DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans do not feel government regulation is a solution. They want better guidelines to stop predatory loan agreements, promote responsibility for affordable agreements to both buyers and lenders, and end lending quotas that lead to poor company lending choices. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats are focused on expanding the funding for the National Housing Trust Fund and the Neighborhood Stabilization program. They want to increase federal and state programs to reduce homelessness and restructuring housing market policies. source
