housing recovery planThis real estate recovery plan is comprised of three main parts:

#1.  a $75 billion fund would subsidize homeowners struggling to pay their mortgages.

#2. housing finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may invest a further $100 billion in mortgages to mop up more home loans and spur fresh lending.

#3. Washington may inject a further $100 billion into each of the mortgage giants, protecting them against losses as they expand their massive reach into the housing market.

Obama said: "We will help between seven and nine million families restructure or refinance their mortgages so they can avoid foreclosure." 

The plan is designed to help up to 5 million borrowers refinance if their mortgages are owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. It also provides incentive payments to mortgage lenders in an effort to convince them to help up to 4 million borrowers on the verge of foreclosure.

Treasury officials said the plan could reach or make affordable one-and-a-half trillion dollars in mortgage debt and deal with a large proportion of the six million foreclosures expected over the next four years.

  1. In 2004, Republicans held an oversight hearing on Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac. They warned us about this crisis back then, but Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, and other Democrats charged racism. Franklin Raines, the disgraced thief Democrat CEO of Fannie Mae, insisted the loans were “riskless”.” There’s plenty of video out there on this showing this fact.

  2. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. When the dust finally settles, both housing prices and mortgage rates will be subsidized by the taxpayer. This, amigos, is just the next step on the glorious road to socialism. It truly does take a village.
