80% of the loans that are bad in the system were made by Mortgage Firms, not Banks....... Mortgage Firms aren't regulated by Federal Law or the CRA.

Which means you're can't understand what you are attempting to suggest, or you're lying to paint a narrative that's simple impossible.

CRA only applies to Chartered depository institutions.

There is no question you are simply repeating the Stooge Mantra heard and distributed on the idiot conservative networks.

Anyone that writes or reports such nonsense does so because people like yourself aren't intellectually sophisticated enough to follow up on their wayward claims. And they depend on your inability to decipher for yourself American policies.

How Section 8 Housing Works
by John Barrymore
You've worked hard all your life, but the wage you earn is just not enough to pay the bills. Rising food, energy and health care expenses have taken a large chunk of your take-home pay. And your landlord just raised your rent. If something doesn't change soon, you won’t be able to pay the rent at all. What do you do?
Millions of American families find themselves in similar situations today. Their jobs simply don't pay enough to cover their housing expenses. As a result, many of them have sought help from the federal government's Housing Voucher Program, most commonly referred to as Section 8.

I was there, Carter had a lower unemployment rate than Reagan, Reagan was reelected with a 7% unemployment rate.

Carter had to deal with run away inflation, a hold over from the Nixon Administration policies where Nixon put in price and wage freezes. Reagan stopped unemployment from rising by spending after raising taxes 11 different times.

Clinton was the president with the best expansion of the American Economy in the last 50 years. And he managed that while supplying budget surpluses.

Show you, you live in Ohio. Ohio manufacturing base was gutted with major employers like goodyear and maytag leaving Ohio to open shops in Mexico and, or China. Look at what happened to the steel industry there.

I should not have to prove this to you, walking around Ohio daily should be reminder enough. The entire state once a viable center of manufacturing is now a solid brown grave yard as is most of the manufacturing centers in the Mid West.

Bush Extended Favorite Trade Status to China, despite their human rights violations and extended the taxing policy that deferred taxes on overseas generated income of multi-national corporations. Now corporations build income in China and sent the money to the Cayman Islands to avoid American taxes, while taking advantage of slave labor.

Government can't force industry to stay here or go abroad. That's up to the industry and not our government. The last government policy that had anything to do with outsourcing was NAFTA which was signed by President Clinton.
Bush made no policies that invited industry to move anywhere. In fact, Bush lowered taxes on US businesses hoping to keep them here.

Played like a Banjo?

Reagan when the traded Missiles and Arms for the release of the Hostages in Iran was played like the Banjo, it was those missiles and arms used by Islamic extremist in the Lebanon Marine Barracks Attack, killing 268 of them.

That was the crux of the Iran-Contra case against Reagan.

Jimmy Carter vs. Inflation
Monday, Mar. 24, 1980

COVER STORY
He promises budget cuts and credit curbs, but more is needed

As Jimmy Carter stepped before the television cameras in the East Room of the White House last Friday, his task was not just to proclaim another new anti-inflation program but to calm a national alarm that had begun to border on panic. Inflation and interest rates, both topping 18%, are so far beyond anything that Americans have experienced in peacetime—and so far beyond anything that U.S. financial markets are set up to handle

Carter wasn't "played" by anybody or anything, and managed to get the hostages home without slaughtering hundreds of thousands of innocent lives who had nothing to do with it.
And Carter's proven to be dead right about the need for conservation, and that the far right is STILL laughing about it is on the verge of leaving our planet uninhabitable...all in the name of greed.

Anonymous of Indy--"Point is the Liberals were using the Federal Government along with their CRA to force the banks to give loans to minorities or low income people that the Liberals knew could not afford to pay back"

Lie. Enforcing fair housing is NOT the problem, greed and fraud of the bankers was.

"these mortgages on these houses they mortgaged and the Clinton Adminstration knew it"

Wait...you said "liberals." Clinton was no liberal, neither is Obama. You think anyone who isn't extremist right is "liberal." We've not had a liberal president since FDR...the greatest president of the last century.

"and you know it too and the only reason these low income people got these houses to begin with was because of the banks fearing being sued by the Federal Government and Clinton Adminstration if they did not comply by giving mortgages to low income people even though the banks knew these mortgages would fail"

Lie. They knew they'd WANT them to fail so they could take money AND get the houses back to sell again. They did NOT know the Bush recession was coming and that fewer and fewer people would be able to afford their homes.

"and all the Liberals were doing was playing the Race Card for their justification and the Liberals have turn the housing market upside down."

KKK trash. There is no such thing as a "race card" and demanding fair housing, which is the law of this nation and part of the constitutional PROMISE of equality is NOT the problem. Greed turned the housing sector upside down, not poor people fighting desperately to keep their homes.

"How Democrats Wrecked the Economy and Successfuly Blamed Republicans"

A work of fiction.

"The story is laid out in detail in The Great American Bank Robbery by Paul Sperry and The Housing Boom and Bust by Thomas Sowell."

That you view what that scumbag Sowell thinks as "truth" shows the full problem. You digest extremist hateful trash and think that propaganda is fact and "news". It isn't. Thomas Sowell is a piece of filth and has NO interest in reality, only in promoting an economy that murders millions so the rich can get richer. Sperry is no less a lunatic, just less well-known.

"Here it is in a nutshell.

My point proven,your link to back up your nonsense is to a BLOG with links to such insanity as Front Page Magazine and World Nuts Daily. The right is not only promoting ignorance but CHOOSING ignorance, encouraging people to ONLY consume political propaganda and attacking ANYONE who provides real journalism, real science, real history, or any teaching.

Carter had nothing to do with the hostages being safely released, in fact he got a few soldiers killed when his' decimated by democrats' military tried to rescue them with shoddy equipment, low training and bad planning....The Dems always gut the military when they are in power, then complain when our enemies attack.

Bush pressured Alphonso Jackson to direct HUD to accept mortgages from Private Mortgage Firms.which opened HUD to purchasing loans from anyone holding a note on a home.

Any property owner who held a mortgage on one of his properties could then sale that mortgage to HUD who packages those loans for sale as securities. Never before could a property owner sale his paper to HUD before Bush beat back the requirements.

FHA mortgages, or those mortgages that qualify for federal guarantees are assumable loans........ a seller could have a qualified purchasers just assume payments and move on. That's the benefit of having a FHA qualified mortgage.

Home builders, and Realtors got Bush to change the criteria.

Point taken, but that doesn't absolve the facts that they are, and that it. Reagan traded Missiles and Arms for the release of the Iranian Hostages and, in turn, Islamic extremist murdered 268 American Marines in Lebanon with those missiles attached to a truck.

There was another shipment of weapons delivered to the rebels in El Salvador where 6 Nuns, 3 of them American were raped and murdered, and the Archbishop killed with those arms.

Reagan finally fell on the sword and admitted all of this on National Television.

You can believe what you want about Reagan, that doesn't change he was a psychopathic maniac and godfather of a criminal cartel running out of the oval office who the Democrats failed to discipline by way of impeachment for high crimes against the Nation..
