Reid has said he does not agree with eliminating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
“The president said just a few days ago we are going to have to take a look at Fannie and Freddie. These are the government organizations that have made homeownership so easy. I don’t agree with the president,” Reid said in August 2013. “He says he wants to get rid of them. I think we’d better be very, very careful in doing that. I will look closely at his recommendations because on their face, I don’t like them.”
When asked by Ted Gayer, vice president and director of Economic Studies, during the Q&A session whether he has the authority to end conservatorship over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Director Watt responded:
“Well clearly we have the authority to end the conservatorship. It’s in the statute. The statute gave us the authority to start it and it goes with that the authority to end it. But the alternatives would not be desirable alternatives. So, I think our role, and the reason we work so hard in the current space, is to make sure that we have a solid plan for continuing the operations of Fannie and Freddie, and the Federal Home Loan Banks, so that there will be liquidity and efficiency in the housing market; and that we continue to operate as we have operated without interrupting housing finance in this country, because housing finance is such a critical part of the economy. To stop, or stand in place, just simply is not an option. We’ll continue it and I think our goals are consistent with continuing the operation of Fannie and Freddie in the here and the now and we’ll do that until there is legislation passed.”
