, you know what? If I buy a house I can’t afford or fall on hard times, the bank should not have to give me my house. Life ain’t fair. Never was. Never can be legislated to be fair.
