Typical, so you'll just ignore the "Unregulated" Index on Wall Street trading worthless securities, the Credit Default Swaps Index?
No, there was no Federal oversight and consumer protection as thieves in expensive suits were selling worthless securities full of junk mortgages that crashed America's and the World's Economy.
Catch up, the facts have been out only 3 years.......

Deregulation of the banks which make up wall street was a gift from Carter. The Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980 (H.R. 4986, Pub.L. 96–221)(often abbreviated DIDMCA or MCA) is a United States federal financial statute passed in 1980 and signed by President Jimmy Carter on March 31st.[1] It gave the Federal Reserve greater control over non-member banks. The Federal Reserve is not federal, it's privately owned since Woodrow Wilson, another liberal who privatized the banks in 1913.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages are as old as I am, you believing they were some regulated congressional devices is proof you aren't qualified to under sophisticated financing options.

They've always been a basic component of the financing market.

Mortgage lending loosens only by directive of George Bush in 2003 to achieve his agenda item of an ownership society. You'd better review Congressional archives of bills proposed and passed that year.

You don't seem as informed as you'd like to think you are repeating the idiotic reports from Conservative stooge television programing.

At the very least consult a qualified Mortgage originator.

The illegals will get their emergency care at the ER, like usual. Just like the uninsured teahadists that will be stuck going there because they won't sign-up for ACA out of spite. Don't forget to thank them for their conservative deceptionalism.
Gee, and everyone thought that ALL would pay in and ALL would be covered, fancy that.

If you have a job and health care insurance now, then you don't have any expense as a result of the ACA.
If you can not determine that then the chances are you don't or isn't :
1. have a job, or health care insurance
2. not knowledgeable enough to have a worthwhile job that pays more than the qualifications to sign up for medicaid.
Nobody in the middle class with a job and insurance pays anything beyond the tax on using a tanning salon. Or, if you don't have insurance and option to pay the $95 penalty which is deducted from your tax returns.

And not one single guarantee that when the ACA implodes due to underfunding that your premiums won't skyrocket. But, hey, you NEED health coverage. See, that's the difference between you and me. I already have an account set up for my own healthcare visits. And by golly, it has NO deductible or co-pay.

ARMs have been around for a while, but the consequences were never spelled out to those securing them. That is what is referred to as "predatory lending".

resident Obama has made many promises about his signature health care plan, but one of the simplest was an assurance that it would lower national health care spending and save every family thousands of dollars.

For example, in May 2009 he hailed "comprehensive health care reform -- so that we can do what I pledged to do as a candidate and save a typical family an average of $2,500 on their health care costs in the coming years."

But now government actuaries have reached a different conclusion, finding that ObamaCare will actually increase health care spending by $621 billion over the next 10 years.

Doug Holtz-Eakin, the former head of the Congressional Budget Office, says, "now we're seeing the official scorekeepers of health spending say 'hey it's going up, not down.' That's going to be a mark against the program no matter what."

(CBS News) Healthcare.gov launched more than a week ago, and while millions of Americans have signed into the site, not many have been able to actually sign up for insurance because of glitches with the website.

Administration officials implementing the new health care law will be on the hot seat Wednesday as the House Oversight Committee hopes to find out what the problems were.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa told CBS News' Jan Crawford that he plans to ask how the mess surrounding the website could even happen.

It's obvious you don't understand lending and mortgage instruments and have no business in a discussion on the matter.

You're the typical consumer a predatory lender is searching for all day, every day.

Wrong, I was going to purchase a Victorian home in a town near me for a law office for my daughter. The prices for these buildings from this time period were going for $250,000.00. I have been around long enough to know that they were over-priced. The lenders wanted 25% down and wanted to force me into an ARM. I refused. my credit was in the 8's so there was no reason for it, except that even the banks knew that the properties were over-priced. The market bubble was viewed as just that, the only fools were the consumers. Needless to say, we put off the purchase, and to our delight, the real estate bubble burst. So, sorry to disappoint you erica, you were way off base on your little assumption.
