    I don’t think they should limit it to first time home purchasers. What about the people that struggled to buy a home when no tax credits were given? These are the people that deserve some kind of break instead of the people out there getting freebies since the economy is supposedly teet’s up.

    I took advantage of the first time home purchase credit for 2008. Orginally they had it set up to pay it back over the next 15years but do you know if that has been retroactive to the new provision where it might not have to be paid back?
