$26 Billion Deal Is Said To Be Set For Homeowners - NYT - they say this will be for about 2,000,000 homeowners. Averages $13,000 per homeowner. The benefits will be distributed over 3 years. What a sick joke. Who even knows whether the banks even did anything wrong since the government and Goldman Sachs were the creators of the financial crisis. But in light of the scale of the crisis, this is just a sick joke.
