Watchdog Report, Classifies FHA as, “High Risk”

The Government Accountability Office is saying there is need for actions beyond what has already happened to restore FHA's financial soundness.

When I read this report, what immediately struck me was that there has been no bailout of any kind. They still have a boatload of money in reserve.

OK, so where were the watchdog groups, prior to a nearly $180 billion  bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? When Barney Frank stated, there are no issues with Fannie/Freddie, what was he talking about?

Also, why aren’t VA & USDA considered high risk? No down payments are required for either loan products? If any of this makes any sense, well it sure does not to me.
