Of course they were. The Justice Department sought to enforce the fair lending laws. Some believed this to have had a positive impact on banks' willingness to invest in minority neighborhoods.<quoted text>YOU ARE STUPID, THAT MUCH IS QUITE OBVIOUS!
You have heard the talking points, but you simply dont understand them!
Clearly you havent even the basic understanding of what trhe crisis was about!
NO LENDERS WERE PRESSURED....nor can you find ANY lender stating they were pressured. Its a stupid conservative lie, as lies are all conservatives have!
Now google these two words and then get back to me, look up the term "Mortgage Backed Security" and "Consolodated Debt Obligation"
There is a reason conservatives lie....YOU HAVE TO!
However, you can judge whether the Justice Department "enforcing" these laws had a positive impact or not.
