    Tax cuts were extended out to everyonex not just " the rich" amd are you seriously STILL blaming Bush 6 years into a Progressives Presidents term ?


    HOUSEHOLD DEBT DOUBLED UNDER BUSH THOUGH...

    The American mortgage market was about $1 trillion a year. The real surge in the mortgage market began in 2001 (the year of the stock market crash). From 2000 -2004, residential originations the U.S. climbed from about $1trillion to almost $4 trillion.

    About 70% of this rise was accounted for by people refinancing their conventional mortgages at lower interest rates

    David Stockman, Ex-Reagan Budget Director: George W. Bush's Policies Bankrupt The Country

    “(Reagan’s deficit policies) allowed George W. Bush to dive into the deep end, bankrupting the nation through two misbegotten and unfinanced wars, a giant expansion of Medicare and a tax-cutting spree for the wealthy that turned K Street lobbyists into the de facto office of national tax policy,” Stockman wrote.

    Of course in CONservative world, giving US 4 straight surpluses and the longest economic expansion on record with 22+ million jobs is created is dismissed because someone got a BJ

    BUT BUSH GOES TO 2 UNFUNDED WARS, GIVES US 2 UNFUNDED TAX CUTS THAT DESTROY US REVENUES (taking it to Korean war levels) GIVES US UNFUNDED MEDICARE EXPANSION, IGNORES WARNINGS ON 9/11 BUT THAT GUY DID A GOOD JOB? lol

    Think "Community Reinvestment Act"

    Sub prime loans

    ACORN and community activist forcing lenders to approve sub prime loans.

    Don't forget Rep. Barney Frank (D), Freddie and Fannie are in great shape.

    Got it, ALL the right wing talking points devoid of reasoning, logic or honesty

    Right-wingers Want To Erase How George Bush's "Homeowner Society" Helped Cause The Economic Collapse

    2004 Republican Convention:

    Another priority for a new term is to build an ownership society, because ownership brings security and dignity and independence.
    ...

    Thanks to our policies, home ownership in America is at an all- time high.

    (APPLAUSE)

    Tonight we set a new goal: 7 million more affordable homes in the next 10 years, so more American families will be able to open the door and say, "Welcome to my home."



    Most subprime lenders weren't subject to federal lending law

    Community Reinvestment Act, blamed for home market crash, didn't apply to the banks that did the most lending.

    DUBYA FOUGHT ALL 50 STATE AG'S IN 2003, INVOKING A CIVIL WAR ERA RULE SAYING FEDS RULE ON "PREDATORY" LENDERS!

    Eliot Spitzer - Predatory Lenders' Partner in Crime


    Dubya was warned by the FBI of an "epidemic" of mortgage fraud in 2004. He gave them less resources.

    Later in 2004 Dubya allowed the leverage rules to go from 12-1 to 33-1 which flooded the market with cheap money!

    Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble


    He insisted that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac meet ambitious new goals for low-income lending.


    June 17, 2004

    (CNN/Money) - Home builders, realtors and others are preparing to fight a Bush administration plan that would require Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase financing of homes for low-income people, a home builder group said Thursday.

    The worldwide rise in house prices is the biggest bubble in history. Prepare for the economic pain when it pops

    According to estimates by The Economist, the total value of residential property in developed economies rose by more than $30 trillion over the past five years, to over $70 trillion, an increase equivalent to 100% of those countries' combined GDPs.

    YEAH, ACORN, CRA AND BARNEY *SHAKING HEAD*

    IT WAS A BUSH REGULATOR ISSUE IN THE US AS HE WAS THE HEAD CHEERLEADER FOR THE BANKSTERS




    Regulators and policymakers enabled this process at virtually every turn. Part of the reason they failed to understand the housing bubble was willful ignorance: they bought into the argument that the market would equilibrate itself. In particular, financial actors and regulatory officials both believed that secondary and tertiary markets could effectively control risk through pricing.
