(1) Consists of all payments on debt, including regularly scheduled principal payments, payments at maturity, payments resulting from calls and payments for any other repurchases.
 
(2) For the three months ended March 31, 2010, we revised the weighted-average interest rate on short-term issued and total issued debt primarily to reflect weighting based on transaction level data.
 
Debt funding activity in the first quarter of 2011 was lower compared with the first quarter of 2010 primarily because we decreased our redemptions of callable debt and had a lower amount of outstanding debt that matured in the first quarter of 2011, which reduced the amount of debt we needed to issue. In addition, our funding needs decreased because of a decrease in purchases of delinquent loans from MBS trusts. During the first half of 2010, we purchased a significant amount of loans from MBS trusts that were four or more consecutive monthly payments delinquent.
 
We believe that continued federal government support of our business and the financial markets, as well as our status as a GSE, are essential to maintaining our access to debt funding. Changes or perceived changes in the government’s support could materially adversely affect our ability to refinance our debt as it becomes due, which could have a material adverse impact on our liquidity, financial condition and results of operations. On February 11, 2011, Treasury and HUD released a report to Congress on reforming America’s housing finance market. The report provides that the Administration will work with FHFA to determine the best way to responsibly wind down both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The report emphasizes the importance of proceeding with a careful transition plan and providing the necessary financial support to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the transition period. For more information on GSE reform, see “Legislative and Regulatory Developments—GSE Reform.”
 
In addition, future changes or disruptions in the financial markets could significantly change the amount, mix and cost of funds we obtain, which also could increase our liquidity and roll-over risk and have a material adverse impact on our liquidity, financial condition and results of operations. See “Risk Factors” in this report and in our 2010 Form 10-K for a discussion of the risks we face relating to (1) the uncertain future of our
