Buffett: Fed hurting savers correct Fed policy

BECKY: Another thing Charlie had to say when he was asked about the Fed and their policies when it comes to interest rates, he said, look, the Fed looked around and they hurt the savers because they were convenient.

BUFFETT: Yeah, well, it had to hurt somebody. Bernanke had tough choices to make, but he decided to step on the gas pedal, in terms of monetary policy, and he brought down rates to virtually unheard of levels, and kept them there. And he's still got his foot on the pedal and that really does hurt savers. I mean, it has made it extremely difficult for all kinds of people who live on fixed-income investments. But, unfortunately, that was a by-product. And probably Bernanke, maybe correctly, and I would say probably correctly, decided that the dangers to the economy were greater if he didn't do it.

Buffet is one of America's biggest deceptions

He has made stealing inheritances into an art form.
He preys on families who can't afford to pay estate taxes on inherited businesses.

He lobby's Con-Gress to RAISE or SUSTAIN HIGH DEATH TAXES so he can buy up good businesses for pennies on the dollar.

People worship this piece of shit hitman because he has money.

Ged has created and government borrowed $17 trillion.

On average the government has borrowed 8% of the money supply a year for 99 years.

Congress doesn't care, the debt they created can't be questioned.

If Congress goes bankrupt the repo man take $17 trillion of our stuff.

The FED is making money and Congress is not liable so neither will stop.

Free includes debt-free!

He and his company are among

He and his company are among the main beneficiaries of Fed policies. Why would Buffet have a problem with them?
