I have over 4 years self employed good history with excellent credit score, I start looking for loan to buy additional investment house. Up-to-date, October 2012, I failed to get any loan that will be less than 70% of the house value i.e. I'm willing to pay more than 30% down payment. I challenged few banks / brokers and realized again, that the Obama administration is blocking from small /mid businesses the loans option. When searching the internet I learn more and more that I'm not alone in my situation so, start digging why is that? I got a very clear answer from great documental movie that published not long time ago name: "2016 Obama". I highly recommend you watching this movie, it is not political movie but a result of very famous writer deep investigation. I'm begging you, please don't vote for Obama, put aside emotions, look at the macro, USA need someone to take us out from the bad economy Obama brought us, Romney is our hope! Ask yourself: in the past 4 years, what Obama did for us - "We the people"? nothing but dept and more dept..... No more punishment, no more lies, Say NO to Obama! I'm a simple concern American. Thank you
