Without Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?? Go Find The Money To Lend. HA!

      How many critics of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have a true understanding of the Secondary Market, and how Fannie/Freddie make money available for Lenders to lend to Home Buyers? 

      Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were doing just fine until Congress, the Administration, and the Big Banks/Wall Streeters starting using Fannie and Freddie to make personal fortunes and further their political agendas!

THE SECONDARY MARKET PROVIDED BY FANNIE/FREDDIE.  Announcing

Be careful what you ask for!!!

The secondary market provided by Fannie/Freddie have been crucial to the real estate industry and the economy of the United States.

The failures of Fannie/Freddie was not due to a systemic failure of their MISSION, to provide liquidity for mortgage originators. 

This post inspired by Conrad Allen in 58.7 BILLION DOLLAR PROFIT BY FANNIE MAE

THE FAILURES OF FANNIE/FREDDIE (IMO) WAS CAUSED DIRECTLY BY:

POLITICAL CRONYISM (Franklin Raines),

Perfidy of the Wall Street Gangs(Securitization of Mortgage Backed Securities),

Perfidy of the Credit Rating Agencies (Credit rating agencies failures in the sub-prime market), and

The total failure of Congress to DO THEIR JOB.

How many who criticize Fannie/Freddie, have an understanding of the secondary market and how Fannie/Freddie make money available for lenders to lend to consumers. 

Fannie/Freddie were just fine doing their job before Congress/the Wall Street gangs, etc. decided to make personal fortunes and further their political agenda by using Fannie/Freddie.

It would be smart before any more tinkering or elimination of Fannie/Freddie to consider the consequences.  

Government is very good at acting and then observing the consequences.  Lenn

Government is very bad at considering consequences before acting.
