I was involved in that industry for decades. I watched Fannie and Freddie turn from liquidity tools into social engineering tools.

The liquidity tool idea was a good one; the social engineering was an incredibly bad one. I saw it coming when Congress and POTUS took an interest in what was going on there and insisted on "tweaking" what was once the defining authorities of prudent single and multi-family loan underwriting into something else entirely.

Politicians and cops can screw up a wet dream with little or no effort.

I read the entire Issa report. About 125 pages i believe. Sickening. I never could find Paul Begala in it but I know he was on the board of Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. So he benefited $$..but yet sits there and has a say.. these folks ought to be in Jail.. What about Robert Rubin? nobody ever held him accountable for his crap at CITI.. We get screwed coming and going and left with the bill yet these folks walk!

Odd. No mention of Newt whoring himself out to those organizations and supporting them legislatively. NRO sure has plenty of blind spots.

This stuff just makes me want to cry. There is no justice. There are laws for the average person, and then there are no laws for the elite. The US is officially a banana republic.
