President's "Making Home Affordable" Program Not Enough to Stop Foreclosures

According to this Inman News article, Negative Equity: a housing timebomb, President Obama's Making Home Affordable Program (MHA)  will only have a small impact on reducing foreclosures because it igores one of the key drivers of foreclosures: negative equity.  The article also mentions that investors being excluded is also a problem with MHA.

As usual, I predicted this before the "real media".  Per my blog post on March 5, 2009 regarding the new government foreclosure programs, since investors are excluded and many people have negative equity in their homes the government foreclosure programs (now labeled MHA) will not be successful in significantly reducing foreclosures.
