    Anyone in the US who really wants a job has only to move to ND.

    Kush, where else could it be deployed if not either consumption or savings? Yes, it is all about jobs, but you're fighting any solutions outside of any that might be created by the government. Give the private sector a chance by removing governmental barriers. The public sector does nothing but suck resources from the private sector...

    And he's calling for lower lending standards and a 3.5% capital requirement for loans purchased by Ginne-Mae. It's also interesting to note that Ginnie -Mae is the only GSE who actually is backed 100 % by the US government.

    The assumption that through 2002-2009 that Fannie and Freddie were was incorrect, but I remember certain Politicians saying the US Govt would bail them out.
    Good evening, Fenton.

    From a headline in the Washington Post dated April 4, 2013. "Obama Pumps a new housing bubble."

    "Obama administration pushes banks to make home loans to people with weaker credit...an effort officials say will power an economic recovery, but that skeptics say could open the door to risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place...."

    It appears that some people never learn! The theme seems to be "No homeowner left behind, even when they cannot afford it." :
