Bill O’Reilly vs Barney Frank shoutdown over Fannie Mae

This video perfectly illustrates the deterioration in the quality of the policy discussion in the country today.  Issues surrounding the government’s role in housing finance are serious and hugely important in people’s lives.  The name calling and shouting illustrated in this video drowns out the attempt to have the necessary thoughtful discussion.

Come on people!  Let’s reject this type of behavior and get on with solving these problems.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
