It appears some individual states are getting a bit tired of the Federal government overstepping their bounds in regards to states' rights, and they're fighting back (21 in all so far).

So it seems Obama received a sweetheart mortgage loan in 2005 from Northern Trust, a company that has supported Obama's political ambitions since 1990. The 1.32 million dollar loan at a rate of 5.625%, which was below the market rates at that time, should have been considered a political contribution by the FEC (Federal Election Commission). In addition to that rate, which was unavailable to the average borrower, he also paid no loan origination fees or discount points. This particular loan would have saved Obama approximately $110,000 over the life of the loan.
Yeah. I wasn't particularly shocked myself. [(h/t) maannews]
