Lincoln Hates Homeowners

Miami home foreclosures have more than doubled in the second quarter, due in part to Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart's inaction on the housing crisis. In Miami-Dade County, the number climbed from 1,282 to 2,677, according to the online real estate data company (Bloomberg, 7/2/08)

"Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart failed South Florida's homeowners with their inaction on this critical issue, and we continue to see the consequences," Florida Democratic Party spokesman Alejandro Miyar said. "In South Florida, foreclosures have doubled - families are losing their homes and communities are declining because of Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart's opposition to solutions that would help Floridians."

Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart also both opposed creating a reserve fund for affordable housing, paid for through proposed reforms to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (H.R. 312, #141, 3/13/08)
