Barry Hussein has been prancing around all day bragging about the 20 Billion dollars he extorted from banks in a strange "homeowner settlement" the A.P. compares to the "tobacco" settlement years ago. What is it all about? Does the federal government allege that people were cheated by banks when their property was foreclosed? That's not true. Does the federal government allege that banks purposely loaned money to people who couldn't pay the loans back? That might be true but banks can't make money from bad loans so what was their motivation? To stay in business when democrats threatened civil rights lawsuits if they didn't make bad loans. Why not force Fannie Mae to pay back the bad loans? Fannie Mae is part of the government?
