Bring back the renter's credit

Renters have for years been subsidizing homeowners through the mortgage interest deduction. And now there's talk of the taxpayers bailing out homeowners who took on more mortgage than they could afford. Enough is enough, bring back the renter's credit. Responsible folks who lived within their means should be rewarded for their prudence and preventing an even worse disaster. Any government rescue plan should include tax relief for renters.
