    News reports call "Fannie" simply a "company," omitting the fact that it is a GSE, or Government Sponsored Enterprise, and all that government sponsorship implies. That seems to be lost in currrent reporting.

    Lets not forget. The pet project of Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Cris Cox and the entire Democratic party. Oh yeah. Lets just dump some more money into that crew. Minus the 80 million one of the directors was payed or took off with. Jeeze. No wonder the country is going broke.

    But wait, there is more...

    With Sallie Mae in financial troubles due to the student loan subprime lending, government expanded student loan financing to Fannie Mae. No wonder why...
