25. It's an exaggeration to say they help only the rich

I'm getting sick of that self pitying meme.

The middle class has tax breaks on mortgages, exemptions for children, education, etc. There is some social safety net and will be more with Obamacare. The "rich" don't like any of that.

There were several laws to help people during the housing crisis.

There are laws against discrimination, laws for consumers meant to protect them from big corporate shenanigans.
