washington now fining banks 90 billion dollars. how about their regulators and the fed? how about no money down mortgages? how about the f.b.i. reports of mortgage fraud back in 2006? washington has no shot in hell. fed reserve knew it when they raised rates. they were so far behind. fannie and freddie. who will they blame for that?
