WASHINGTON – Feb. 9, 2011 – A White Paper is expected to be released on Friday by President Obama with plans for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  White House officials have indicated that the Goverment will cease involvement in the two companies, but this is not going to happen fast.

moneyGetting rid of Fannie Mae and Freddie would make homeownership more difficult as less mortgages may be issued.  

Florida Realtors explains that the White Paper will report “three options:
1.    No government role beyond oversight through existing federal agencies.
2.    A Government backstop role for mortgages during times of crisis only.
3.    Government involvement at all times.”

Thanks for the link to the original article, it wasn't as lengthy as I feared!  All I can say is that I don't envy the people who have to try to get this all "untangled"!

Christine ~ thanks for the heads up on what's coming our way next.  Government guarantees seem to encourage bad underwriting that the taxpayers can ill afford so change needs to happen...
