<quoted text> The Fed is hardly a left wing communist organization E1. When THEY say more stimulis is needed, I would think the reality of that would become obvious ! That's why I posted it.
I have no love for the Fed or it's chairman, that is the organization of big business, run by big business and for big business, and is no friend of a small businessman like me. Ever watch the Dow, E1 ? Notice how the Dow reacts to statments from the Fed ?
I agree with ONE thing in your post...a different approach is needed, too bad you want to return to the same one that didn't work in 1982. You asked "how much is enuf ?" E1, right back at ya !
No, it's too bad that YOU want to return to the one that made things worse.

Obama's had three years and nothing he's done has worked. Why would you want to give him another shot?

When someone tells me that things were worse than they thought, my first reaction is “I guess you didn’t give it enough thought?” When you’re talking about the supposedly worst recession since the great depression, something that would require A LOT of deep thought, then your failure is due to incompetence.

As to the Fed, they simply don’t know what to do. Normally they would lower interest rates to stimulate investment. But the interest rates are already so low that there’s nowhere to go and have any great impact.

I don’t know where you got your news, but according to the notes of the Fed’s June meeting, only a couple of members were for stimulus:

“A few members expressed the view that further policy stimulus likely would be necessary to promote satisfactory growth in employment and to ensure that the inflation rate would be at the Committee’s goal.”

That’s not exactly “overwhelming” support.

“Two participants said additional bond purchases are appropriate, while two others said they would be warranted in the absence of “satisfactory progress” in cutting unemployment or if downside risks increase.“

“The minutes also show policy makers considering the risk that further easing might pose. Some members of the committee noted that excessive purchase of Treasuries could “at some point, lead to deterioration in the functioning of the Treasury securities market that could undermine the intended effects of the policy.”

Maybe we’ll be like France, and offer NEGATIVE interest.

And as to the stimulus they referred to, here is what they were talking about:
“Since the June jobs report, San Francisco Fed President John Williams and the Chicago Fed’s Charles Evans said that the central bank could add additional stimulus through a third round of asset purchases, this time including housing debt.”

“If further action is called for, the most effective tool would be additional purchases of longer-maturity securities, including agency mortgage-backed securities,” Williams said in a July 9 speech in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. Evans said he would have favored the Fed taking stronger action in June.”

Not quite what Obama wants to do is it?

It is sad that liberals are so blind and stupid. I mean when Bush was in office,he did the stimulis plan and you idiots were saying he was giving money to big business. Obama spends more in less time and he's trying to better the economy. This is typical thinking of liberals. You hate the rich because they are rich. What kind of stupid thinking is that?Mitt cant help that he's rich and smart and you idiots are dumb and stupid and lazy. He worked hard for his money and knows how to manage the economy,unlike the crack addict in there now
"Crack addict?" No need to even comment on the core of your hatred of Obama.

By the way, you're quite insane if you think anyone with half a brain is going to be fooled into thinking Romney is a rags to riches story.

I'm unhappy with the ACA...but only because it isn't the public option, like we were sold during Obama's 2008 campaign.

If the Tea Party radicals were elected to oppose everything that Obama is trying to get passed (and they are certainly doing this), then why are they "enjoying" single digit approval numbers?

When you get yours, and let us know, I will be sure of the fact that people who don't pay for their own food but use food stamps are freeloaders.
It's not going well. They said I make too much. So I met with a retired couple renting one of my places, and asked how they make it.

The told me to immediately divorce my wife. They did that because they now get two SS checks – if they were married, they’d only get one. Plus, they get two sets of food stamps. If they were married, they’d get one larger one, but it would still be less than two separately.

In addition, they get more help with heating bills. The government limits how many times you can get this assistance. Two single people get more than one couple.

So I told my wife that we had to get divorced to get the free stuff.

The hospital staff has been very nice, and they say I’ll be released on Friday.

Well,if it isn't the Obama cheerleader. I guess now you are going to say i hate him because he's black huh?
I guess you believe me since you don't have a brain at all. The point still is the rich are hated by idiots like you cause they are rich. Meanwhile you are to stupid and lazy to come up with anything to get rich from.Mitt is very intelligent and knows how to make his money grow.Obama knows how to make america's money disapear. Oh and make morons like you think it's Bush doing it even tho he's been out of office for almost 8 years now. So jerkoff, lets here your great answer for that,all your b/s and lack of brain can make something up i guess

Hey, you just have to admire the political courage of Republican House members - they voted to take health care away from 30+ million Americans, to take thousands of 20-somethings off their parents' health plans, and to permit denial of health care coverage to people with disabilities or pre-existing conditions. Not only do they not give a s**t about the rest of us, they don't give a s**t what we think about it. No fear.
They care for the Very Rich and that is all,pay no taxes,and screw the working and little people.
Wrong, the Republicans want to repeal this bill that sixty percent of Americans dislike and which has twenty one separate tax increases and replace it with a bill that includes the few parts that Americans want. I want you to pay for my health care but I don't want to pay for yours. Your misuse of the upper case identifies you.

Wow,thats an amazing thing.They dont share the same ideas,because they are diffrent.Capt. Obvious, you should run for President. With all of that vast knowledge,you could be an idiot just like what we have in there now.

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay on retirement. While Politicians hold their political positions
in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full-pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.
Nor does offering a cut rate health care plan for everyone but those same politicians.
What would you say to a Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall
make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law
that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to
the citizens of the United States ."
The reason they get those goodies is because they make the rules and our Military is unimportant to most of them. The Amendment will never pass because they would't want it to pass.It would be an excellent Amendment though.

By your logic, George Soros would be a better choice for president than Mitt Romney. Thanks for the enlightenment.

Now, now OT, ya just condemned the House for doing the same thing over and over. Obama has already spent 1 TRILLION in stimulus, but because of ZILCH in results, you are advocating doing the same "thing" again.(One might conclude you think an action ok for the dems but not the pubs.) Just exactly how much is enuf?? The first TRILLION didn't work, why should the 2nd or 3rd?? I wouldn't think it takes a rocket scientist to realize obama's policies are STIFLING growth/jobs/recovery and a different approach is needed.
when you say that the stim didnt work....

you mean it didnt enrich any corporate pigs...

which plainly isnt true, it most certainly did.

so it DID work for your party's constituents as well.

it also put people back to work, repairing our badly ailing infrastructure.

is that a waste?? I bet you think it is.

the teapublican govenors slammed the stim in public, but embraced it to help fight off budget shortfalls in private.

THEY obviuosly didnt actually believe their own rhetoric...

but you SURE do.
