Give families the chance to be home for the holidays -- confirm Watt

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

It's time for a new regulator at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae—I urge you to confirm Rep. Mel Watt to be the new head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency before the congressional recess begins so that all families have the opportunity to be home for the holidays this year.
There are currently 1,948 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We came to this country to better our lives, to get a piece of the American Dream and have a good place to raise our kids. Now Freddie Mac wants to kick us out, even though we are offering to buy our foreclosed home back for the current value.

They just don't seem to care about families like ours -- it’s time for a new regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- it’s time for the Senate to confirm Rep. Mel Watt as the new Federal Housing Finance Agency Director!
