The Federal Housing Department didn't begin to insure sub prime mortgages in the record amounts they were until George Bush directed Alfonso Jackson in 2003 to do so when he was head of HUD. Having HUD lower the standards on mortgages guaranteed was a recommendation of the National Association of Realtors and the Home Builders Association.
Why: Lowering the standard on sub prime loans for federal insurance would be the gateway to Bush's Ownership Society and get renters into purchasing homes to break Clinton's record for new home ownership in America.
Of course the Republicans are against oversight and regulations so the secondary market where mortgage securities are constructed and sold as investment instruments ran crazy with no federal intervention. There was even created an over the counter market where a landlord holding a mortgage could sell that mortgage into the secondary market.

Doesn't negate the fact that under Clinton F and F were directed to start taking subprime mortgages that had been forced on lenders, or the fact that Bush tried to rein in F and F. And it certainly doesn't negate the fact that dems are 100% responsible for forcing lending institutions to start making loans to the uncredit worthy.
Why would lending institutions start loaning money to people with bad credit, something they had never done before?
MY answer is government coercion, what's yours?

Dear friends and others, 45 years ago today, I got into trouble for stealing a 2-1/2 ton truck with some GI buddies to go sing Christmas Carols to the wounded at the 24th Evac, Hospital. The first soldier I saw was a man named Steve. Both arms and legs were gone(I cried like a baby). GOD knows that was the most memorable Christmas I ever had.-----Remember our wounded soldiers, our government won't.------GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!
Merry Christmas to ALL.

ACA is the same plan Nixon was negotiating with Ed Kennedy to implement in the early 70s minus the mandate. The Republican have only had one idea and this is it, the market approach instead of Single Payer.
It's also the bones of the plan that Bob Dole put up against Bill Clinton proposal for universal health care. The same commercial republican used today are the messaging that defeated Clinton's proposal.
In all of those years, the Republicans never had an alternate idea or gave a hoot about insurer dropping consumers, and shutting out consumers with pre existing conditions.
AS usual, as is their decades long MO, dumporats are trying to get something for nothing, and of course it will either fail or put us trillions more in debt and have negative effects on everyone, surely you must know this.

4 decades of welfare programs have only made things worse.

80% of Americans are insured through their employers plans....... that seems to most reasonable minds to be built on heavily employer private plans.......
ACA is the same plan Nixon proposed, and after that Bob Dole in his Presidential Bid. The Republicans haven't had a new idea since the days of Nixon.
When Insurers over the last 20 years where raising rates and dropping subscribers or canceling health care plans as they're doing today, where were the Republicans?

what would have
happened if all the people who took out subprime mortgages would have made all their payments?

would we have had a mortgage crisis?

Banks made those loans because they got the fees for processing them. Then they sold the loans to the secondary market. What did they have to lose? They weren't doing anything illegal in most cases.

It would be like me telling you to go to the race tracks, and any bets you lost, I would reimburse you that money. Of course you're going to bet on long shots with no fear of losing anything. That's just about exactly what the banks did.

Oh really....in what years were you in the commodities mkt.....the 1930's!!!
I got into the commodities market a few years after 911. While I didn't buy many oil contracts, I studied the markets and how they reacted to whatever news came out. When it's your money on the line, you make sure to educate yourself as much as possible. That's how I learned about prices and who really controls them. The commodities market was created so that we are not paying $12.00 per gallon of gasoline when supplies are low, or $5.00 per ear of corn when we have a drought.

I'm not embarrassed at all that our President rose to the top in a relative short period of time in his life. That in itself is remarkable. One thing for sure.....many of you kkkrackas thought for sure McCain/Palin & Romney/Ryan would beat him handedly. Your azzes ought to be embarrassed in seeing a BLACK MAN whip the shyt outta your kkkracka candidates. I'm not hanging my head in shame concerning Obama. I keep my head and eyes lifted up all the time to see how crazy you loons will get. Settle down kkkrackas, we got a few years left to rub your noses.in your own shyt!!!!!!!!!!
Do you know why McCain lost? Because the people were mad at the Republicans at the time. They took out their anger on McCain. It's like I said about the people holding the party of the President responsible.

If there is anything DumBama's legacy will show, it's how racist blacks are. Blacks voted for DumBama in the 90% range against Hillary. Hillary, a woman who had eight years experience in the Senate and eight years of experience in the White House. Then they voted for him in the 90% range against McCain. And again in the 90% range against Romney.

So let me ask: what would you be saying about white people today if whites voted for any white candidate against DumBama in the 90% range? What would that prove about white people today?

He had his slaves do it for him so the COMPLETE FORM wouldn't be filled out. You see, Obama wouldn't fill out the complete form as you or I would. He after all has been hiding much of that information by Presidential Decree for over five years and a million in attorney fees.

True, but that doesn't negate my main point, government[demorat] interference in the markets was the start of the mortgage crisis.
The banks and lending institutions were forcibly handed lemons and they made lemonade and now we're shocked?
Should they have just kept the bad loans and took it in the shorts when the borrowers defaulted?
