I believe spekulatius is correct. HERA enables all payments to go to Treasury's general funds. It's in the law signed in 2008. Once in general funds the money gets lost. That money -whether dividends, legal settlements or DTAs- will be no different than any other money Treasury receives. This Ocare payments strategy should be abandoned, in my view. The more transparent theme regarding the NWS has always been "never to share a dime of profit with shareholders". There is even a Treasury memo about it.
I believe there's a real chance that corsi's reporting on the GSE profits funding Ocare through the Treasury is somewhat accurate -- especially after reading the joint congressional report from last year
Money is fungible, how would you determine where the Dollars for a specific expense is coming from? The whole idea makes no sense to me, unless you talk about money laundry.
if you read all of corsi's reports, including a couple with govt data, and then the 200 page joint congressional report on the CSR payments, I think you too will think there's a real chance the GSE profits were used for the Ocare subsidies.
it's possible you are right, that's why I say there's a chance it was directed to CSR payments.
but once again I would say if you read the 2 joint congressional reports and corsi's reports, including the mar13 one (can be found on gselinks.com), I think you'd have some suspicion over the timing of the congressional request, then withdrawal of the CSR funding at the same time of the GSE DTA windfall, combined with the ridiculous stonewalling of the congressional investigation by the prior admin.
it's also possible that the current admin knows this but doesn't want to hurt people if their plan is to eventually stop the sweep. but maybe you're underestimating the power of the anti-gse opposition and thus anything that tilts opinion in favor of the GSEs needs to be used, imo.
