Should the FHA cut premiums?

Yes, the MMIF has surpassed the 2 percent minimum. It’s time to help first-time home buyers.
Yes, but not until mid-2016 at least, when we see how the fund is doing.
No. The MMIF needs to rebuild and prepare for another potential downturn – just in case.
No. We believe the minimum ratio should actually be raised to 4 percent or higher.
I am undecided.
