The New "American Way"

Recently, our good friend Michael (a local realtor) shared his experience with an Obama supporter he encountered while showing homes to a low income, working family in Pontiac, Michigan. We asked him to write it down so we could share it with you. Here’s his story…
“I thought I'd seen or heard it all. I was showing homes in Pontiac , MI.  one afternoon recently and  showed up at a home at the 4:00 pm time my  appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let us in  and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the banks accepts less money than is owed on the home).
After some chit-chat, she  proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also lived in the area) were  buying each other's homes via the short-sale process. I mentioned to her that  I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions. She smiled  and said "We have two different last names so no one knows the  difference".

She went on to tell us that each  of them owed over 100K on their homes and were in the process of buying each  other's homes for about $10-15K cash. To top it off, they were each receiving  $3,000.00 in government provided  relocation assistance at the closing.

My buyers and I were amazed that she was outright admitting to fraud and yet, she continued. She began to tell us that the best part of their scheme was that because they currently were not working that they (both) are now receiving Section 8 Vouchers.

I said I thought those were for  renters and she said "That's the best part; me and my sister are going to be  renting each other's homes so we don't even have to move, and Obama is going  to give us each $800.00 a month to pay the rent!" She then picked up a picture she had framed of Obama and did a little happy dance around her living room  and while she kissed the picture she was singing "Thank you Obama.... thank  you Obama."
So here is the bottom line. Both of these scammers got at least $80,000.00 in debt forgiven, $3,000.00 in cash for relocation (when in  fact they did not relocate) and to boot, you and I will now be paying (through our taxes) $1,600.00 in rent for each them each and every month....perhaps forever!

Is it any wonder why so many people have decided that all  they have to do is VOTE for the Democrats and they will be taken care of for life at the expense of the taxpayers? I would not be at all surprised if they  are receiving food stamps and whatever other programs are available for anyone who is willing to lie to get assistance.

These women went from working and paying about $900.00 each in mortgage payments to staying home and getting  paid $800.00 each per month to live in the same home they had been living in and all they had to do was lie on a few papers.

This craziness has to stop! I'm sure  this kind of fraud is going on each and every day all across the country and  no one wants to touch the subject of entitlements because they might OFFEND  someone or lose a vote or two.

By the way...she had an almost new SUV  in the driveway, three flat screen TV's and a very nice computer set up in her  living room which was furnished entirely with nice leather furniture.


For all of  the "do-gooder's" who voted for Obama to help the "less fortunate" .... CHEERS  ..... they are now the "most fortunate!"
