"IF" the final tally is the 800 billion as advertised,every household in the US just instantly picked up an additional $14,000.00 in tax obligation. The actual amount we could be held up for may be as much as 2.5 Trillion. Thats a million,million. X2...and a half.:thumb::xeye::xeye::xeye:

The government had to make a choice. Either they bailed out these two companies and stuck it to the tax payers or they choose to flush the economy right now. Obviously they've chosen to buy some time. Had they let it go, China and Russia would have taken economic recourse. Other nations could have added their losses in Fannie and Freddie to the general debt owed to them by the US government. In addition, they could freeze lending to the US, immediately placing the US into an economic tailspin.

Yes,it is as bad as you think it is if not worst.The goverment now has contol over the largest lenders in the county.And the best part is we the tax payers get to pay all those bad loans off with our tax dollars.And if we run out of money it is ok.Our very good friends from China will just loan the poor old U.S.A. a couple of billion to hold us over.Of course there will be little intrest to be payed on that money.LOL

whats coming next is a S load of new debt. they are not willing to let go of it and the control it will give govt, govt agencies never die and now that they have taken control of it it will not be given up --- no matter what it costs us.private sector
the private sector issuing home loans "is basically wishful thinking." --now who is the socialist here?

Sen. Richard C. Shelby of Alabama, the senior Banking Committee Republican, said they should be downsized and spun off into entirely private companies.

"I'm skeptical that we'll be able to go totally privatized. I think we will have to maintain some kind of public role," Barney Frank said.

Dodd didn't address the idea of a mortgage finance utility, but he said the notion that the private sector could play that role "is basically wishful thinking." He indicated he would fight to preserve some sort of institution that promotes homeownership and affordable mortgage credit, "whether it's them or some other replacement entity."
