    Wait a minute.

    Isn’t this the latest “reform” bill proposed by Senators Franks and Dodds? And isn’t Dodds on his way out of office for retirement but in large part due to pressure from recent improper ethic allegations?

    Finally, I thought that “regulation” was what Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were designed to do and we see how they failed us miserably. Let’s see, if I remember correctly, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were a big reason behind the recent financial woes, if nothing else, because they failed to ‘regulate’ properly the things that led to the big financial collapse a couple of years ago and on top of that, one could argue, contributed greatly to the problem in the first place.

    So why should we now trust anything these two knuckle heads want to propose? They should be ‘run out of Dodge’ along with many others in Washington.

    We can give you PLENTY of names of those who pimped it.”


    Let’s start with Dodds and Franks. Don’t trust these two as far as I can throw them…..and I would love to throw them right out of office.

    I don’t know about anybody else, but I am sick and tired of all the “stonewalling” that goes on in Washington. It never accomplishes anything. The Dems say it is the Repubs fault when they are ‘out of power’ and vice versa. Truth be told, at least in my lifetime, there is enough blame to go around everywhere.

    It’s time for Washington politics to end and ‘grow up’, call a truce, and ‘do the right thing’ to get the ‘people’s business done’. Stop playing the ‘blame game’. I really don’t care who is at fault, just ‘fix it’.

    Finally, more government regulation is Not the answer, whether you are Dem or Repub. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ought to be enough proof for everyone to see that. I don’t care if it was Dems or Repubs behind it or who had their hands in it. If Franks and Dodds were the frontrunners, then yeah, I will mention there names because they were the chief people behind it. If it happen to be a Repub, then they would get the mention. This time it happens to be Dems…..period.

    Therefore, I’m open to letting the free market correct itself and asking our ‘Big Government’ to stand down and get out of the way. Why don’t we try that this time?
