As some get mortgage rescue, others ask: Why don’t I get a break?

I read with great interest your front-page article about homeowners who have been given a break by mortgage companies as a result of pressure from the government (“Homeowners get a break,” Oct. 7). Once again, as has happened over and over in the past four years, I find myself wondering where the “breaks” are for those of us in the so-called middle class that our elected officials keep saying they are trying to help.

My husband and I have always played by the rules. We have never felt entitled to anything we didn’t earn, and have worked hard to provide for our four children in a way that would give them what they need, while teaching them the value of earning for themselves.
