GOP to Fed: Stop trying to help the economy

In their most recent debate, the Republican presidential field strongly supported stripping the Federal Reserve of its legal authority to try to boost employment and the economy.

As Rick Santorum put it, Fed efforts to try to increase “employment and dealing with that leads to a fundamental distrust among the American people that they are taking their eye off the ball, which is sound money. They should be a sound money Federal Reserve. That should be their single charter, and that is it.”

Rick Perry went even further, suggesting that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke was abusing his power by trying to boost the economy and thus re-elect President Obama. (That’s curious because Bernanke is a Republican who served as chairman of President Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers and was appointed Fed chair by Bush in 2006.)

“If you are allowing the Federal Reserve to be used for political purposes, that it would be almost treasonous. I think that is a very clear statement of fact,” Perry said. “I am not a fan of the current chairman allowing that Federal Reserve to be used to cover up bad fiscal policy by this administration. And that, I will suggest to you, is what we have seen.”

Now we see that same mindset play out in Congress, with top Republicans insisting that Bernanke halt all Fed efforts to boost the economy. As the Wall Street Journal reports:

“Top Republican congressional leaders, in a rare effort to directly influence Federal Reserve policy, expressed reservations about the central bank taking additional steps to spur the recovery, saying further action could harm the economy.

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), and two other GOP leaders, in a letter Monday to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, urged Fed officials to “resist further extraordinary intervention in the U.S. economy.”

….. They said Fed officials should avoid further action, “particularly without a clear articulation of the goals of such a policy, direction for success, ample data proving a case for economic action and quantifiable benefits to the American people.”

With odds of a double-dip recession rising, the Fed Board is meeting today to decide its next step. A decision will be announced at 2:15.

the GOP telling the Federal Reserve Bank what to do re: the economy is like the Federal Reserve Bank telling the GOP (all politicians) to bail out certain banks, but allow others to fail. the GOP doesn’t want a healthy economy because; “…it’s the economy, stupid” when it comes to 2012. of course, the GOP has helped to destroy the economy since 1981 (”deficits don’t matter” because we can borrow/print more money). it is a co-dependent relationship, in which either side assumes the role of enabler. seriously, as I said, is this news?

The missing piece is always gov’t information on cost benefit.

Gov. Nathan Deal today joined with county officials and company representatives in Meriwether County to announce that Seoul, South Korea-based Mando Corp. plans to open a high-tech manufacturing operation in the Meriwether County Industrial Park.

The company plans to invest $200 million and create 426 jobs through opening this new facility. Mando’s Georgia plant will supply electric power steering gears and anti-lock brakes/ESC to vehicle manufacturers including Chrysler, General Motors, Hyundai and Kia, among others. This site will be Mando’s third location in the United States.

Your response is curious as the two entities I mentioned are, in fact, directly competing with businesses and are not in that regard like the military, FEMA or State Department. They are quasi-businesses in my view and should aim to at least break even if not turn a profit. Otherwise, what need do we have for them since the goods and services they provide are already being provided by other businesses?

Once the dems took over the House and Senate the downward spiral was set into motion.

This nuking futter is asking how the money spent to offset the increased fees associated with Obama deficit plan (most of which will be passed to the American consumer) will help stimulate the American economy?

From the Associated Press,

“It’s not just millionaires who’d pay more under President Barack Obama’s latest plan to combat the deficit.

Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government revenues raised through new or increased fees.

Administration budget documents describe the fees as savings.”

Hoot, from the same link you posted:

“The fees aren’t taxes. They’re charged to people who use government services or receive benefits such as taxpayer-subsidized health care, and they typically defray the government’s cost of providing a service. The fee on corporate jets and other private passenger planes, for example, would raise about $1 billion a year to help finance the cost of air traffic control. Recreational flyers won’t have to pay.”

You’re opposed to people paying a bigger share of the services they receive? You think the taxpayer should keep subsidizing them? Gee, conservatives are hard to figure sometimes.

In addition, the proposed fee increases will take affect years from now, rather than immediately in a bad economy.

The topic is actually kind of amusing. back during the election, a friend of mine told me that his boss made a HUGE deal about voting, and making sure that all the employees took time off to cast a vote for the BEST candidate. Keep in mind that his boss was a big McCain supporter. Well, about a week later, Sarah showed up. The quote from my friends boss was ” Damn, I just told everyone to vote, and now I don’t have anyone to vote for. My friend asked what he meant, and his boss said ” I wasn’t about to vote for the N!@##*R, but I sure as hell won’t vote for a WOMAN! I guess party loyalty really does have it’s limits. As to the topic, apparently Ben was a fine FED chairman right up until Obama decided to keep him.

.The Republicans themselves are *deeply* in favor of more QE, but they’re playing it this way so they can pretend to be the party of “fiscal conservatism”.

Everyone knows the Republicans are equally in the pocket of the bankers, and if they were even remotely serious about stopping the Fed they’d be hard at work on the bill to audit the Fed (which they are almost universally opposed to).

Politicians — ALL POLITICIANS — are deeply in favor of more QE because it lets them kick the can down the road again. There are no responsible politicians in Washington. There are only the occasional performances of responsibility because they serve to damage the other party.

The entire world is watching his desperation right now. “There is nothing worse than raising taxes in a bad economy”, unless of course you are losing your base and class warfare is the only option you have.

Israel should pull back its borders to 1968 locations unless of course you just got decimated in a district that hadn’t elected a republican since the 1920s because the Jewish vote is finally looking at the Obama, anti-Israel, pro-Hesbola platform.

Republicans are totally owned by Big Business. Therefore, they say and do as they are told by the big corporations. The ultimate goal of Big Business is a return to a complete laissez faire state where the Govt. has no power at all over business or the economy. This will allow them to gradually strip away all the benefits employees currently have. Eventually the wealthy will be able to feed their never ending greed for more money at a greatly increased rate and will reduce their workers to people who own nothing and live in a state of filth, disease and crime.

There is one party that fought against every action except to bail out the banks and that party is the gop.

The gop actions are treasonous.

“Obama is diving like a Stukka in every poll that has come out this summer.”

Except in the ones where he beats all the GOP candidates. Go figure that.

Now, are you gonna come back with some random lies about things I’ve done?

Sure GLL, no problem:

“You hammer Palin for writing notes on her palm but have no problem with Obama reading lies that someone else wrote on a teleprompter system. ”

There you go.

Next!

GLL: I’m just looking at the spanking that Democrats are getting anywhere they are running, specially where Obama had endorsed them.

Like in Wisconsin where 2 Republicans were recalled and no Democrats were recalled? Or in NY 26?

Sorry, but your “flavor of the month” argument about how Obama is a loser doesn’t fly. Independents also need something to vote FOR, not something to vote AGAINST.

I’m heading to lunch. You will have to go hysterical on someone else today.

but here’s a hint. If you want everyone to agree with everything you say, this ain’t the place.

“Obama is diving like a Stukka in every poll that has come out this summer.”–Good Little Lib

Yeah, Obama is not following the wisdom of Slick Willy:

When you get to the fork in the road turn right and head back to the center; instead, Obama got to the fork in the road and TOOK IT, which obviously is taking him to the Far Left Wing Fringe…

Obama’s own Hubris/Narcissism will be his downfall :-)

Even Sarah Palin is within 5 pernts…

I don’t believe I’ve ever written that as an objective or goal of mine, but again, nice random pull stuff out of the air come back.

I think you should support Obama and insist that the Democrats do whatever they need to run him in 2012.

I really do.
