Mortgage Deal Is Built on Tradeoffs

Does anyone care how many lives were destroyed by these banks and continue to get hammered everyday??

NICK TIMIRAOS-

Banks won a handful of concessions in the landmark $25 billion settlement of alleged foreclosure abuses, as federal officials struck a balance between their desire to be tough on lenders and the need to provide immediate relief to the housing market.

A key sticking point in the year-long negotiations was how to structure mortgage write-downs, and who should bear the losses.

The banks that are party to the settlement—Ally Financial Inc., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co ., and Wells Fargo & Co .—heavily and publicly resisted initial government proposals that they absorb the hit for write-downs of loans held by investors for which the banks collect payments. They argued that doing so amounted to transfers of wealth to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and investors in mortgage-backed securities such as hedge funds and pensions.
