    Dear Prof. Black,

    This is a unique opportunity for you to help save America! You should tell Congress that
    (1) Look beyond the symptoms.
    (2) Identify the root cause of the housing bubble, which is the CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) and the creation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, nothing else.

    --- Frank
