To the Editor:
Let’s make this simple
Suppose you only had $4,750 left to pay on your mortgage. In one year you would be debt-free!
Now suppose someone came to you and said, “Sign this paper and I’ll cut your mortgage payments by $1,000 a year!”
You read the papers, and you say to the guy, “Wait a second! If I don’t sign these I’m debt-free in a year! If I do sign them, I have to pay $3,750 a year for each of the next 12 years!”
That’s D156’s supposed “savings”, only millions of dollars, not thousands of dollar.
