On Saturday George Bush signed the bill our Congress passed to bail out people's bad mortgages.
I made the mistake of buying only the amount of house I could afford and no more.
I made the mistake of borrowing a mortgage that had a fixed rate of interest.
I made the mistake of arranging payments that I could pay and paying them on time.
I made the mistake of paying off my home.
As usual our Government prefers those citizens who do not honor their obligations over those that do.
My punishment will be to pay the mortgages of those who through ignorance or dishonesty procured mortgages they could not pay for houses that neither they nor I could afford.
