A little heads up about what the Obama Administration has hidden up its sleeves.  Especially since the FED is buying up distressed homes like they were going out of style.... Wait a minute, they are going out of style.

Has any of you ever heard of the "Council Houses" they have in Once Great Brittan.  These homes belong to the British Government and as long as the resident wishes to pay the government to live there and he or she keeps the place up they can live there.  However at the residents' death or incapacitation they are required to move and their children do not receive any of the money that their parents paid in during a lifetime of renting from John Bull.

I hate to say this, but it is nothing but the old National Socialist German Workers Party platform from 1922 designed by Hitler to spread the wealth around and end interest (409k) and rent (realestate ownership) income.  The really funny thing is the silly English still think that they won WWII.  Shush    :-X don't tell them it's a lie.

yup.  they are pretty much the = of our low income housing except that they are owned by the government.  they are available for seniors and low income people.  i will say that they tend to be kept up better than our low income housing, but much of the upkeep is done by the council at tax payers expense.  council taxes for most people are quite high.  they would be like our city or town taxes and cover all kinds of stuff including council housing.

we have some brits on here.  maybe they can fill in the info better?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
