Help people know what to expect

A number of people have told me that they have voted for the http://bit.ly/TreasuryConsumersBillOfRights today, but unlike Thursday the number of votes have not been changing, they are stuck on 7. I have been checking after each person said they voted, so it's not like there are mystery people voting the proposal down each time exactly simultaneously.

Have the rules for participation been changing? I recommend not... more »

Spread the word!

You need to market this by advertising on all of your bureau web sites internally for the employees and externally for the public. Perhaps management should bring it up at meetings too. As a small time employee, I was not aware of this brilliant concept until today.

Your comments on our Open Government Plan

The Mortgage plans

We have seen program after program fail - in my opinion because it favors servicers and is voluntary and they have been hustling the public ever since.....unfortunately all with your support. THE TRADITIONAL PROGRAMS DO NOT AND WILL NOT WORK. We must think out of the box - Congress/Senate has been sitting on their hands afraid to make any moves or at the very minimum hold hearings from regular people.

Please look in... more »

Secretary Tim Geithner


Dear Secretary Geithner:

I am a home and small rental property owner who has been hard hit by the banking crisis. I cannot get a loan despite having a credit score over 800. I have been forced to put property on the market and sell for any price to stay solvent.

This is how I believe we can fix the housing mortgage... more »

Suggestion Program

Treasury Department should have an easy to find suggestion program that anyone can submit ideas to. The suggestion program should allow for awards which could be a percentage of the first year's cost savings. Awards would only be given to suggestions that are approved and amount is based on a small percentage of the savings (I have seen 3%-25% in various programs)so government is saving funding and most suggestions... more »

Bail out Responsible Homeowners.

The housing market needs to fall and prices need to be realigned with what the population is earning. Although prices seem like they've fallen quite a bit already, this is only true if you are comparing them to what they were at the height of the boom. The boom was a result of many irresponsible groups of people who allowed overpriced houses to be sold to under qualified buyers. By implementing incentives and strategies... more »

Transmodal concentric timezoning

Please don't think me pretentious however, the creative dynamics behind this theorum of collective economic and/or daily commercial commuting is far to elaborate to merely convey in such short forum. I can assure you that I have studied, contemplated, and performed near return analysis on these intertwined formuli if you will. If given the proper resources and time (approx) 12-15 (due to seasonal variables in travel modes)... more »

saxon mortgage/HAMP program

I have issues with the way that some mortgage companies are abusing the government help. They are taking money and stating that they are going to help the homeowners under this HAMP plan with the way they are servicing the way the do with Trail Payment Plan. I feel if you are going to make the home owners commit to signing a binding document such as the 3 month Trail payment program and states that they have to keep the... more »

Other OpenGov Ideas & Information Resources

Rather than post each of my "OpenGov" Ideas at 27 different websites, I have posted them at the GSA's website (since they are in the forefront of the OpenGov initiative). So, by this notice, the members of the OpenGov Team for your agency have been informed of those ideas. (At least, now, you can't say you were unaware of them.)
