Treat: Taxpayers May Soon Be Freed from Haunted Housing Bailouts

The WasteWatcher is the staff blog of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) and the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW). For questions, contact blog@cagw.org.


The newly-appointed Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria is working hard to curtail unnecessary government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) expansion, protect taxpayers, and unwind the government’s dominant role in the nation’s mortgage market.  After the apathetic five-year tenure of the previous director, Calabria’s plans for reform are a promising light at the end of the tunnel.   He is pressing forward with a measured but ambitious program to rein in the GSEs by requiring them to accumulate more private capital, a significant step toward freeing them from the yoke of government conservatorship.
