    Freddie and Fannie are being managed responsibly, and aren’t doing further
    economic damage to themselves now that they are not losing money on current operations controlled by U.S. Goverment.

    The Billons Of U.S. Dollars From Fannie Mae Already Has Been
    Received By Our Treasury Dept Which Is Being Used To Support
    Our Economy Today, reported a record profit of $17.2 billion for 2012,
    payed $59.4bn back to US taxpayers QE1 of 2013, QE2 Due on Aug 8
    2013. Fannie Mae received about $116bn in loans. With its latest dividend,
    it will have repaid about $95bn.

    The losses, as we understand it, were from business decisions before the takeover. Geithner has argued that Freddie and Fannie are enormously complicated to unwind and therefore the Obama administration will address them in a separate legislative effort. Freddie and Fannie have already been reformed, to some extent, by virtue of being placed into conservatorship.

    Freddie and Fannie are not losing money as they are currently operated – which means they aren’t making the deficit any worse.

    This is an important point that has to be repeated – as Fannie and Freddie operate today, going forward, there is no loss, The losses are the losses that occurred before we took the first step towards reforming them – we the Democrats – and nothing we could do today will diminish those losses.

    Treat Fannie Mae the same as Taxpayers money that bailed out the
    banks, we gave them a chance to recover and they did, Fannie Mae
    is on track towards repayment, why pull the plug on them now? Respectfully Submitted American Retired Veteran
