Doesn't exist do you think as a government and -- is -- something that you think could be done privately.
It can be done privately but nobody's gonna get in the game you have to remember who -- they insuring insuring first time homebuyers that's more than 50% of their -- And high risk loans people who don't have great credit all the time.
So who really wants to get Nike knowing if they don't exist nobody's gonna step up well at a price they wouldn't -- a price any thinking -- -- they've been trying to do -- at a price of raising premiums they weren't supposed to have a shortfall that was predicted a year ago they have the shortfall.
They -- -- premiums that wasn't enough.
Now who's gonna jump into the issues -- -- is you know it's gonna happen.
We're gonna bail them out I would bail everybody else -- keep them in business and so far as if predictions that they gonna make everything fine by the time the deadline -- that is all about.
Ring get about it is going to be a short fall and there's going to be bella will there be a ripple effect obviously FHA backing these first time home -- will affect the wider mortgage market.
Well you know and it does -- have effects in fact the entire housing market because it's just more bad news for the word bail out and housing together is always bad news now fortunately the housing market has been doing very well.

At a time when everybody was raising their down payment -- you've got to -- 25% down to get a home.
The FHA was still backing loans that only 3.5 percent down -- I -- make sense we'll can't tell you it's easy to say it doesn't make sense because why not let those people get more capital to -- -- personal or rafters.
Or rent and certainly is a lot of friends -- -- going up but there's a lot of cheap real estate available this is a one time opportunity for a lot of these folks to buy a house that are really reduced price and remember abide by the house.
There helping the housing market to -- taking that house out of foreclosure and actually having a family lives there be analysts they don't Rick Perry I goes into foreclosure again I am and I don't see his clothes are all going up with those loans I shouldn't say that the foreclosure rate is going up with the delinquent payments ninety days do is still going up and that is very scared -- the future.
