If you said "Republicans who fought regulation," then, congratulations. Not to you,but congratulations to the Democrats and mainstream media for getting you to believe the lie.
Kathleen McKinley does a great job of debunking the lie that Republicans are to blame.
The Center for Responsive Politics' OpenSecrets.org reported on how much money members of Congress had received from Fanny and Freddy since 1989. Their report on September 11 said that Maxine Waters had indeed receive $15,000 from Fannie and Freddie (and, as Michael Moore pointed out, so did Chris Dodd and Barney Frank). In fact current members of Congress received a total of $4.8 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, with Democrats collecting 57 percent of that.Unless you consider Barack Obama, Chris Dodd, John Kerry, Maxine Waters, and other Democrats to be Republicans.
