We are very frustrated. We are underwater on our homes. Unemployment is rampant in the Michigan area and many, many people, including our friends and acquaintances are counting on receiving some form of relief. The Helping Families Save Their Homes in Bankruptcy Act of 2009 which includeD the cram down provision in bankruptcy was critically important. Please take such action to reintroduce and pass this important legislation. Chrysler’s Bankruptcy (and soon GM’s) is and will continue to cause Michigan to suffer a disproportionate hardship in the housing market for many, many years. This legislation would be a positive step in getting the mortgage lenders to negotiate outside of Bankruptcy due to the threat of filing. At present, everything done to date does NOTHING to truly push the lender to deal with us fairly. We need your help and ask that you garner support among your colleagues to reintroduce this legislation and get meaningful relief passed – with the cram down intact. Thank you.
