    Either you can quote promises he made or you can't. So far, you haven't.

    I asked you a "yes" or "no" question, are you going to answer it or are you going to run away from it ... ?


    Did Frank prevent H.R.1461 from passing in the House in 2005? Yes or no?
    I've already been down that road with him. If memory serves he came up with one prediction by Biden -- not Obama, another by Obama that was mostly true, and another link that had no prediction from anyone.

    Frank voted no on the Legislation. Suggest you find out why, now we cannot have regulations and control over Fannie and Freddie, can we?

    Why are you so terrified to answer the question I asked? I didn't ask you how Frank voted, I asked you ...

    He tried to prevent it which was a vote NO, why did he vote no and what did he do when the Democrats took control of the Congress in January 2007 and why didn't they try and prevent the housing crisis that occurred in 2008?

    For the 4th time, answer the question I am asking you ... not the question you are making up ...

    NO, now what is your point? And what did Frank and the Democrats do about the housing bubble when they took control in January 2007?

    I could be wrong but it does look like failures always flock together, Obama, Geithner, Frank, Dodd, and Obama supporters.

    The point is, Barney Frank did not prevent the much needed oversight as you are falsely trying to portray.

    So who did?

    They did nothing, but the housing market was already destroyed by then as it peaked in 2006.

    Actually housing starts had started decreasing mid 2006, and I'd have been happy for the run on housing starts to continue ... for the sake of jobs. Proper blame for the bubble falls to Clinton ... the excesses of risk to banking and politicians. 20x to 30x isn't a reasonable risk period ... yet we were 20x in 2000. One bank actually made it to 35x.
