Bail Out Wrong People?

Instead of bailing out the businesses and banks, what if the $700 billion went to paying off all the mortgages for the homeowners? Wouldn't that solve both the economic and individual problems? I think if taxpayers truly had a choice, we'd vote to have our neighbors' houses paid off.

Why would it be appropriate to use public funds to pay off the mortgage for someone who chose to borrow heavily to buy a house, as opposed to others who saved up to purchase a house? Wouldn't that reward the spenders at the expense of the savers?
