I can't believe what I am reading. If business' lose money, they should go out of business. Do they really think that we will allow this?

How CAN we allow it? That is OUR tax money going to them! Hell, I would rather see tax money go to offset the rising prices in gas!

They pay themselves bonus' for mismanaging corporations and corrupting our democratic system to line their own pockets. This is bull# and it's time to stand up against these terrorists!

This is absolutely astonishing. This company shouldn't get a dime. They should be allowed to go under, and all the mortgages they own should be either waived, sold to a competitor, or transferred to the U.S. Treasury.

The fact they even had the balls to request ANY further aid should be grounds to have all the CEOs, board members, etc. admitted into a mental institution, for they are clearly insane.

This won't be all of it either, you mark my words - the amount of # these banks have "off the books" is enough to destroy the global economy multiple times over.
If this debt gets transferred to public, they will wait a bit and simply transfer some more of the hidden losses back onto the balance sheet and then ask for more.
It will never end unless we end it for them.

The word "Jubilee" springs to mind - anyone remember this concept? Look it up, it's supposed to be an integral part of this usuary system. Seems we forgot about that bit.

Make me happy and let it die already.
These financial cancers are killing us, we need to start chopping off some limbs and let them die.
Otherwise they will kill the body.
I am sure they will get the QE (insert next number).

The government will bail them out OR "we will crash the financial system and there will be martial law in the streets of America"...At least that's what they said last time, can't see why they wouldn't try it again.

How utterly disgusting, that a once great nation now falling apart at the seams will give these bastards billions while its people now many living on welfare and food stamps suffer. This suffering was caused by the very same financial institutions that now cry for multi billion goverment handouts to keep paying its director multi million dollar bonuses. Sickening..just sickening.
Wake up America.

Heres another article about this. Pretty much says the same thing.

Fannie Mae seeks $8.5 billion more in federal aid


WASHINGTON – Fannie Mae asked the government Friday for an additional $8.5 billion in aid after declining home prices caused more defaults on loans guaranteed by the mortgage giant.



The company said it lost $8.7 billion in the first three months of the year. Those losses led Fannie to request more than three times the federal aid it sought in the previous quarter. The total cost of rescuing the government-controlled mortgage buyer is nearing $100 billion — the most expensive bailout of a single company.


Most expensive bailout.....


Combined with the bailout of sibling company Freddie Mac, the government expects their rescue to cost taxpayers about $259 billion. That money will cover the mortgage giants' losses on soured loans made in the midst of the housing bubble.


259 billion.....


The Obama administration unveiled in February a plan to slowly dissolve the mortgage companies. The aim is to reduce the government's role in the mortgage market. Exactly how that would happen was left for Congress to decide.


Maybe these companies want as much money as they can before/if they are scrapped? (I doubt they will be scrapped btw)

english banks will be following soon then.

just because its a bank why should it get bailout? joe blogg down the road wont get a bailout if his paint buisness collapses will he? banks just want to make money from ppl without money, thats the problem with banks. #*&# the banks is what i say. they caused this by giving credit to ppl who they know cant pay it back. and thats not a dig at poor ppl, its just the way we live now.

new tv comes out, we want it, we got no money for it so stick it on the credit card and pay interest,

gone are the days of saving up for it.

AND then they bet AGAINST those loans and make a killing because they know for sure that the loans are junk
It is not possible to lose at this game - unless you don't know it's going on then you will always lose. Nice game.

Ever since I learned about what was happening within the mortgage "industry" back in 2007, I have been trying to figure out who has been receiving the PMI (private mortgage insurance) payments on all these defaulted loans. I thought that money was to protect the lien holder. But, I never find mention of those funds in all these discussions of bailouts.

Does anyone know where the money goes?
