As I pointed out, many of your so called 'facts' didn't exist (wikipedia) or were right wing writers with a clear agenda (AEI.)
You refuse to address the FRB and their position as I've shown other than to make more claims. So the only one spinning is you.
Facts dont change and why my claim is consistent and that is the Problem with all the Pseudo Liberal Democrats even on here on Topix they try to twist & spin the facts which is why they have problems with Democrats like me that point out the facts and the Pseudo Liberals within the Democrat Party dont like Democrats like me for telling it the way it is since it goes against the status quo besides Democrats from the New Left like LBJ who was a racist.

The Federal Reserve Board has found no connection between CRA and the subprime mortgage problems. In fact, the Board's analysis (102 KB PDF) found that nearly 60 percent of higher-priced loans went to middle- or higher-income borrowers or neighborhoods, which are not the focus of CRA activity. Additionally, about 20 percent of the higher-priced loans that were extended in low- or moderate-income areas, or to low- or moderate-income borrowers, were loans originated by lenders not covered by the CRA. Our analysis found that only six percent of all higher-priced loans were made by CRA-covered lenders to borrowers and neighborhoods targeted by the CRA. Further, our review of loan performance found that rates of serious mortgage delinquency are high in all neighborhood groups, not just in lower-income areas.

and it was the Federal Reserve that requested changes to the CRA if you go back to my link I posted earlier.

In looking for causes of the subprime mortgage crisis, some people have contended that the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) pushed banking institutions to make high-risk mortgage loans in lower-income communities and that such lending led to the crisis. In a November 2008 study, Federal Reserve economists Glenn Canner and Neil Bhutta analyzed mortgage-related data to assess such arguments and found no empirical evidence to support the claim that the CRA was a major contributor to the subprime crisis.

Yes, your position is consistent... regardless of what's provided to you.

You don't point out facts, you point out sources that agree with your position. So, yes, you are consistent.

You claims democrats are twisting things. Yet, I have yet to see you go to a source and prove them wrong... like the FRB.

Instead, you provide links to AEI and wikipedia that point to on where.

From this perspective only, you're factual.

You provided your opinions. I can't twist that since it's personal to you.

OTOH, all you provided were assessments and guess by others. Are they links? Yes indeed? Are they the opinions of the authors? Yes indeed. Does it match to what actually happened?

No.
Yeah

Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis

Fresh off the false and politicized attack on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, today we’re hearing the know-nothings blame the subprime crisis on the Community Reinvestment Act — a 30-year-old law that was actually weakened by the Bush administration just as the worst lending wave began. This is even more ridiculous than blaming Freddie and Fannie.

The Community Reinvestment Act, passed in 1977, requires banks to lend in the low-income neighborhoods where they take deposits. Just the idea that a lending crisis created from 2004 to 2007 was caused by a 1977 law is silly. But it’s even more ridiculous when you consider that most subprime loans were made by firms that aren’t subject to the CRA. University of Michigan law professor Michael Barr testified back in February before the House Committee on Financial Services that 50% of subprime loans were made by mortgage service companies not subject comprehensive federal supervision and another 30% were made by affiliates of banks or thrifts which are not subject to routine supervision or examinations. As former Fed Governor Ned Gramlich said in an August, 2007, speech shortly before he passed away:“In the subprime market where we badly need supervision, a majority of loans are made with very little supervision. It is like a city with a murder law, but no cops on the beat.”

Not surprisingly given the higher degree of supervision, loans made under the CRA program were made in a more responsible way than other subprime loans. CRA loans carried lower rates than other subprime loans and were less likely to end up securitized into the mortgage-backed securities that have caused so many losses, according to a recent study by the law firm Traiger & Hinckley (PDF file here).

Finally, keep in mind that the Bush administration has been weakening CRA enforcement and the law’s reach since the day it took office. The CRA was at its strongest in the 1990s, under the Clinton administration, a period when subprime loans performed quite well. It was only after the Bush administration cut back on CRA enforcement that problems arose, a timing issue which should stop those blaming the law dead in their tracks. The Federal Reserve, too, did nothing but encourage the wild west of lending in recent years. It wasn’t until the middle of 2007 that the Fed decided it was time to crack down on abusive pratices in the subprime lending market. Oops.

That is right I am consistent so are the facts but what is really nice about Wikipedia is that Wikipedia gives you the links & references to the source where the information came from and was referenced from .
