Your Call 031209 What's in it for California?

How does President Obama's housing plan help Bay Area homeowners in trouble? On the next Your Call we'll discuss the $75 billion national effort to forestall foreclosures. Obama's plan stands in stark contrast to the inaction of the Bush Administration to directly help homeowners in favor of the banks, but less than 10% of mortgages in the Bay Area qualify. 40% of foreclosures nationally are here in California. Does the only national program to turn back the tide stop at the Sierra Nevada? You can send us an email anytime to or join us live at 11 am. Did you find a way to save your house? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
