Wow. Bipartisanship has reared its pretty head to offer a lifeline to homeowners facing foreclosure. CNN reports that Congress is fast tracking a bill to offer $15 billion of aid to the totally screwed. "The package contains funding to help borrowers refinance unaffordable loans and help boost activity in neighborhoods with properties in foreclosure. It also includes a big business tax break for homebuilders, as well as a new tax credit and deduction for homeowners and home buyers." A vote on the bill may come as soon as next week. [CNN Money]
