I don't understand why banks would be opposed to having bankrutcy judges modify loan terms.  I think of it this way;  if there are 8 million families facing foreclosure and loans are modified to market value so people stay in their homes, wouldn't that significantly help our economy?  It has been...

I was hoping that banks had improved their attitudes and would start working with homeowners to keep them in their homes, but it doesn't seem to me like much has changed.  I still feel like either they or the loan servicers are more eager to foreclosure which only contributes to the problems in t...
