    "This is sheer genius."

    In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify.

    His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-CN) explained, "Passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it."

    I can't add anything to this.

    If the government owned all housing and apportioned it out, wouldn't that just solve everything. That way there would be no need to afford home ownership, no one would own a home.

    And you believed it with all your heart, what a dupe, it's bad enough to believe a lie but to spread it when it is so easy to check it for accuracy? Dupe, no wonder you are a republican.
