Can anyone explain why the huge Financial Reform bill has left out reform for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and auto dealers? What is the logic?

  • What makes me sad is all the people running around saying Obama is doing a good job who probably don't even know what Fannie and Freddie are (or they think it's a chocolate company and a 70's band).

  • Logic? What is that? Aren't we talking about our elected leadership?

    Logic left the building a long, long time ago.

  • Because GM is now government motors. and

    Fannie & Freddie are democrats pet project.

    What gets me is the Financial reform bill was written by Barney Frank & Chris Dodd, the two guys that got us into this big mess in the first place.

  • It's all a power and money thing. As for being logical, hell no, never

  • Mr. Obama is America's 1st socialist Prez..
    Maybe the first one in our times, but not the first in America.

    Mancos, if they actually did reform Fannie and Freddie, too many pols would lose too much money. Therefore, they will never do anything about those two entities until we have a majority of pols with nothing invested in these two money pits.

  • We're not talking about Politics here, PEOPLE!

    We're talking about THIS SUCKING ADMINISTRATION!.

    Politics goes on in Washington everyday for a couple hundred years now.

    Mr. Obama is America's 1st socialist Prez..

    Be credible and STOP blaming it on "oh, you know, just politics as usual, la la la..............
    No, he's a socialist.
    We've been had.
