Page 10 of the FHFA report, gives forward expected losses under three scenarios. The third is really awful–it assumes a further reduction in house prices by 1/4, which would be a lot. But under the other two scenarios, the net cost to taxpayers (draws less dividends owed to Treasurt) would be $6 to 19 billion. This is real money, but hardly cataclysmic. It does suggest that the vast majority of the losses are already behind us.
