If they FHA goes down, where are people going to get mortgages with 3.5% down? People might have to actually save up some cash to buy a house. Oh the humanity!

It's not even 3.5% in states like Massachusetts where you can get an advance on the home buyer tax credit and use that toward the down payment. Maybe once the FHA goes bust they will expand the tax credit to cover a 20% down payment.
