Obama Stimulus plan - Mortgage rate of 4.0%?

I read this article http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090206/ap_on_go_co/st...

saying that the votes didn't go through for the lower mortgage rate of 4.0 as part of Obama Stimulus plan.

If you read/heard of this stimulus plan, please share with me.

I am thinking of refinancing my mortgage with a lock in rate of 4.8% + 1 point that would expired end of this week. Should I go with this rate? What's the chances that the 4.0% rate stimulus plan would go through?

Update:

LGuz

the $15,000 tax credit do not apply existing home mortgage.

    This was the minority idea in Congress. They wouldn't approve the stimulus bill unless this 4% rate was included. It did not work. It was not included. If things get worse in the economy, we might see this done at 3.5% fixed for 30 years..

    My friend, take the rate you have! There is practically no chance of the 4% subsidized rate passing. Remember the saying, "A bird in the hand..."

    Sorry for earlier response, I overlooked the refi part. That changes everything :-) I suspect there will be some incentives, hopefully we will hear from Geithner today or tomorrow about it.

    It is still in negotiation. 4% rates will be a subsidized number. Unbelievable. If you get the 4%, be prepared to make up the difference in other ways. Nothing is for free.
