Risky Business

Oh boy. The government on Wednesday relaxed capital requirements at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as part of a plan to inject an additional $200 billion of financing for home loans. ...It was the third

Double Down: Fed Regulators Let GSE's Expand Mortgage Leverage

BY

Another turn in the mortgage meltdown is marked by today's announcement (ht Calculated Risk) that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's regulators are allowing them to reduce their capital reserves from 30 percent to 20 percent. The result: expanded mortgage lending by scandal-plagued, politically controlled firms into a declining real estate market with fewer assets to back up that lending....

Ore. Candidate Repays Old Debts Before New Run

Kevin Mannix has paid off some old debts in preparation for a new campaign. Mannix is trying to fill the congressional seat that opened with the retirement of Rep. Darlene Hooley, D-Ore. The Salem Republican ran for attorney general and 2000 and governor in 2002 and 2006. He lost all three races and was left with hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign debts that were not paid off until he started considering this latest race.

Ethanol Mandates Hitting Urban Poor

BY

Agribusiness welfare-- from farm subsidies to the ethanol fuel mandate-- is helping drive up feed and food costs throughout the supply chain.  Congressional and Bush Administration policy favors corn farmers over everyone else, and higher prices are the result of recent changes in U.S.

Tuesday Morning Round Up

BY Melissa Murphy

A little Tuesday morning reading. And a bit of liberal blog linking. All in fun, of course. Suicide bombers are just misunderstood Now we're supposed to feel sorry for the men who go out and kill our troops and their fellow citizens because they're trying to get attention and gain their five seconds of fame. There's no amount of Oprah Winfrey or Dr. Phil to explain away, or sugar coat what these men do. It's despicable. (Via Yahoo News)

Earmark Moratorium Rejected

Last Thursday, Senator Jim DeMint wanted to stop earmarks in the Federal budget and he had the support of both Republicans and Democrats for this measure. Even with the bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate for an earmark moratorium, this legislation failed due to the pork kings and queens wanting to have the ability to fund pet projects and pay favors back to campaign donors. Whatever happened to representing the common good of those in your states? I am quickly beginning to lose faith in a representative government, because this behavior shows that some U.S. Senators are more concerned about doing what is best for themselves.

Senate and House Vote to Continue Earmark Favor Factory

Despite a surge of grassroots and political support, a one-year moratorium on pork-barrel earmarks fell short in the Senate last night. Senator Jim DeMint and a bipartisan coalition of his colleagues offered an amendment to ban earmarks for the 2009 fiscal year, but the amendment was defeated 29-71. Senator DeMint deserves credit for taking the lead in the Senate on this important issue.
