On the street is -- about half a percentage point at leases what you mortgage rates could go up.
Here's a plan right now here's that the government overseer Ed DeMarco saying about merging the bond units at Fannie and Freddie he's saying essentially we -- -- create something that could be sold he's also saying.
It could be used as a foundation of the mortgage market.
All of the future so big planned and underway at the bipartisan policy center housing commission run by former senators George initial.
Mel Martinez and former -- director Henry Cisneros they want to wind down and break up Fannie Mae Freddie Mac.
Their balance sheet and turn them into mega -- government bond insurers so this is a sea change.
