Fannie Mae is asking for an additional $15 billion in government aid after posting another big loss in the third quarter as the taxpayer bill from the housing market bust keeps rising.

The government-controlled company continued to see a dramatic surge of borrowers fall behind as the unemployment rate climbs. At the end of last month, about 4.7 percent of Fannie Mae's borrowers had missed at least three payments. That's nearly triple last year's level.

I was just debating with GreatDay the other day and he seemed to think they'll prosper and do fine. Glad he's not handling my affairs!

What they need to do is close down Freddie and Fannie, ban them from giving out any more loans, and let them fade away.
