And So It Goes

When the government first proposed its tax rebate scheme last January, many were quick to point out the money was not ultimately, despite the signature on the check, a payment from the US government, but a loan from abroad, largely from Japan and China. Now that we can confidently anticipate the consensus will quickly form around the presumptive necessity of a bailout of that economically distressed couple Freddie and Fannie, it’s worth noting who is ultimately being bailed out here:

FreedomWorks urges opposition to $300 billion mortgage bailout by Feds

FreedomWorks, a policy group based in Washington, D.C., is urging taxpayers to voice opposition to HR3221, popularly known as the Dodd-Frank-Countrywide Mortgage Bailout. The organization wants people in Florida’s 2nd District to contact Kristen Hawn [866-887-5841], communications director for the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of Democrats who claim a “deep commitment to the financial stability and national security of the United States.” FreedomWorks hopes the Blue Dogs “buck party leadership and do the right thing for fiscal responsibility by opposing the mortgage bailout when it reaches the House of Representatives.” FW also suggests calling Rep. Allen Boyd (D-2nd Dist.) at 1-866-928-3035 and ask him to show leadership by opposing the bailout.

Dodd Mortgage Bill Raids Billions More from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Capital Base

As the stocks of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae fall dramatically downward this week, the U.S. Senate is resuming votes on a bill that contains a direct raid on the GSEs’ shrinking capital base. The Dodd-Frank mortgage bailout creates a new housing trust fund that will collect an estimated $530 million a year through a new levy on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The levy must be paid whether Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac make a profit or not.

Obama Joins Growing List of Mortgage "Sweetheart Senators"

The scandal surrounding the Dodd-Countrywide mortgage bailout bill continues to grow, as news surfaced that Barack Obama received a suspicious deal on a home mortgage in 2005 from Northern Trust in Illinois. The massive $1.32 million loan, nicknamed a "super super jumbo" loan by mortgage lenders, allows Senator Obama to pay preferential, below market rates on his six-bedroom, four-car garage, home that includes a wine cellar and a solarium. This is the same controversial home Senator Obama bought with the help of a sweetheart land deal with convicted felon and political insider Tony Rezko.

The BoA/Countrywide Bill

The Boston Globe (news section -- not editorial) on the housing bailout: The mortgage legislation would help lenders like Countrywide, which was acquired by Bank of America last week, by allowing them to transfer their distressed loans to the federal government, avoiding potentially huge losses if borrowers continue to default on their mortgages.
