You believe just about anything rather than admit Bush nearly killed this country.

Banks thought Freddie & Fannie held an advantage in the marketplace.

They employed their puppet, Bush, to rein them in. That "reform" was to take the oversight of F & F away from Congress & put it in the White House!!!!!

My God, if Obama tried anything like that you right whiners would have a fit.

But when Bush tried it, you idiots loved it. Good thing even Republicans in Congress told Bush to forget that one.

Reform?- you should go into comedy.

The Nature and the Origin
of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis
There has been a long term American policy of promoting home ownership. This entailed making the financing of home purchases as easy as possible. Various financial institutions were set up over time to make the securing of a mortgage quick and convenient. There once were Savings and Loan Associations that were savings institutions which could only invest in home mortgages. Fannie Mae (the Federal Nation Mortgage Association FNMA) was set up in 1938 to provide a secondary market for home mortgages. This meant that if a bank granted a mortgage to someone and later the bank needed funds the bank could readily sell the mortgage to Fannie Mae. However, in order for lending institutions to have access to the secondary mortgage market of Fannie Mae they had to abide by Fannie Mae's rules.
In the past Fannie Mae prohibited the lenders it was dealing with to engage in the practice of red lining. Red Lining meant that a bank would refuse to finance a home purchase in neighborhoods it consider high risk even if the prospective borrowers were themselves good credit risks. In part, this was because the bank did not want, in the event of default and foreclosure, to become the owner of property in a risky neighborhood. The deeper roots of the problem go back to the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.
In the 1990's under the administration of Franklin Raines, a Clinton Administration appointee, Fannie Mae began to demand that the lending institutions that it dealt with prove that they were not redlining. This meant that the lending institutions would have to fulfill a quota of minority mortgage lending. This in turn meant that the lending agencies would have to lower their standards in terms of such things as down payments and the required incomes. These subprime borrowers would be charged a higher interest rate. Having put the lending agencies into the position of granting subprime mortgages Fannie Mae then had to accept lower standards in the mortgages it purchased. That set the ball rolling. If a bank granted a mortgage to a borrower that was not likely to successfully pay off the mortgage then all the bank had to do was to sell such mortgages to Fannie Mae. The banks typically earned a loan origination fee when the mortgage was granted. The lending agencies could then make substantial profits dealing in subprime mortgages.
Because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made a market for subprime mortgages the lenders did not have to worry about of the soundness of the mortgage contract they wrote. Thus the lenders could write the mortgages as adjustable interest rate mortgages knowing full well that an upturn in the interest rates could easily throw the borrower into insolvency. For example, when the interest rate is 6 percent the mortgage payment for a 30-year $200,000 mortgage is $1199 per month. If the interest rate goes up to 7 percent the mortgage payment would increase by $131 per month, an 11 percent increase. For many of the subprime borrowers living on the edge of insolvency this would be enough to push them over the edge. The guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them.
So, banks not being allowed to discrimanate caused the mess?

Really?

This is your argument?

"real dumb"
Face the facts, George Bush is not a conservative. In 8 years he managed to increase the national debt by about 5 trillion. He is/was a piker, president nobama, he increased the debt by six trillion in 4 years, he will increase the debt by another 6 trillion or so in the next 4 years.
His answer, increase taxes on those who succeed, prosper and hire folks. I have ask you a number of times, but being the coward you are I will ask one more time, not expecting an answer, why should anyone pay a higher or lower Federal Income tax rate than you do. NO BS now, why are you special and deserve a lower tax rate than your fellow American's.
Peace

I love it when you right whiners throw Bush under the bus after kissing his ass & worshiping his feet for 8 years.

You are so f*cking stupid you think if you give the CEO of Apple a tax cut that he will hire more people.

This is because you are stupid, ignorant, & uninformed

For the unpteenth time, we all pay from the same F*cking chart.

Learn how to use that chart someday & maybe you will cease to be so naive & uninformed.

If you make $50k taxable, Bill Gates pays the same rate on his first $50k as you pay on yours..

What is not fair about that?

But hey, what do I expect from an Anti-American POS like you who thinks supporting his country is being punished.

The List....

House Republican leaders used a secret criteria list to decide which conservatives to purge from powerful House committees, Breitbart News has learned. As this time, it appears they will keep the criteria list hidden from the public, too. Spokespeople for members of House GOP leadership have refused to discuss details about the list on the record with press.

Because GOP Leadership won't discuss the list, it’s unclear what specific criteria the list contained and how much of a role it played in the conservative purge. It’s also unclear which member of House Republican leadership initiated this process.

In remarks to the Heritage Foundation’s Bloggers Briefing on Tuesday, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp confirmed the existence of such a list.

“We’ve heard from multiple sources that someone walked in with a list of votes and said if you didn’t reach a particular scorecard of what was considered the right vote – which by the way, in most cases, was not the conservative position – then [they said]‘we’re going to have to remove you from the committee,’” Huelskamp said.

“All that took place behind closed doors, which is again a problem with Washington, D.C.– whether it’s the budget negotiations, whether it’s everything else, it’s usually done behind closed doors," he explained. "I think, as conservatives, this is where we can win: We’ve got to be willing and able to talk about things in public instead of being afraid of actual public scrutiny.”

Huelskamp later told Breitbart News he thinks House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Whip Kevin McCarthy owe it to the American people to be transparent about this decision making process – and that they should publicly release the list.

“In the name of transparency and openness, they most certainly should release the criteria,” Huelskamp said in an email.“Republican leadership promised America a new era of transparency – they should deliver on it.”

A federal flat sales tax of 1 percent-would be far more effective than ANY other tax that could be implemented.
