The vast majority, if not all, of the people who received mortgages they couldn't repay, applied for such mortgages expecting to flip the house before they ran out of money. They aren't victims but gamblers who drove house prices out of reach for everyone else. They do not deserve our sympathy.

This was needed 10 years ago. As of 2010, when I got my mortgage, meeting the requirements were like being micromanaged by a control freak on crack. They literally wanted a full snapshot of my finances every single day. If one single deposit was made in my bank account that did not come from pay roll. I had to get a copy of it, produce notarized letters explaining where it came from and why I deposited it into my bank. My wife deposited a check from our daughter and gave her cash for the check. We had to make a receipt of the cash changing hands, and get it notarized, like were a check cashing store. Why can't you cash your daughters check with out it being the Spanish inquisition? It was really stressful, it almost felt like they were screwing with you, and they had no intention at all of ever approving the loan. Every single morning when I would wake up, expecting positive news I would go through the same routine again that consumed most of my day the day before. I was working from home, so a lot of it, was easy. I wonder how working people in a demanding job ever close on a house.

Now of course this was for a FHA loan, perhaps they mean, they will make banks get as rigorous on all mortgages.
