White House Press Secretary Jay Carney immediately released a statement indicating that President Obama's new jobs bill, which nearly passed last month in a vote in the U.S. Senate, was responsible for building confidence in the housing markets.

As another protester put it "Hey if we had to leave anyway, what better time to purchase a new home. I mean with mortgage rates what their are. Oops, I mean.... with those Wall Street Bankers earning outrageous profits, we could take advantage of them by taking out mortgages! Then we can default later. Let's see those fascist pigs try and evict us from our own homes!"
