UNBELIEVABLE!  FDIC news release on Feb 5, 2009, shows they are still evaluating banks for compliance with the CRA (Community Reinvestment Act), which requires financial institutions to make risky mortgage loans in low-income neighborhoods.  It was the CRA that put into place the requirements that led to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the rest of the mortgage industry making the sub-prime loans that precipitated our current financial crisis:  http://www.fdic.gov/news/news/press/2009/pr09036.html

AND STILL MORE!  Make the terms of the mortgage easier for people who are having trouble making their payments?  Yep!  Making the terms easier who have kept their mortgages current?  Nope!:  http://www.fdic.gov/news/news/press/2009/pr09035.html

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
