FHFA Head in the sand continued…

re. Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae

“The government took over the pair in September 2008 after they suffered heavy loan losses following the housing crash. So far, it’s cost $145 billion so far and is likely to be the most expensive of all the financial bailouts.

Late last year, the Obama administration pledged to cover unlimited losses through 2012 for the companies, lifting an earlier cap of $400 billion. And with the housing market still on shaky ground, Obama administration officials say it is still too early to draft any proposals to reform them, or the broader housing finance system.”
