Moral hazard - people will be more tempted to not live up to their obligations...
and, in the future, who in their right mind would lend mortgage money to anyone who just might not EVER be collectible?

There are plenty of regional/local banks and credit unions that made mortgage loans to creditworthy buyers with down payments, and held the loans themselves. By and large they are doing ok.
It's the international investment banks that bought big bowls of mortgage souffles that are in trouble.
Or rather, it's us taxpayers who in trouble, since it's the big banks who have the Bush/Paulson/Obama/Geithner blackmail photos stashed away.

Uhuh. And now they can just smoke "medical" dope in California, Colorado, etc - and avoid thinking about it.
The process of subversion continues... while predators hidden in the tall grass sniff the air and patiently wait.

Not a bad thing. Then more people won’t get loans they cannot repay.
