Congresswoman Encourages Squatting in Foreclosed Homes

Congresswoman Encourages Squatting in Foreclosed Homes
Jeff Squires

As the economy continues to spiral downward, a US Congresswoman from Ohio, Marcy Kaptur, is encouraging her constituents to squat in their foreclosed homes. She is advocating that homeowners should simply stay put until the bank “produces the note” that proves it owns the home.
