US House votes to kill main Obama foreclosure aid

WASHINGTON, March 29 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of
Representatives voted on Tuesday to kill President Barack
Obama’s signature program to help struggling homeowners avoid
foreclosure, although the bill is unlikely to clear the
Senate.

A bill to terminate the program was approved on a 252-170
vote. It was the last in series of four measures brought
forward by newly empowered House Republicans to end government
assistance for homeowners hurt by the housing crisis.
