  • Are you saying Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac wrote the financial reform bill so small banks would fail?

  • I was surprised Fannie and Freddie were not included they were a big reason the housing market was in trouble. I guess Barney Frank is sticking to his story that both are fundamentally sound still. If this was about financial reform both would have been included in the bill.

  • Love the fact that car dealers, which are notorious for predatory lending, are also exempt. Wall Street is laughing, this is a joke. The people and businesses without power will get hurt, the lobbyists have bought off the Congress.

    Some protection, huh?

  • They didn't fix Fannie and Freddie have been esponged of any wrong doing. They are pet entities of the dems. To fix them would be to admit they caused a problem. Barney Frands and Pelosi will not stand for that.

  • Pretty pitiful isn't it?

    Jesse, I'm not sure what your answer means. Fand F have not been expunged of anything. They caused this and the Dems will make sure we keep paying for it.
