Right Wing Lies About Fannie And Freddie

• Republicans tried to push the false narrative that Fannie and Freddie created the housing bubble/meltdown by pushing loans to low-income buyers.

• Only a few years prior, republicans were attacking Fannie and Freddie for not promoting enough borrowing by low-income buyers.

…the Republican position is that Fannie and Freddie caused the bubble by doing what we said they should be doing… but denounced them, at the peak of the bubble, for not doing. Got it?
