The federal government has launched a new website with online tools that will allow a homeowner to determine if they are eligible to participate in the "Making Home Affordable" loan modification and refinancing program.
The site is http://makinghomeaffordable.gov and shares information about how this program works and who is eligible for assistance. This is the same $75 billion program you may have heard of recently in the media.
Before visiting the site you should gather:
Information about your first mortgage, such as your monthly mortgage statement.
Information about any second mortgage or home equity line of credit on the house.
Account balances and minimum monthly payments due on all of your credit cards.
Account balances and monthly payments on all your other debts such as student loans and car loans.

Everything is amazing right now...and nobody is happy.
A Nation of Ingrates?
It's true...we do take for granted the miracle of the world we live in. And maybe he's right. Maybe this current economic situation is just what is needed to have us, as a Nation, show more gratitude for the luxuries our lives afford us.
