Ah, the Swamp Queen is doing what she does best: Throwing the weight of government around to intimidate private businesses and shake em down.
The Congressional Black Caucus is trying to help by organizing job fairs across the country. Congresswoman Maxine Waters also wants to help by putting more pressure on the big banks to help with mortgages.
If they dont come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes that theyve worked so hard for, were going to tax them out of business, said Waters.

“Congresswoman Maxine Waters also wants to help by putting more pressure on the big banks to help with mortgages. “
In other words, keep doing the same thing that lead to the subprime mortgage collapse, only FASTER!
This should send a lot of money into any challenger’s coffers (Dem challengers included). How much has Maxine lent to her hard-working constituents?
I only wish our side had a Maxine type.
More people going to Hell courtesy of MaxiPad Waters?
Except her husband’s bank, of course.......
Maxine is one dumb cluck.
Anyone who WAS NOT a Democrat in Congress would be charged with EXTORTION and BRIBERY for threats like that.
I want to hear what the Congressional White Caucus has to say about this.
This woman is an idiot.
How’s about we do this: Lets go back to 1965 and the way we did mortgages back there. 20% down. Spotless credit. 10 years at your job. And stick to the ratios.
We won’t have no problems payin’ da mortgages then.
The CRA was the worst law ever passed in the history of this country. Even worse than prohibition.
Having a home is not a “right.”
The woman needs to grow up. What’s she got against banks? If we let these people, they will wreck our economy and our country. Believe it.
No way that’s ever going to happen. Maxine’s district is comprised entirely of career-welfare recipients. The people in her district think and act just like her, which is why she keeps getting re-elected. (The Left Coast version of Dead Ted Kennedy.)
She doesn’t “lend” them anything. She “gives” using the power of the IRS. Spreads around.
GOP runs the House
Nice of the librat to acknowledge that taxes are actually a punishment.
F that shriveled up old B....., she’s not in charge of anything and we need to keep it that way.
Communists want to end all private industry. It’s kind of what they do.
The DNC has a long history of taxing businesses out of the US.
Maxine’s replaced Nazi Pelosi as the face of the Democrats in Congress. This can’t be bad. The Republicans should egg her on.
The Congressional White Cacus would say that their friend Maxine is one of the Obammy’s “smart people.” Vote for Maxine!
So why do all these big banks give more money to libs?
I don’t understand these CEO’s anymore. Total cowards.
Isn’t that what got us into this mess in the first place? Why don’t these people buy homes they can afford instead of expecting OTHER PEOPLE to subsidize some fancy $300,000 home in the burbs with a pool, etc?? My husband and I will be moving into a less expensive home in the not too distant future...all so we can help pay these jokers’ mortgage. Spread the wealth, Maxine...spread the wealth.
I wasn’t raised to talk like this, but I really hate this woman and others like her.
“Maxines district is comprised entirely of career-welfare recipients.”
Welfare recipients buy groceries & gas, and even work under the table; things are worse in all three categories for them. She may face a primary challenge from a welfare queen who promises all the goodies, without any track record of supporting the Kenyan King who failed to deliver.
