TAMPA (FOX 13) -
Angela Agrippa is an emotional wreck.
"This home just means everything to us, it's just going to be so hard to walk away," she said.
That is her worst nightmare, but it could happen in just four months.
Agrippa bought her home back in 1991 for $61,000. She took a couple of home loans out on it over the years. But the sale of a rental property helped her pay off much of those loans years later.

“Young fool. Only now, at the end, do you understand... You have paid the price for your lack of vision!”
Lady, stop treating your home like a piggy
bank you can take money out of without paying it back
Sell for $140K and buy down or rent
Stop begging the government to dig you out of your own stupidity
how many homes and properties does she own??
Can’t she sell it?
january 21st..the same day Obama gets evicted from the peoples house..... coincidence?
Boo hoo! Reality sucks, doesn’t it, lady?
Are you STILL better off today than you were four years ago?
Oh please Mr Prezy, take $ from someone and give it to me!
Are you liistening,Miss Agrippa?????
She ain’t black so Odumbo won’t care.
But I HAD to have that BMW and the flat screen and the spa treatments and the breast implants and the designer shoes and the and the and the.
Her share of the Obama debt would have paid off the mortgage.
She hasn't paid her mortgage for HOW LONG??? And she will be able to live in her house RENT FREE until JANUARY 21!!!!!!
And WE are PAYING for her BACK MORTGAGES!!! PLUS she got tons of money in those two mortgages.....wher did THAT money go to???
I really am quite ticked at these SPONGES!!!
Save me, Great Sky Obama, you’re my only hope!
Stopa says that's because the government pays the banks back for foreclosures, plus back money owed.
He says smaller banks are more likely to modify loans because they don't get the insurance from the government."
She's not underwater, didn't max out her equity but all the Fed mortgage assistance programs are nothing but show if the banks can just foreclose and collect any losses from the gubmint without lifting a finger and as in this case pick up the lady's equity as a bonus. Solid plan. For the banksters. Sheesh.
Uhhh . . . take a pill?
Yeah, he’ll save it. For someone else. A Son of Barack. Or a Daughter of Barack.
But of course you had to have all those things! Your house meant sh!t....except another way to get mo dollas!
Like Reagan said “....government IS the problem.”
Starts off with promoting home buying, allowing (and almost forcing) banks to give mortgages to high-risk people, and giving the banks incentive to do so. Then, when the mortgages don’t get paid, the gov’t comes to the rescue of the banks (too big to fail) with a rescue plan.
Of course if the gov’t would just Leave It ALL Alone things would have worked out for the better. Except for the part where the gov’t gains more power over the banks, the home owner and the taxpayer with each new “rescue” plan.
These are not misguided or failed policies - they are ALL part of the plan.
What’s with the quotation marks?
I don’t usually point out such things—if I did so consistently, I couldn’t get anything else done. (Agrippa, you’re also missing a comma.)
I do so now, though, because misused quotation marks can lead to interesting interpretations, and this is one of those times.
Same here. Two mortgages. Both paid off. Raised a family and made sacrifices. Still making sacrifices just to make ends meet with hussein's inflation.
She could sell that nice ring she's wearing. Looks like she spends a pretty penny at the salon getting her hair and nails done. How much does she invest in makeup and clothes a month? Nice outside plantings she didn't need to buy. She could be going through her belongings to have a garage sale. I see she has a file on her HOA - who buys in those neighborhoods? How much did it cost to put up that tarp? She and her 6 year old could easily downsize from a house that size to an apartment.
“The purpose of the modern Democratic Party is to shield its constituents from the consequences of their bad behavior.”
Still looking for a source on that quote.
This woman is delirious if she thinks Obama cares about saving her house. Obama has a half brother living in a CARDBOARD HUT in Kenya making $12 a MONTH and Obamessiah hasn’t given him a DIME to ease his suffering! And she thinks Obama is going to come to her rescue? He is too busy preparing to live in a 35 MILLION DOLLAR MANSION in Hawaii that his friends are going to GIVE him and Moochell to be bothered with some American peasant and her problems.
LOL! Great minds think alike.
“her partner of 11 years” died. No insurance/ no marriage obviously. Her house is not under water. A straight refi could have been done, it looks like. Is she looking for more $$ from her home ATM?
Oh! Look at this thread!
It’s an interesting and timely topic. The OP correctly attributed his source as well.
I bet this draws a lot of attention and gets a lot of views.
I’ll give it a bump!
FWIW, she could have used an exclamation point right after "Obama" instead of the "missing" comma. ;-)
Let’s see, $61,000 in 1991. 20% down would be a loan of around $49,000. If she got a 20 year loan, and made her payments on time, her balance is
Use your home as an ATM, and that’s what you get! Now bite the bullet for your stupid actions and seel your home.....
“With other people’s money”
In 2012 Princess Leia is more Jabba the Hut-like, and votes for Obama.
Yes, that was one of the possibilities that came to my mind.
Then again, if I were in the position of making that sign (never mind how I got to the point of "OBAMA SAVE MY HOME" in the first place), I wouldn't have used the quotation marks.
If I shared that mindset, I'd want to stress the idea that this really is My Home, no matter what's technically true. The usage also risks looking like the work of someone who doesn't know how to use quotation marks--there's enough of that ignorance and confusion around to sustain several websites.
