Actually i think it was the govt. in the form of Fannie and Freddie that is the root of the mortgage problem and it is Fannie and Freddie that is costing the taxpayer more money than any other bailout and the money will almost certainly not be repaid, ever. It's also interesting that Fannie and Freddie are not being dealt with in any legislation. The banks have responsibility because they bundled garbage loans and sold them as AAA however the main cause of the problem is the govt. that lowered dramatically the lending standards required to get a mortgage.
In any case this is BMW forum so maybe we should get back to discussing the 5 series.
