Nearly 1 in 4 Ohio mortgages are underwater, according to numbers from real estate data company Zillow Inc. US Senator Sherrod Brown says that’s why he’s introducing legislation to speed up what’s known as short sales.
Ohio’s U.S. Senators weighed in Monday on what they hope to hear in President Obama’s State of the Union address.
Democrat Sherrod Brown wants the president to focus on jobs, especially in the manufacturing sector. He says the U.S. lost 5 million manufacturing jobs between 2000 and 2010, and has only gained back HALF a million.
As you might expect, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown had positive things to say about President Obama’s 2nd inaugural speech. Brown is a democrat, and said he liked the President’s call for a modern economy that focuses on infrastructure, R&D and education. And he’s hopeful for more progress on expanding the middle class.
