Federal housing offices to close in worst foreclosure areas

Washington (CNNMoney) - Tampa homeowners probably need the government's help more than in other places.

After all, Florida's Tampa Bay reported the nation's third highest rate of foreclosures as recently as May. But those seeking in-person help from the government will be out of luck.

    Is this the sequestor striking again? If it is, Congress is showing it doesn't care.

    The great governor of FL signed a bill that will put foreclosures on the fast track. This will help the banks but not the home owner.

    "Is this the sequestor striking again?"

    Partly. Obama issued an executive order for the agencies to seek efficiencies and ways of cutting costs without destroying services, so this is an instance of the sequester interfering with that process and exacerbating its effects because it requires across-the-board cuts and gives them no discretion in how and where to implement them. The GOP/Teatrolls' austerity mania strikes again. "You're supposed to make all these cuts I demanded without effecting the programs important to me...just the ones important to everyone else (especially "them")!!!!"
