Whoever thought it up was a genius. Imagine charging a dollar or more for something that costs about 3˘ to produce. Capitalism at it's finest!

Medicare Part D was a mistake, but would have been passed eventually by the Democrats. The cost of Part D is trivial compared to Obamacare.
Now, do you want to dwell on the mistakes of the past or attack current problems?
Obamacare was funded.

Part D was not.

Of course, to you right whiners, adding to the debt under Bush was not an issue at all.

It's all here davey, open your eyes and see the truth:

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."
The banks and mortgage cos. didn't give a shit, F and F[read the taxpayers} was on the hook for the defaults.
No bank is going to loan millions and billions if their money is on the line.
Wise up.
Banks might have lowered rates or reduced down payments, but borrows still had to prove they could make the payments.

Any bank at anytime could make a bad loan & sell it to Fannie/Freddie. So why didn't they? Why do you think it would only be CRA loans? It shows your argument to be stupid.

It starts with three Republicans, Graham, Bailey, Leach.

It was investment houses getting into the housing market by buying questionable mortgages & bundling them to create investments. These investments were quite popular & created a demand for mortgages.

None had anything to do with the CRA.

Republicans opened the gates & then sat back & watched what should have been a housing problem become the driving force to becoming a near financial meltdown.

When you right whiners start blaming the CRA, you just probe how uneducated & uninformed you are.

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.
I get it.

If only we allowed banks to discriminate.

Typical right whiner thinking at ts best.

The plain truth is that breathing smoke from burning plant material isn't good for you, whether it's from tobacco, pot, wood or anything else. However, millions have gotten more smoke in their lungs from things like camp fires, car exhausts and barbeque's than they ever would from second hand cigarette smoke.
If anything should be worried about, it's the exhaust from IC engines in our cars, trucks and buses.. Kills me to see some doofus jogging down a busy street, huffing and puffing, sucking in vehicle exhaust.

How about we just go back to days of ACCOUNTABILITY-when banks etc based their financial decisions on MERIT, logistics and ability.

Toss out ALL the other poliTICal INcorrectness pandering, and just base everything on REALITY again.

Because it's discrimination, AGAINST those possessing some actual MERIT, for institutions to exist any other way.

To all my liberal thinkers, liberal meaning: free thinkers, I know it's impossible to not respond to these old america dreamers, but try not to respond to their right wingers. They're still in disbelief of the good old fashion ass whooping their nominee took. Dude yesterday said we bought everything to do with Obama. Well they definitely bought that ass whooping & it was expensive!
