"WASHINGTON -- Oooops! When Congress and the White House put together the recent bipartisan $150 billion economic stimulus package, they raised the maximum mortgage limits in high-cost areas for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. But lawmakers neglected to include a similar increase for the government's primary home purchase program for veterans -- VA-backed loans."
"Department of Veterans Affairs declined to discuss the matter, saying in an e-mail that the "VA cannot comment on why Congress crafted the (stimulus) in the manner in which they did.""
