ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the U.S. Congress in 2007 has again failed to pass a bill to reform government-sponsored enterprises (GSE), such as housing lenders. Director of the U.S. Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) James Lockhart used the examples of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when discussing the state of affairs in the housing market. Currently the two are under portfolio caps until if they can prove that their practices have improved.
