Banks could lower the interest rate or other costs to make the payments more affordable but the bank still had to verify that the borrows could meet those payments.
Wy do you people have to keep lying about this. No one demanded they make loans to people who could not meet the payments required.
Sub prime mortgages were not lax standards that deserved the full faith and credit of the US government?

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here, read this part again!

President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices.
As few as 19 of those 186 clients still own homes with clean credit ratings, following a decade in which Obama and other progressives pushed banks to provide mortgages to poor African Americans.

Nonsense. They were GSE's. Directed by BIll Clinton to purchase sub prime loans.

If Fannie/Freddie did not make the market for sub primes there would have never been a financial meltdown.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are calling on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to cease his "partisan investigation" into the deadly September 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya and instead focus on reforming the security of diplomatic officers serving overseas.

"To date, the Committee’s investigation has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate after further investigation," they wrote in a letter addressed to Issa on Thursday.

"In fact, the Washington Post Fact Checker has awarded you 12 Pinocchios over the past 12 months for inaccurate claims you have made during this investigation. We believe it is time to end these seemingly endless and unsubstantiated political attacks and direct the Committee’s efforts towards concrete and lasting reforms."

The letter comes after a contentious hearing on the IRS "targeting" scandal earlier this month where Issa abruptly cut off Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-MD)'s microphone. Democrats expressed outrage and demanded Issa step down, but House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was unpersuaded.

Democrats are seeking to highlight Issa's consistently debunked effort to tie the attacks to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is considered a 2016 presidential front-runner should she decide enter the race. Issa's flimsy claims even drew criticism from Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.

"Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television—and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process—is undermining the credibility of our Committee and the seriousness of our work," the Democrats added.

Issa's numerous investigations of the attack have cost the Pentagon millions of dollars and thousands of hours of personnel time, the Defense Department revealed Tuesday.

Nancy Pelosi, a catholic, wins the Margaret Sanger Award! Margaret Sanger who wrote this:“I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world – that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin – that people can – can commit.”

Nancy must be so proud!!!!!

And in 1939, Sanger went to work “cultivating the garden.” She initiated the Negro Project to weed out the unfit from the black population. In bringing birth control to the then largely poor (i.e. unfit) population of the South, with a few influential black ministers promoting the project as the solution to poverty, Sanger hoped to significantly reduce the black population. Martin Luther King, Sr., as the eldest son of nine children born into poverty in a family of sharecroppers, would have made the perfect target for “elimination.” But his birth had already taken place.

Banks that were insured by the FDIC had to keep the lending standards. Lenders like Countrywide, not so much.

Wasn't the CRA used by Bush to eliminate down payments?

You are the astonishingly ignorant one. THERE ARE NO JOBS BILLS WAITING FOR APPROVAL BY THE SENATE. It's all Republican smoke and mirrors.

"The new tactic by House Republicans is to call every single bill that they pass a ‘jobs bill.’ An anti-abortion bill? Yep, jobs bill. Approval of the Keystone XL pipeline that will put billions of dollars in the pockets of the Koch brothers? Yep, jobs bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has actually put together a list of bills that have passed the House that he feels are ‘jobs bills.’ There is just one little problem. They aren’t going to create any new jobs!

In Boehner’s mind, repealing Obamacare, slashing regulations, gutting social programs and eliminating federal agencies is somehow going to create more jobs. One bill that Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) mentioned in January was the SKILLS Act, something that Boehner and Republicans have hyped up as important to job creation. However, the likelihood is that it would actually create a net negative in jobs. While the GOP can tout it as important to helping people train for new jobs, what it really does is eliminates many existing federal programs, putting government employees out of work."

Nancy must be so proud!!!!

Sanger’s impact during her lifetime was highly negative, and included the cruelty of forced sterilization, which became a common practice. In America, over 60,000 people were sterilized against their will. And most occurred during the 1930s and 1940s when Sanger and the birth control and population control movements were pushing states hard to enact and enforce compulsory sterilization laws. Among the victims were the blind, the deaf, epileptics, the mentally retarded, the mentally ill, and people with low IQs diagnosed as “feeble-minded.”

Whole lot of abuse going on. This thread has become a sling fest.
Those who enjoy abuse, abuse others "unprovoked" and deserve to be abused.
Maybe it's the only interactive experience in their miserable lives of existence that makes them "feel" alive, important, powerful, relevant.
Pertains to Both Sides ... Baggers the Coms and the Cons.

Some of them want to use you
