Foreclosures and Flip-Flopping Dominate Final Florida Faceoff

Sunshine State candidates address housing policy, target guv’s inconsistencies in debate Tuesday night.

On Crist:

Crist: “Being flexible is not a sin.”

Rubio: “I think when you see it as part of political calculation is when people get troubled.”

Meek: “When I hear flip-flops in the hallway, I think it’s the governor walking down the hall.”

On foreclosures:

Rubio: “These plans haven’t worked largely because they’re focused on lowering the interest rates or pushing the period of the loan back.”

Rubio: Says key to fixing the problem is “modifications of principle.” Says it’s cheaper than foreclosure.

Crist: Calls for more regulation of banks, reduction of property taxes. Calls for another “$8,000 first home buyer tax credit.”

Meek: Also calls for tax credit. Says the first thing they need to do is “we need to stop these loan officers from taking 10,000 foreclosure documents all at once … that must be reformed.”
