The original lender sells that loan to another company (for a fee), and all risk is transferred to that other company.
The original lender profited and carries no risk, so for its purposes the borrower could have been a shetland pony.
That's how it worked.

Back to the original point of this thread... The U.S. has a serious obeisity problem. I didn't see anything in the First Lady's comments that MANDATED government requiring parents to adhere to a specific regimin of diet and exercise for their kids. Public information to try to educate parents and get them to do the right thing is well within the tradition of what many first ladies have done... remember Nancy Reagan's "just say no" campaign regarding drugs? Was that unnecessary government intrusion? Of course not. The U.S. has a terrible obeisity problem. I don't expect government to go into every home to monitor the dietary customs of each family and check a daily exercise log... (though some parents perhaps would benefit from it), but public advocacy of this nature is well within the moral suasion that a first lady can bring to bear on an important public problem, in this case a health one...

Defense, war and national security... they are permitted under the Constitution.
As for brown people... I don't care what color terrorists come in. They need be stopped, offed if need be.
When it comes to these First Ladies interests... they need not be funded by government and government departments that should be shut or drastically cut. Just Say No could have been funded by the private sector. Of all the First Ladies interests, this message was probably the most memorable and effective.
