Fitch Ratings said that, based on the Obama’s administration confirmation of ongoing support for the GSEs, the rating agency will likely maintain its long- and short-term issuer default ratings at ‘AAA'/'F1+’ and the long-term senior debt ratings at ‘AAA’ for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The rating firm anticipates that these current ratings will remain in place indefinitely. Both  institutions maintain guaranty and debt obligations that extend as far out as 30 years.
