The Bank of America Bill

It's not just Countrywide that would benefit from the Dodd bailout.  Its suitor, Bank of America, would also love to see the bill pass.  As Tim Carney reports in the Examiner, the bill is referred to on Capitol Hill as "the Bank of America bill on steroids."  Carney's got the whole story behind BoA's love for the bill in his column today.

How Big is the Big Bad Bailout?

How much will Countrywide benefit from Sen. Dodd's FHA bailout?  The Journal does the math: If borrowers and lenders take full advantage of this new federal program, and Countrywide loans go south at roughly the same rate as those from other lenders, this suggests a potential taxpayer bailout of more than $25 billion for Countrywide-originated loans.

BY Matt Kibbe

Thanks to Matt for stopping by to post this. Matt Kibbe is the President of FreedomWorks. --Erick The current correction in the housing market is painful for Wall Street and many homeowners. Not missing an opportunity to ‘solve’ a ‘crisis,’ Congress is attempting to save the day with the Dodd-Frank bailout bill that is scheduled to hit the Senate floor later today. While supporters try to sell the bill as legislation to help folks facing foreclosure, a closer look shows who benefits and who ultimately pays.
