I read State Representative Chad Campbell’s populous, socialist tirade (Campbell: Protect the people, not the banks) that was published Dec. 16. Campbell attempts to thwart any effort to avert a future prolonged housing downturn by advocating that the ability to walk away from a mortgage that a borrower is able to pay, will be the default policy in Arizona, forever.
Banks do not vote, but their investors do. Many of my constituents lost capital in their 401(k) due to poor bank performance. Arizona’s “non-deficiency” law is one more way that liberals use the government to redistribute other people’s wealth.
As for Campbell and his inflammatory remarks, I will not respond. I usually stick to a policy that “I will not say anything negative about a person in public unless they are my opponent or a Democrat, up-ticket.” That is definitely not Campbell.
