Top issue as Florida prepares to vote: housing; is the worst over?

As Florida prepares to vote next week–perhaps making a key decision in the Republican nominating race–one of the top issues driving voters will be housing. Florida is one of the hardest-hit states in the nation when it comes to foreclosures and unemployment. Stuart Miller, CEO of Lennar, says "if we want the economy to stabilize and recover, we need to see housing come back."

Miller believes stabilization is–ever so slightly–coming into the equation. "Demand is just starting to come back."

    The three stooges and Dr. Paul ? Oh wow did I laugh and that debate was funny.Now go research what's going on at the World Economic Forum and let's go build a moon house with Newt.Geithner..USA grew 2.8 %,very high levels of poverty and very high levels of inequality and erosion in peoples confidence in their upward mobility. Reparing damages of devastating financial crisis. People have to much debt and unemployment high,housing and construction weak. Ron Paul For President ! Santorum boxed Romney's ears off on health care and hope Hillary Clinton was watching that debate and she says she hasn't watched the debates.Hillary's health care has been turned into 2000 pages of an Obama executed confused mess and no one even knew what was in it.If Hillary Clinton had been in that debate she'd have sunk em all but do think Ron Paul stands on his own with smart ,common sense solutions.The more ya look at the economy the more sense Ron Paul makes." Ron Paul's 2002 predictions come true." Thanks for your attention to fair coverage and go Ron Paul !
