One industry partisan that I know recently predicted that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac very likely will earn at least $20 billion each year (combined) for as far as the eye can see.

But at $20 billion a year the debt can be repaid in five years. Here’s something to think about: should they be given a second chance – but with strict limitations on what they can do? Something to think about…
