Today the Marc Steiner Show continued its coverage of the housing crisis with a look at government proposals to help those who are in danger of losing their homes. President Obama and Baltimore City lawmakers are both offering plans they say will help keep Americans in their homes despite the dismal economy. Our guests offered critiques of those plans and shared their own visions for how the country can best help homeowners stay afloat.
