Even worse, the U.S. Senate is poised give us FannieFreddie 2.0 in the new housing reform bill that Senators Tim Johnson (D., S.D.) and Mike Crapo (R., Idaho) have released.

If the Johnson-Crapo housing bill is adopted, the federal government will have effectively taken over the U.S. mortgage market.

fascism. as a veneer for socialism. transitory step inot fullblown socialism.
I believe Johnson-Crapo is what happens to homosexual men after intercourse.
Translation: CASH SALES FOR HOMES ONLY!
Ultimate goal is complete takeover of everything.

State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress. (emphases added) Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
Crapo - an appropriate name for this bill ...
