Barnes blasts blackest comedy of Dodd-Frank, signals retreat toward “common sense”

In blackest comedy, the regulators cited as a principal reason to retreat that credit is already far too tight.” Lobbing a few Tomahawks, Barnes says, will only cause a pause in the rate adjustments. What will make a difference for mortgages? “Six regulators agreed that the central mortgage provisions of Dodd-Frank are bad ideas.” ##
