Real estate attorney Sam Tamkin responds to a reader who is upset by hearing about taxpayer dollars being used to help people stay in their homes.

I don’t mind paying taxes for things that I can see the use for: roads, public safety, garbage collection. And I don’t mind helping people who can’t help themselves. But I want to see the banks take some responsibility, too.

What do you think? How should the banks be working with the borrowers facing foreclosure?
