Congress will consider raising guarantee fees even more

Housingwire:

Congress will consider raising the guarantee fees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac charge to lenders in order to pay for tax cuts and avoid the coming fiscal cliff.
Lawmakers voted last year to raise g-fees in order to pay for a previous round of tax cuts. The Congressional Budget Office estimated at the time the increases would bring in $3.3 billion and $4.6 billion in revenue lost from the tax cuts per year.
Lenders pass these costs to the homebuyer, meaning taxpayers are essentially paying for their own tax cuts.
