Bernanke to Congress: Destruction closer than you think

Even Bernake is admitting that if congress doesn't start cutting spending like Ron Paul has been suggesting... we're doomed.

CNBC Reports:

Warning that our nation's fiscal health has deteriorated appreciably since the onset of the financial crisis and the recession, Bernanke called upon lawmakers to confront the long term fiscal challenges sooner rather than later. If lawmakers don't confront them, they'll find themselves confronted by them.

I realize this was reported in Feb. 2011. The fact that nothing has been done to address his and our concerns makes it even more relevant today.

Ben Bernanke

is just putting it out there soo when (not if), things go down hill, it's "Congress" sole fault, not his, he did his best to "warn Congress" while continuing with printing money and teaching the future generation how printing money is super-duper-good and makes perfect sense...

"I Told You So"

He's laying the groundwork for scape-goating Congress. Congress, of course, will blame him.

Voters will probably blame both, even though, ultimately, voters and non-voters are really to blame for letting this go on.

Bottom line: education. Ron Paul needs to have the national stage when it comes time to deal with the panic that may ensue as things fall apart.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Voters generally hope the blame for their troubles lies far away

If only the really bad guys lose this election, my world will be a better place. On election day, blame lies with those being voted out. Alas, after the election, I will be comforted to feel the worst is over. 'Happy days are here again.' [Pick up broom. Continue sweeping up political party mess from the wild night before.]

Ben's a drug dealer

This is like a drug dealer telling his customer that he should take it easy on the drug he is using before it destroys him. If Bernanke really wants congress to stop spending how about he stops printing money and stops making the interest rates so low. Simple logic points to Ben being the enabler. Are they really all that stupid?

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Yeah, he wants to keep the

Yeah, he wants to keep the 'beast alive' so he can suck more blood out of it, or at the very least, avoid taking blame himself...

There should be a 'bizzaro' Nobel Peace prize for scum like Bernanke...

'Destruction of an economy' Uncle has so much experience.

Uncle Ben has studied the Great Depression & presses on to create an even greater one.

His presses continue to run hot. Very hot.

Bernanke Endorses Ron Paul

That's how I read his statement. Bernanke declares Romney's and Obama's budget plans catastrophic.

Took him a few years to come our way, and now, we welcome you Mr. Ben Bernanke.

No...

It comes from the Onion. Real credible, nothing to see here except that which we would love to hear.

True however, nothing has changed...we are still on the same collison course with economic collapse and there is nothing they can or will do except exactly what they have always done and that is try to delay those events as long as possible in order to find a place to hide when the SHTF and save their heads from being stuck on pikes!

Did that really just come.........

out of Bernanke's mouth? Since he has been in charge that is the only true thing I think he has ever said. I'm shocked.

I'm laying 5 to 1 that "the Bernak"

is in handcuffs by the end of 2012 along with Bush the elder. Expect a Romney indictment and a Paul in the WH.

Bernake's vision for America

is inspired (Rothschild influenced) more by the Greek model with austerity measures imposed upon the American people while his "daddy" buys even more American resources paid for on the backs of the American taxpayer.

A vision that is a far cry from what Dr. Paul is proposing.

Did I look at the date wrong?

Isn't that article from 4/09/2011? It's still true today anyway.

Yep, It is even more true

Yep, It is even more true today. Apparently that statement was made before the debt exceeded the GDP. We are well on our way to becoming another Greece.

LOL! That's like a drug dealer

LOL! That's like a drug dealer telling a junkie he needs to stop his cocaine addiction, while at the same time, handing him a Charlie Sheen-sized rock, on the house.

Too late to change your tune now banksters..

We're on to you. Don't think for a second that your attempt to shift blame and responsibility onto the lawmakers negates nor hides your own wrong doing in this financial mess.

That way they can't blame the runaway money printing on him.
