Or more specifically Wayne Barrett? I urge everyone to read the rather lengthy article. To see the most important thing – what your vote does, what it allows, and what consequences come from it. Far from Mr. Barrett’s conclusions – I take umbrage with his not pointing out one thing:
“When HUD released the next set of goals in 2004, it reported that after Cuomo’s previous edict, there had been a sudden spurt of GSE subprime investment, “partly in response to higher affordable-housing goals set by HUD in 2000.” Fannie had gone from $1.2 billion in subprime-mortgage and securities purchases in 2000 to $9.2 billion in 2001 and $15 billion in 2002″
Emphasis is all mine! So from the years 2000-2004 (Bush’s First term) when there was nothing but a flurry of scrupulous lenders – who preyed upon the American Dream, who canvassed neighborhoods, took rolls of risky credit people & ramped it up. I remember the call to legislate against this sort of predatory lending – that fell on deaf ears, and was never appropriately handled by the Republican led congress, and certainly we had a president who had other things on his mind, like a war for Oil.
