Even then, I had to settle for an ARM

Refi'd to a 30yr fixed in 05, glad I did even if it did eat up some equity.

But Joe Lugnutinstaller can get a $300,000 home and all that stuff that goes with it 4 years later, no money down. Used to piss me off, now i'm just a-laughin'

You and I wont be laughing if the gov't starts buy these mortgage securities and making deals with those people to "keep them in their homes"
