Why isn't more focus being put on Fannie Mae?

Why isn't more focus being put on Fannie Mae?


Shouldn't we shut them down before they completely Bankrupt America?

Isn't Barney Franks Fannie Mae what caused the Housing Meltdown and the Economic Crisis we are dealing with?


Fannie Mae posts $18.9 billion Q3 loss, taps Treasury - Nov. 5, 2009


NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Fannie Mae, the largest provider of funding for U.S. home loans, said on Thursday bad mortgages and a federal foreclosure prevention program left it with a $18.9 billion loss, forcing it to tap the Treasury again to plug a hole in its net worth.

The fannie mae be to big ...no one wants to notice the multi-billion dollar fat queen in the room.........especially when freddie-mac and chees is it's boyfriend..if I may speak Franks..ly

I'm very skeptical of optimists and pessimists

Another great post Dawg.

I would think where the government has control of Fannie Mae now; it has turned into another government program. This is why not much focus is not put on it. Eventually the taxpayers will be drained from this type of behavior by our government. We all know the government can not even run the government.

They should just shut it down, let it file for bankruptcy and forget about it. Of course the taxpayers will be the ones to lose. We have got to get all these people in D.C. out of office. They will be the ones to bankrupt America.

For God and family For my country For Americans

On September 7, 2008, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, under the direction of United States Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, stated that the two GSE's (Government sponsored Enterprises) into "conservatorship "

This decision was highly supported by Federal Reserve Bank Chairmen Ben Benanke. Both Paulson and Benanke both supported this action and it was the only way they could commit taxpayer money .

Now comes the hard part to admit do they shut it down, do they keep it going using taxpayer money.

Well.....Rumor has it they have to shut it down bye bye! BUT how is this Administration going to tell the American people they failed in this BAIL-OUT!  When will they tell us is the trillion dollar question??

"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves." Ronald Reagan

And now Obama  is trying to get the banks to start the same thing over again by loaning to people who can not pay it back.  This Administration will never learn.  They are having a ball with our money while we the people are drowning.

You are only as old as you act.

Fanny  Mae & Freddy Mac were both the reason for the financial collapse.  But, the media won't focus on that because the media supported the idgets who blew up the balloon that collapsed.  Oh what a beautiful morning......

Because The Democrats Do Not Want The American People To Know The Truth.

Plain and Simple ... Americans know that Barney Frank's Failures as the Head of the Housing Over Sight Committee was the foundation of the Housing Market Collapse.

Democrats played on the "wants" of those that could not afford Homes, by claiming "Everyone Deserves To Own Their Own Home" ... Even if they couldn't afford one apparently.

ACORN helped "strong arm" Banks & Lenders into approving Under Qualified Loans by playing the "Race Card" and protesting outside Bank President's Homes.  When these "Under Qualified Applicants" could not afford to make their payments, they were foreclosed one and BANKS LOST MILLIONS ... Lenders went Bankrupt.

Obama is doing the same thing with the Economy ... He claims we're going to get the Country back on track by building from the ground up  ....  So, Obama is relying on the very same people that couldn't make their mortgage payments because they bought a home they couldn't afford, to build the country back up ?????   ARE YOUR SERIOUS ????

"Some people wonder all their lives if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem.” Semper Fi Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

This would not have happened if Barney Frank was doing his job properly. He should be prosecuted for neglecting his duties. We are heading in the same direction with the houses losing there value everyday. Now will Obama blame the Republicans for this one.
