Here is a quick excerpt from an excellent post on OK, so I'm far from qualifying for the "Bush Plan" (see my post below). It's better that way because I think it's a stinky idea to begin with.

This will only apply to owner occupied properties with at least a 36 month ARM reset period or less. (Mine is a 60 month reset.)

Loans must be originated between 1/1/2005 and 7/31/07. These loans must have reset dates between 1/1/08 and 7/31/10 (Nope, not this one, either.)

The loan must be current (Check)

LTV must be greater than 97 percent (Check)

The borrower must have a FICO score less than 660 (Not in my lifetime!)

The borrower’s FICO score cannot be higher than 10% since the loan's origination date (What does this mean exactly? Maybe "10% higher than at the time of loan origination.")

Each servicer must determine the owner cannot afford higher payments (Would this be the "moral suasion" part mentioned in my previous post?)
