    As long as banks stand to make more profit when the borrower defaults. What motivation does the bank have to renegotiate a loan. Let's say someone has paid 6 years and 2 months withouth fail and falls on hard times with only 10 months to go. Would a bank re-negotiate the last part of the loan to help the borrower or foreclose in order to profit from the hedge? Banks should be motivated to help those they are lending too.

    If the Health Reform isn't solved soon it may not need it at all because who is to say we(people) will even be here in the year 2014. So messing around with all the hoopla isn't doing anyone any good. We may only have till 2012 to help anyone with their healthcare.

    Hi Caroline,

    There're quite a lot of us who follow Community Activist Mark S. Allen and we'd like to be able to view his interview from this morning. Please give us a link to view this portion of this morning's show.

    Sen. McCaskill is all too quick to bid the big banks farewell if they take their operations overseas. If they were to do that, investors & their monies would go with them, thereby producing more stress on the US economy.
    This is just another example of Washington's lack of understanding in relation to Wall St & investing.

    Suggestion from an MD (especially with regard to procedures and surgeries requiring Anesthesia serivices). Ask the anesthetist if their is a generic supply charge specific for the type of procedure OR if each vial of medicine, bag of IV fluids, plastic syringe, etc. is going to be counted after the procedure and charged for if it has been opened. If it is the latter system, inform the Anesthetist that you would appreciate a cost-sensitive anesthetic (Sodium Pentothal instead of Propofol, morphine instead of dilaudid, need-driven usage of style-point type drugs such as expensive non-generic, post-op nausea drugs in patient with no history of post-op nausea, and costly off-label "experimentation" with expensive medicines). Caution: the CRNA / Anesthesiologist may be offended – but some will embrace it as a worthwile challenge.

    Day by day, Iran approaches the attainment of nuclear weapons. All attempts to harness the international community to act against this development-in the form of sanctions- have, to this point, failed. The potential for sanctions to be successful is diminishing. And the possibility of a military option now comes to the fore. The U.S. is opposed to this option, while Israel, being the focus of Iranian hostility, sees military action to halt Iran as, perhaps, a necessary step. There is no 'good' way to proceed. If Iran acquires a nuclear capability, the world will suffer a terrible fate. But, military action can lead to chaos. I hope that the U.S. will act quickly to draw up meaningful sanctions against Iran. Time is of the essence!

    I feel the American public has the right to see how Goldman profited from its short and long positons in the mortgage "game." However, I don't feel they should be used as a political pinata for being smart. Yes, much of the bailout money ultimately ended up at Goldman via AIG and the like. This should be known. However, you can't blame them for being smart. If they didn't misinform potential "betters," they did nothing illegal.

    The liberal media is absolutely biased in their reporting about immigration reform. This is not just a Hispanic problem. I know of MANY white Australians, Kiwis, South Africans, Brits and Canadians who come here on visitor or student visas and overstay their visas expressly for the purpose of work. In my industry, I have to compete with these violators who take my job for 1/3 the normal industry standard pay. But you do not hear anything about that?
