Department of Justice and the Bank Shakedown - #3644 - Regime Shakes Down Banks for $25 Billion - Rush Limbaugh

That's what really happened. That's the root of the subprime mortgage crisis.

Social justice, affordable housing, the so-called good intentions and don't judge us on the failure of our results.  Read more........
