And who gets to decide if a regulation is out of date, etc.?

re: Death By A Million Regulations
I understand we needed rigid oversight after the subprime meltdown. But these regulations are so inflexible. I was eventually able to refinance with a local bank that keeps the loan in-house (hence can bypass Fannie-Freddie rules). But I didn't get close to the rate of a traditional loan.

Thank Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. It is protecting consumers by making it nearly impossible for them to get a mortgage!

re: Death By A Million Regulations
It is difficult to defend senseless government involvement and often contradictory regulations, however, ...
As long as there is a never ending stream of Dr. Fata's (allegedly prescribed chemo to patients without cancer) or Conrad Murray's or Bernie Madoff's or Lehman Brothers or the JP Morgan $2 billion loss on "egregious mistakes" as described by Bloomberg Press, just to name a few, I feel little pity for regulation and oversight. These industries have only theirselves to thank for the situation.

And if you think it is bad in the medical profession, try banking!

Mortgage regulations are horrible. I could not refinance for the rate I wanted and QUALIFIED FOR because of a Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac regulation that does not apply to my condo building at all yet has to be enforced. It was a year ago and I'm still angry.
