Teaser rate ARMs didn't seem like a bad idea at the time, because that really friendly mortgage broker who cared so much about you said when the rate reset, you could just take out another ARM and also take out more cash!

Thank you mortgage brokers of America! Thank you Alan Greenspan! Thank you commission-junkie realtors! Thank you corrupt appraisers! Thank you greedy homebuilders! And thank you Americans for being so gullible, greedy and financially ignorant.
