But people will not tolerate any excuses too long. From today's budget report, you could tell they cannot afford to keep FnF on the government's book because Uncle Sam could not afford it. Keeping FnF afloat is the only way to get paid back in time. Killing the currrent investors is like killing the chicken for the eggs.
