Barack Obama sued Citibank on behalf of ACORN in 1995 claiming the bank was not making mortgages to poor and minorities. This added to the current crisis when these people were not able to pay their mortgages and lost their home. The banking industry made a practice of talking people into buying homes they couldn’t afford and law firms like the one Barack Obama worked for were responsible for this problem by taking advantage of the poor and talking them into getting mortgages.
This is the sort of programs we are going to be stuck with under President Obama. That’s change no one wants.
