Avoiding the Auction Block Season 1, Episode 3 Aug 6, 2008 Paid

(11/15/2011) Despite new federal measures to slow foreclosures, thousands of homes continue to be auctioned off every month. One of the hardest hit states is California. We travel to the Golden State to meet with homeowners desperate to avoid the auction block...then we track their loans all the way to Wall Street where investors have lost their shirts thanks to loans that started in California. Also, a look at how your taxpayer dollars have been spent in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Commission on Wartime Contracting estimates that between $30 and $60 billion have been lost to contract waste and fraud -- that's approx $12 million every day for the past 10 years! Some examples of that waste in Iraq include: a $227 million water treatment plant that has never worked correctly; a $300 million power plant in Kabul which is seldom used because it's too expensive for the Afghan government to operate; and a $40 million prison that was abandoned before it was finished. And, a tale of two cities; Joplin, MO, and Greensburg, KS, both rebuilding after killer tornadoes.
