Taxpayers ARE paid by Fannie - From the Fannie Mae Website - Read please - quote
In the first quarter of 2013, we reported pre-tax income of $8.1 billion‚ our fifth consecutive quarterly profit and the largest quarterly pre-tax income in the company’s history. Our profits go back to taxpayers. Through June 30‚ 2013‚ Fannie Mae have paid taxpayers $95.0 billion in dividends. But we measure our progress by more than profit alone.
Ultimately, we measure our progress not only by paying taxpayers and improving the housing finance system‚ but also by the difference we make in people’s lives. This is where the value we deliver and our values intersect.
Sorry according to the bail out agreements in 2008 no money received by the treasury could count as repayment towards debt instead it would considered as dividend on taxpayer investment to bail both out.. Fannie and Freddie still owe 187 billion dollars to taxpayers. BOTH WOULD HAVE BEEN BANKRUPT IF IT WAS NOT FOR TAXPAYERS PICKING UP THE PIECES OF A COLLAPSED HOUSING MARKET.
