Force borrowers to have 20% down before entering the mortgage loan contract. Avoid the PMI altogether.

I agree.Put 20-25% down so you have a vested interest in the property.Have a good paying job that can support a mortgage. Have money in the bank in case you lose your job.This was the way it was 15 years ago.Not too many people got into trouble years ago because they can actually "afford" to buy a house.

In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by
federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob
Corker (R-Tenn) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5%
down payment in order to qualify. His proposal was rejected 57-42
on a party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn)
explained, "passage of such a requirement would restrict home
ownership to only those who can afford it."

Chris Dodd Paraphrased " Requiring a 5% down payment would restrict home
ownership to only those who can afford it."
Now that would be a great quote from one of our finest..
