Is this America, I know that if you're not an American you don't have the right to say something against America but, America is like the father figure of the world, the one who "guides" other countries. How are they supposed to be a improving country if America have these kind of people in its administration.

After about 10 minutes of internet research I will answer her question. REO can allow for faster turn around and potentially not take a huge loss or be stuck with a borrower who has not paid mortgage. Example short sale can take 90 to 180 days to complete and requires some difficult negation. RMO around 45 days but can also take longer with more risk to the lender. When some one gets behind on their loan their are no good options just risk management. The problem is FHA loans are responsible for getting individuals loans who have sketchy finances to begin with. It’s like they were set up for failure.

This tough smart lady should be HUD Secretary. She's really knows her stuff. Carson is an intellectual midget who should be sweeping floors at HUD houses. He's dumb!

Rep Katie Porter is awesome.

“Why are so many people losing their homes to foreclosure, and staining their credit scores?”

Uh..........because they haven’t paid their bills for the past 6 months. That was probably the dumbest question I’ve ever heard.
Ben is a sad sad case. Embarrassing the USA, in front of the world.

And sadly, Carson is no more incompetent or corrupt than the rest of Trump's cabinet.
