Gov debate: McKenna to Inslee

If you could do it over, would you make it possible to make it easier to get mortgagest for people with poor credit?

Inslee: The problem was de-regulation of Wall Street. I stood up to Bill Clinton and my party on the repeal of Glass Stieglitz. I don't blame the homeowners. I blame Wall Street for the financial collapse. Some people were over their heads. But the answer is not to reduce people's access to credit.

McKenna: The question was whether to release standards, making it easier for people with poor credit to obtain loans. It invited speculators in.

Inslee: The McKenna Romney view is the problem is because of homeowners. I believe it's because of Wall Street.
