"More Americans, including more minority families, own their own homes than ever before. In June 2002, President Bush challenged the nation to increase the number of minority homeowners by 5.5 million by the end of this decade. Since the President issued his challenge, 2.4 million minority families have joined the ranks of homeowners. The 2007 budget includes increases to several programs that advance the President's goal of creating an ownership society"
I've never much liked Bush the leader. He was governor of Texas for a bit and implemented some crazy educational reforms. Today, the DISD is in financial trouble.
Most of the time, it's probably better for the government to leave things alone. When it does decide to meddle, it helps to have an intelligent meddler.
Another good post from someone who thought this all through.
