New Agency Proposed to Oversee Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae

By STEPHEN LABATON
Published: September 11, 2003

The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.

Under the plan, disclosed at a Congressional hearing today, a new agency would be created within the Treasury Department to assume supervision of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored companies that are the two largest players in the mortgage lending industry.

The new agency would have the authority, which now rests with Congress, to set one of the two capital-reserve requirements for the companies. It would exercise authority over any new lines of business. And it would determine whether the two are adequately managing the risks of their ballooning portfolios.

The plan is an acknowledgment by the administration that oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which together have issued more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding debt, is broken. A report by outside investigators in July concluded that Freddie Mac manipulated its accounting to mislead investors, and critics have said Fannie Mae does not adequately hedge against rising interest rates.

Lowest labor participation since 1978. Tragic...
And it is NOT because "baby boomers are retiring. Young people are giving up hope.

"If the decline stemmed largely from an aging work force, it would be much less worrisome. But the initial wave of baby boomer retirements plays only a small role in the drop; the labor force participation rate has fallen almost as sharply for people aged 25 to 54 as it has for the overall adult population," the newspaper stated.

Jan 10, 2014 -- The job participation rate, fell to the lowest level since 1978, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"Millennials have a long road ahead: The employment rate of 75.4 percent in December was closer to the low point during the recession, 73-74 percent, than to the pre-bubble normal, 78-80 percent," noted Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia.

Participation rate in labor force matches 35-year low...
The economy gained a meager 74,000 jobs last month, the weakest result since early 2011, according to government data released Friday morning. Also not good: The participation rate in the labor force declined one-fifth of a percentage point to 62.8% in December, matching October’s level, which was the lowest since 1978.

Want more unemployment? Subsidize it... FACT!

First, government assistance increases the measure of unemployment by prompting people who are not working to claim that they are looking for work even when they are not.

The second way government assistance programs contribute to long-term unemployment is by providing an incentive, and the means, not to work. Each unemployed person has a “reservation wage”—the minimum wage he or she insists on getting before accepting a job. Unemployment insurance and other social assistance programs increase that reservation wage, causing an unemployed person to remain unemployed longer.

Management Recruiters of Sacramento, Calif., says it recently had a tough time filling six engineering positions at an Oregon manufacturer paying $60,000 a year—and suspects long-term jobless benefits were part of the hitch.

"We called several engineers that were unemployed," says Karl Dinse, a managing partner at the recruiting firm. "They said, nah, you know, if it were paying $80,000 I'd think about it." Some candidates suggested he call them back when their benefits were scheduled to run out, he says.

That story is just a small part of the whole problem caused by the Obama Administration... FACT!

Try educating yourself in the future so you don't continue to look so stupid, you're welcome.

Perhaps you should seek more education of what the real facts are instead of liberal bullshit, before posting again...

Actually I have talked about them.

And Tea Party polls have nothing to do with Obama's failures. Try the deflection somewhere else.

January 8, 2014 - Qunnipiac Poll

29. If a candidate for Congress - is associated with the Tea Party, would you be more likely to vote for that candidate, less likely, or wouldn't it make a difference?

http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-cent...

More likely 21%
Less Likely 41%
No Difference 36%
DK/NA 3%

All the polls look like this. It means 39% have no opinion of the Tea Party or it doesn't matter if they're a Tea Party candidate. Doesn't mean they won't vote for them. Just 21% of them KNOW they would vote for them.

Next?

Republican...not much all from 2012...and we all know how that turned out..

Their trying to re-brand...but all I found was they are giving up on Jobs....their going to run as the anti-abortion party in 2014....

I can't wait for them to tell the American voter that their Anti-abortion legislation IS their Jobs Bill...

Then they can stand up there after they want to get control of our lady parts....they can tell us to be submissive to our husbands...then after we birth those babies, women can have jobs as babysitters.....no need for that fancy schoolin..

Welcome back to the past Century...the only time the Tea Party and Republicans were happy....and we have to stay there....whether we like it or not...

"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."

Abraham Lincoln
