    The Issue

    We believe that the right answer to the future of housing finance is a transition to the private market. Our mission is to ensure that the federal government enacts legislation that responsibly winds down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and sets up a new system funded by private capital with a limited government role and strong regulatory oversight. Learn More

Our organization is guided by three principles:

Reorganize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as private bond guarantors funded by private capital, without any special privileges or a Federal Charter;

Protect and ensure the continued availability and affordability of the 30-year fixed rate mortgage, which is the main engine of the housing market and the primary avenue for sustainable homeownership;

The rule of law is the basis for American Capitalism and must be acknowledged and respected in order for properly functioning capital markets. This is the cornerstone for attracting private capital to any market, especially the housing finance market. The rules of the game cannot be changed in the middle of an inning.
