Fla. homeowners want solutions, not bickering
GOP rivals have few answers on foreclosure crisis
Gone are the “For Sale’’ signs that sprouted like weeds in yard after yard along the streets of Magnolia Green, one of the scores of subdivisions that rose in recent years in the Sunshine State’s once-booming Osceola County. But other signs of the devastating housing bust remain: Vacant and darkened homes with wilted flower beds surrounded by crusty lawns. In homes that remain occupied, homeowners like Jose Cruz lament lost jobs, lost hope and an American Dream that went awry. Cruz, a registered Republican, doubts anyone can help - not even the men who want his vote next Tuesday.
