    This dip$hit in RI is trying to pull the same thing.

  2. Well. this guy you speak about needs to be out on the street with the homeowners…and he will learn what bad behavior is…yes, bad behavior, .he is the perfect example of those in Tallahassee who are corrupt right along with the fraudster bankers…he speaks a whole lot of s*it…give us his name so we can identify this character…and check his background…it is obvious he cares nothing for the people…in that case he should not be in Tallahassee period….I find it rather laughable that he says what the banks have said all along..to the exact words…who is he kidding…tell him to grow a set…his duties are not to work against the people…doesn’t this slimbag know this? Mr. Tarwick’s experience and knowledge makes this guy look like a Tallahassee jerk.

    I got a very similar response from our own district’s Colorado State rep about a year ago at a Rep Nominating Assembly — I was a delegate, and was circulating a draft Resolution asking for sanity in foreclosure process. This rep responded very much as yours did: Families in foreclosure are deadbeats, deserve to be foreclosed, in his view his legislature had “done enough” to “reform” the process, folks owe the money regardless of bank fraud, etc… He lost my support and vote on the spot.

    Met with my state representative today to discuss is yes vote on HB87. He is a staunch tea party republican that serves on the Civil Justice subcommittee. He lumps anybody facing foreclosure into a group that: deserve foreclosure, should have the crisis coming, or should never have purchased property they couldn’t afford, have a moral obligation to pay their mortgage even if banks behaved badly, etc. He said he didn’t care if the bill’s contents might not be legal (ref. Trawick), that the judiciary would have their chance to address that at the appropriate time. His primary focus is to move people through the foreclosure process as quickly and expeditiously as possible with little to no regard for families affected by unemployment, illness, etc. Anyone that truly was taken advantage of, and the only example he could think of was an elderly widow who took out a reverse mortgage, will most certainly be helped by the decisions of Pam Biondi to use the Settlement monies appropriately. I was rather shocked at his views. However, this is how some legislators feel about the foreclosure crisis. Regardless of content, the discussion/argument always came back to a moral one: one should pay their mortgage no matter what and the banks have done no evil (in fact mortgage transactions do not even need to be written; one’s honor to the commitment should suffice).

    I personally vote NO in this poll; my representative stated nothing will change his mind and he will vote yes again if given the opportunity.

        I live in Calif. and my answer is a hard line no, to this brutal legislation in Florida. Keeping fighting, don’t quite. I fought hard against Wells Fargo and accomplished a goal that frightened the hell out of me but I did press on and overcame the barons of the mortgage industry to my success. I do hope this will encourage some to proceed even if the obstacles seem insurmountable push on to the end with goal for each homeowner to be free and clear of the barons power of mortgage fraud. Robert Wade Pro Se Litigant.

      Most home promissory notes say that the monthly payments will go to pay off the interest and the principal on the note. This is a real estate transaction. When the bank sells the note (by placing it with a thousand or so other notes and selling them to a “trust” that sells certificates to investors) in a process called “securitization,” the bank has broken the note and your monthly payments no longer go to pay off the note. Your payments are being sent to investors (a pension-fund in Pennsylvania, a camel-jockey in Arabia, a millionaire in Spain, etc.). This whole process is illegal. Florida legislatures need to uphold the law as it is. Our judges need to enforce the law and stop playing favorites. Florida should remain a JUDICIAL foreclosure state.

      genefl, the point about feeling sorry for loss work, illness etc is correct, that is not their concern, nor should it be. We MUST have legal grounds to fight, which in 99.999% WE DO, we just have to find it, and in all honesty, with a little training, it becomes easy to find. I agree they keep saying “well you have to pay your mortgage” BUT WE MUST SHOW THEM – WHO DO WE OWE THIS MONEY TO?????? WHO is just as important as the issue that we owe it in the first place. I have researched almost 1000 cases now, and have NOT ONCE seen the documentation that money was lent by a plaintiff, nor chain of custody and full accounting, etc. It is all smoke and mirrors done to give the APPEARANCE the entity suing has that right.
      As far as being a TEA party candidate, go to his TEA party backing, explain to them the Unconstitutionality of this bill, lack due process, equal protection, loss property rights, and on and on. If they put pressure on him/her, watch them take notice!!!
