Do you realize that $3.70 a gallon is less than the price per gallon in August, 2008? Funny how you people never blame Bush for his failure.
The $5.3-billion Keystone XL Pipeline Project is the largest infrastructure project currently proposed in the United States. Construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline will require 9,000 skilled American workers. The project will provide jobs for welders, mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, laborers, safety coordinators, heavy equipment operators and other workers who rely on large construction projects for their livelihoods.

In addition to construction jobs, an estimated 7,000 U.S. jobs are being supported in manufacturing the steel pipe and the thousands of fittings, valves, pumps and control devices required for a major oil pipeline.

TransCanada has contracts with more than 50 suppliers across the U.S., including companies in Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, California and Pennsylvania.

TransCanada employed 4,844 Americans in Oklahoma and Texas on construction of the $2.3-billion Gulf Coast Pipeline Project, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year.

Construction and development of the Keystone XL and Gulf Coast Pipeline Projects is anticipated to generate $20 billion in economic impact in the United States, including $99 million in local government revenues and $486 million in state government revenues during construction.

The pipelines will also generate an estimated $5 billion in additional property taxes during their operational life.

Seriously. You can't believe TransCanada. They will say anything to get their pipeline approved. No one has been able to verify their employment numbers. It's all smoke & mirrors.
That being said, remember Boehner's claim that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio):“At a time when many are without work, it is time that we come together in a bipartisan way to pass this legislation which will create tens of thousands of new jobs.” Repeat...."tens of thousands of NEW jobs." It was a Republican lie then and it is a Republican lie now.

When it come to Liberals, there is never enough milk in teat to feed them all...

"Fifteen percent of Americans still live in poverty, according to the official census poverty report for 2012, unchanged since the mid-1960s. Liberals argue that we aren’t spending enough money on poverty-fighting programs, but that’s not the problem. In reality, we’re losing the war on poverty because we have forgotten the original goal, as LBJ stated it half a century ago:“to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities.”

'The federal government currently runs more than 80 means-tested welfare programs that provide cash, food, housing, medical care and targeted social services to poor and low-income Americans. Government spent $916 billion on these programs in 2012 alone, and roughly 100 million Americans received aid from at least one of them, at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient.(That figure doesn’t include Social Security or Medicare benefits.) Federal and state welfare spending, adjusted for inflation, is 16 times greater than it was in 1964. If converted to cash, current means-tested spending is five times the amount needed to eliminate all official poverty in the U.S.'

Didn't the Community Reinvestment Act encourage this lending? Some lenders were writing mortgages to people with no proof of income and no down payment to people who couldn't afford it.
Fannie and Freddie bought them. They became mortgage backed securities. That's what Freddie and Fannie does. Create a secondary mortgage market creating more lending money.
You're correct in that Freddie / Fannie bought them. But the institutions who had them should not have sold them. They did not meet the government's requirements to become secured by them.

The fact that a LOAN ORIGINATOR didn't do income verification isn't an issue for the government. It was the private enterprise that did it...

Anyway, on to FRB New York....

"Executive Summary
Section numbers containing more detail
are provided in [square] brackets.

Until very recently, the origination of mortgages and issuance of mortgage-backed
securities (MBS) was dominated by loans to prime borrowers conforming to underwriting
standards set by the Government Sponsored Agencies (GSEs)[2]
&#8722;
By 2006, non-agency origination of $1.480 trillion was more than 45% larger than
agency origination, and non-agency issuance of $1.033 trillion was 14% larger than
agency issuance of $905 billion..."

"2.
Overview of subprime mortgage credit securitization

Until very recently, the origination of mortgages and issuance of mortgage-backed securities
(MBS) was dominated by loans to prime borrowers conforming to underwriting standards set by the Government Sponsored Agencies (GSEs).outside of conforming loans are non-agency
asset classes that include Jumbo, Alt-A, and Subprime. Loosely speaking, the Jumbo asset
class includes loans to prime borrowers with an original principal balance larger than the
conforming limits imposed on the agencies by Congress;
2
the Alt-A asset class involves loans to borrowers with good credit but include more aggressive underwriting than the conforming or Jumbo classes (i.e. no documentation of income , high leverage); and the Subprime asset class involves loans to borrowers with poor credit history. "

Tell me something....

... if the CRA 'encouraged' this type of lending as you propose, where is CRA today?
