Still, it's quite shocking to see companies that together own or guarantee almost 31 million home loans worth about $5.5 trillion get the boot. Or, to put it another way, you know things are bad when mega-losers like AIG ( AIG) and Citigroup ( C) are still hanging around while the two companies that control nearly half of all U.S. mortgages get escorted from the building. Then again, at least AIG and Citigroup are operating under the pretense that they will repay Uncle Sam. That's certainly not the case with Fannie and Freddie, which have already sucked up nearly $150 billion in taxpayer funds and will likely request more bailout dollars down the road. Come to think of it, it's almost poetic. They loosened their lending standards during the housing bubble and as a result are being forced from their home. TheStreet Says: The NYSE foreclosed on Fannie and Freddie. How trippy is that?
