Refinance Bill Drastically Alters Market

Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D., Calif.) wants to allow all homeowners with traditional, 30-year fixed mortgages backed by Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) and Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) to refinance into market rates, according to spokesman Mike Jensen. Unlike other government initiatives to help troubled borrowers, Cardoza's idea would ignore income, credit history or loan-to-value ratios to lower the cost of owning a home for up to 30 million homeowners.
