WASHINGTON, DC-The Obama government will discuss the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac next Tuesday at a public conference. In the third quarter of the financial year, Freddie and Fannie together have posted a loss of $9 billion, and it will require an estimated $148 billion just to stay afloat.
