U.S. Treasury’s Profit Sweep of Housing Giants Threatens Sustained Recovery
WASHINGTON, May 2, 2014 – Tim Pagiliara, Executive Director of Investors Unite and Eva Clayton, Former N.C. Congresswoman and former Assistant Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, discussed on a media teleconference yesterday that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had failed federally mandated stress tests due to the terms of the Third Amendment which has siphoned away $205 billion in profits. They emphasized how the 100% profit sweep undermines the recapitalization of the GSEs leaving shareholders empty handed, while threatening the recovery of the U.S. housing market.
“The stress test was an academic exercise meant to push the Administration’s agenda that Fannie and Freddie should be eliminated. It illustrates how outrageous and egregious the government and administration’s behaviors have become toward investors.”
Tim Pagliara, Executive Director of Investors Unite and a shareholder invested in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In a recent statement, Pagliara reiterated demand for an inclusive process.
Eva Clayton, former congresswoman from N.C., former Asst. Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. This week, Clayton spoke out against Johnson-Crapo for its failure to address affordable housing goals.
