ALEXANDRIA, Va. — NCUA Chairman Michael E. Fryzel said yesterday that any program to buy bad mortgages from credit unions should not be financed by the NCUSIF, but by the Treasury Department’s Troubled Asset Relief Program.

“That is something I do not believe in and do not regard that as something we are going to do,” he said in an interview with Credit Union Times. “There are almost 90 million people in this country who have their money in credit unions, and that fund is there to protect their deposits. It’s not for the use of purchasing troubled assets.”
