I've heard it often referred to as--wait for it-- "THE MAGICAL MAGNIFYING MIND" could all this be an attempt to help the home owner & in time cut the cost a little. Yes, I'm reading some are freaked out about higher rates and others not noticing any increase???? Let's all get into the gloom & doom mode like so many people seem to enjoy. This is a GREAT country & I think some people are in thier own peculiar way, maybe trying to help. Just one old farmers thoughts.
I do know one thing--I'm getting sick of the fanatics, whichever side of the coin they think they are doing a service. You are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
