In this terrible situation, lets be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think of their health care.

Barney Frank, September 25, 2003


I do not think we are facing any kind of a crisis. That is, in my view, the two government sponsored enterprises we are talking about here, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are not in a crisis.
Barney Frank, September 10, 2003 Audio and/or video clip available

Speaking at a House Financial Services Committee hearing, Congressman Barney Frank defended Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
I worry, frankly, that there's a tension here. The more people, in my judgment, exaggerate a threat of safety and soundness, the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury, which I do not see. I think we see entities that are fundamentally sound financially and withstand some of the disaster scenarios.
Barney Frank, September 10, 2003


[John Gray] is the only human who has to worry about Dutch Elm disease.
Barney Frank, 1988
