You have proven that you're nowhere near knowledgeable enough about the topic to discuss it with any reason so ef off.
"Because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made a market for subprime mortgages the lenders did not have to worry about of the soundness of the mortgage contract they wrote. Thus the lenders could write the mortgages as adjustable interest rate mortgages knowing full well that an upturn in the interest rates could easily throw the borrower into insolvency. For example, when the interest rate is 6 percent the mortgage payment for a 30-year $200,000 mortgage is $1199 per month. If the interest rate goes up to 7 percent the mortgage payment would increase by $131 per month, an 11 percent increase. For many of the subprime borrowers living on the edge of insolvency this would be enough to push them over the edge. The guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them. "

It's all there, Dumbrowski, the cause in a nutshell, wise up.

You're appallingly ignorant.

What would have happened if the bad credit people would have paid their mortgages and not defaulted?

That is right, but an important aspect was the guy selling that mortgage did not care if it defaulted because he was going to sell it. Whether it was successful or failed did not matter to him.
The people that bought it from that seller didn't care because they bundled them up into securities. Mortgage based securities were selling like hotcakes & that created the demand for more mortgages. So it goes well beyond banks & well into investment houses. Companies like Standard & Poor then gave them AAA rating for the right price.
The buyers often knew they could not make the balloon payments. Many were hesitant but they were told that when the time came for the balloon payment that they could just remortgage at that time. But home values tumbled & they were all underwater.
So many were duped.
Now these types of mortgages were not CRA loans. So for all those out there screaming "CRA CRA", no. CRA loans were typically standard long term mortgages.
60 million Americans were duped into voting for the empty suit fraud Oblamer.

I do believe far too many liberals are simply brainwashed and can no longer compute or grasp common sense anymore. They're much too willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces. Probably where that saying came from.

I'll also say many dumb dems are simply jealous of those who make it on their own. They loathe their own failures.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "It's becoming more about party loyalty and preserving the party and, thus, power than the best interests of the country..." If you're talking about the GOP then you are absolutely right. The GOP is splintering right down the middle with the young guns(Tea Party Republicans) who would rather see the country fail then compromise with a Democratic Administration on what's best for the Public Interest and the old Republican guard--many from Deep South states who still remember fondly when setting aside ideological differences and making deals across the aisle with democrats where everyone gives up something so all can enjoy better ,shared benefit wasn't equated to treason and scorned. We'll indeed see in this 2014 election if the 'sequester backfired' or not-- do you really think most Americans approve of Congressmen only acting to protect their own privileged lifestyle ,but won't lift a finger to end the sequester for the poor and middle class most negatively effected by it? Many Republicans , like Hal Rogers, are in for another rude awakening as if they forgot why President Obama and VP Biden won reelection in 2012 so handily.

http://www.nationalmemo.com/poll-americans-ba... "According to a new Morning Joe/Marist poll, Americans overwhelmingly favor the Democratic approach to managing the economy and toughening gun laws.

The poll finds that 64 percent believe that creating jobs should be Congress and President Obama’s top priority, while just 33 percent agree with the Republican position that reducing the federal budget deficit is paramount.

Furthermore, when asked how they believe the deficit should be reduced, 42 percent agree with President Obama’s position that we should both cut spending and increase revenues, while 35 percent believe that we should primarily increase revenues, and just 17 percent agree with House Republicans that deficit reduction should come mostly through spending cuts.

Although Republicans have repeatedly asserted that new tax revenue should be off the table as a result of the fiscal cliff deal that raised taxes on family income above $450,000, the American public does not agree."
