Reforming Fannie and Freddie: Why it Matters

Government interference in housing market

In 2008 government bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (Government-Sponsored Enterprises or GSEs) in an attempt to stabilize the housing market and the U.S. economy. In March 2014, Fannie and Freddie will have repaid the taxpayers and are making tens of billions of dollars in profits. Despite the taxpayers being made whole, plus interest, the U.S. Treasury continues to take 100 percent of Fannie and Freddie profits while Fannie and Freddie shareholders are left with nothing.

Legislators are seeking to reform the mortgage market system to make GSEs more accountable and to prevent a repeat mortgage crisis from happening in the future. Flaws in current proposed legislation, such as Corker-Warner and Johnson-Crapo, fail to repay those who hold shares in the two enterprises including pensioners, community banks and individuals.

It has recently been revealed in an internal Treasury memo that the Obama Administration never intended to repay investors yet continued to encourage investment in Fannie and Freddie by outside investors. This deliberate violation of market place rules not only qualifies as theft and market manipulation (securities fraud), but leaves millions of pensioners, community banks and invdividuals holding worthless paper.
