Injection of "political pressure" is the cure, not Ben's curse

"Bernanke warned that such a step would improperly inject political pressure into the Fed’s private deliberations and affect the officials’ decisions." REALLY?!?

I'm usually not an advocate for medical injections; many of which vary in negative health effects from being ineffective to downright harmful; but an emergency intervention by some serious, Constitutionally oath-bound Representatives of the People OUGHT to remedy and simplify the Fed's doing the right thing. Pressure OUGHT to be applied to bring full accountability to the People or bring the charges up

"The Fed's private deliberations and...officials’ decisions", ARE properly under Congress' purview; but sadly, the only reason our Congress folks are slowly moving to do their oversight duty is because they're feeling consistent heat from their constituents to do so!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
