    Rahm Emanuel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Rahm Israel Emanuel[1] (born November 29, 1959) is an American politician currently serving as White House Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama.

    Makes you feel good about the prospects of a prosperous Obama administration, huh?

    y'all do recognize this re-infusion of taxpayer dollars is to cover the bad investments Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made ... government backed gambles, 'heads i win, tails you lose', is a better description. only a fraction of the GSE losses resulted from declines in their conforming loan portfolios
    just another example where the profits are privatized and the losses were socialized
