Rogers: Group secretly working on budget fix

Source: Livingston County Press

A bipartisan committee of Congress is meeting in secret to prevent members and supporters of both major parties from influencing how to avoid automatic budget cuts Jan. 1, U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, (8th MI)R-Brighton, said last week.

By law, the president Jan. 2 will be required to order the automatic cuts, a process known as sequestration, if at least $1.2 trillion in budget-deficit reduction isn't identified by Congress by that time.

Among the victims of the cuts would be the U.S. military.

The Budget Control Act of 2011 followed the failure of a congressional supercommittee to outline $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions over the next decade.

Disabled WWII and Korean War Veteran Faces Eviction, Freddie Mac Refuses to Return Calls

A WWII and Korean War Veteran, who had a stroke last year is facing eviction, along with his wife and disabled daughter. Mrs. Scott has tried to contact Freddie Mac to ask them to help her, but they will not return her calls.

“We don’t want a handout,” Sally Scott said from the porch of her Creve Coeur home. “We just want a fair deal, and we want someone to actually talk to us.”

Sally said she has never spoken to a representative from Freddie Mac over the phone or in person, even when they put her home into foreclosure several months ago

SBS who services their loan, said if they could talk Freddie Mac into rescinding the Foreclosure, they would work something out with the loan. Freddie Mac was bailed out by taxpayer dollars at over $120 billion! I think they owe it to this Veteran to give them a damn phone call!!
