As the story of Bob and Sally attest, they shouldn't.
The cute and clever film above was produced by Angry Renter. Basically, they're a bunch of apartment-renters who are pissed that while they've been doing the fiscally responsible thing by saving up, the government now wants to tax them to bail out the people who took risky gambles on adjustable-rate mortgages. It's as if the state were to step in and confiscate your lunch money only to give it to some idiots who made losing bets at a racetrack. Or something like that.
Sign the petition to stop the bailout for big banks and home flippers here.
