    This is infuriating. It was 100% foreseeable that issuing credit to bad credit risks with little-to-no-skin-in-the-game in a downdrafted market would result in losses. It is going to be you and I paying for those losses. This goes beyond bad risk management - it's policy based on a terrible incentive structure.

    Yes, although IMO helpful to get us towards normal lending standards. Our political overlords (yes, even Barney Frank) have recently shown that they are willing to tighten FHA standards and increase FHA fees, if the alternative is another bailout.
