State AGs can only push it up to the Supremes. And we know whose side they're on.

Theoretically they could push it to the Supreme Court, but even if the winger justices wanted to do a land grab (Tenth Amendment be damned), I don't think they have the votes.  There isn't any law to work off for the feds as far as the foreclosures go.

The MBSs, perhaps.

Most likely, I think, is SCOTUS will want no part of this.  As you know, SCOTUS's first reaction on an issue the public is well aware of is to run away as quickly as it can.  You'll get them to finally make an opinion known on same-sex marriage before this.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
