From the WSJ: Axelrod: Obama Has 'Solid' Housing Plan

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," senior adviser David Axelrod said the plan that President Barack Obama plans to announce on Wednesday will aim to provide immediate help to homeowners who are "right on the edge" of foreclosure, and ultimately help in "raising home values that have been plummeting."

Mr. Obama plans to unveil his housing plan during a visit to Phoenix. As part of his swing through western states, he is set to top in Denver Tuesday, when he will sign the $787 billion economic-stimulus plan just passed by Congress.

Mr. Axelrod provided few details of the housing plan, but said a government investment of $50 billion to $100 billion to fund foreclosure prevention "is obviously a necessary part." He promised that the plan would contain "a lot of aspects."
I hope "a lot of aspects" includes "a lot of details".
