The Big Bail Out!!


Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, America's two underwriters/purchasers/bundlers of home mortgages, is being bailed out by the Federal Government.

I would hope not. Our housing market depends too strongly on these two entities, now government controlled, for stabilizing the market and ensuring first time home buyers and many other buyers can get the mortgages they seek at competitive rates.
