Bernanke and Schumer say, "stimulus is needed"... The DemoCraps have a plan to "jumpstart the economy". WHAT? Are they stupid? They all fail to recognize: (1) The US has been on a consumer rampage for the last 25 years... spending "all we have + all we can borrow". (2) Those willing to "live on credit at the expense of their home equity", have already done so. (3) There are many more of us who wouldn't refi our homes to buy an SUV or take an extravagant vacation regardless of interest rates or Gummint rhetoric. The US consumer is much like a burned-out ash. No amount of "gasoline on the fire" is going to generate a flame beyond burning the gasoline. I'm certain the Gummint and Fed will do the "hyper-inflationary money pump" and "reduce rates to 0%" in an effort to "stimulate us out of this stagnation", but at some point it will no longer work. We're all totally spent or damned nearly so. UP YOURS, "Jumpstart DemoCraps"!!
