Bernanke Warns Congress To Minimize Budget Deficits

April 16, 2010 by  

Bernanke warns Congress to minimize budget deficits Testifying before Congress’ Joint Economic Committee, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said on April 14 that he is cautiously optimistic that the moderate economic recovery will continue, although the job market may sputter in the coming months.

Bernanke also urged lawmakers to recommend further budget cuts to help minimize the record federal deficit and help improve the nation’s long-term economic health, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

"Addressing the country’s fiscal problems will require difficult choices, but postponing them will only make them more difficult," he warned the committee.

The Fed chairman pointed to several signs of economic improvement, including the 1.6 percent increase in retail sales in March and the minimal inflation boost during that time. Bernanke also reiterated his pledge to keep interest rates low for an "extended period" to support the recovery.

During the meeting, Bernanke admitted to some mistakes regarding the Fed’s unclear role concerning consumer protection, The Economic Times reports.

"I can understand why some advocates would want to have a purely independent agency," he said. "While we have acknowledged being late on these issues, I do believe we should receive some credit forr a much better performance in recent years."

    Has America ever had a Fed head who really cared about America? I ask because if it’s happened, it’s news to me. Frankly, having a private corporation control a country’s money supply makes as much sense as letting a professional criminal live in your house and have ready access to your bank accounts.
    There are so many who don’t understand the significance of letting the Fed do what it does [devalue the dollar] that it’s almost like trying to teach a new language to someone who refuses to speak any language.
    In the case of the Fed, we never needed it. It violates the spirit of the Constitution. The Founding Fathers knew what would happen if we allowed central banks to exist. Add the reliance on ‘public education,’ and you get a nation full of ignorant people who don’t know much about freedom, and aren’t inclined to learn.
    A central bank has a strictly negative influence in any country. The Fed is worse than a ticking time bomb, and its short fuse has been burning slowly ever since its creation. Two great Americans who understood what a central bank could do to a nation were Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson.
    If we could talk to either Jackson or Jefferson, they would be horrifid to learn that future generations could be so stupid and so indifferent to a domestic form of SLAVERY.

  • Yes we did

    8 years of republicans took this country down…

    • JC

      Small minded observation. Actually almost 100 years of unelected, unnacountable, privately owned central banking and fiat currency took this country down. And now with His Hopiness…well, it’s almost over.

    • s c

      You forgot rule#1, YesIAmAnObummerParrot. Every time you parrot back the Bush routine, you have to include 12 years of FDR, 8 years of Bubba Clinton, Teddy Roosevelt, Airhead Wilson and Peanuts Carter. That’s a seriously long line of LOSERS.
      Your useful idiot trainers didn’t teach you very well. Polly wanna cracker? Don’t forget to find your way back to the nearest Obummer pet shop.

  • Raggs

    Ber-spanky is an obama lover he will do anything to please his master.

    • s c

      Raggs, if we had politicians who weren’t afraid to tell us the truth, odds are that Obummer works for Bernanke. Livingston knows EXACTLY what I mean.
      What we see is a stage production, designed to keep people stupid and silent. Those who think the Fed is good for America are some of the same MORONS who ranted about the ‘establishment’ back in the ’60s. They never understood who was running things, and they still don’t get it.
      Show me a president who dares to stand up to the Fed, and I’ll show you a president who is living on borrowed time. If you think I am stretching the truth, it’s because you don’t know who pulls the Fed’s strings.
      Trust the Fed, and you’ll get ripped a new one. See it for what it is, and you have a chance to survive.

      • Raggs

        This is true… we all know they sleep in the same bed of slavery for the dumb-witted…

  • Norm

    If MCCain had his way we’d be bomb bomb bombing Iran as we speak. Bombs cause long wars and cost tax payer dollars and worse American lives.
    America has been in more wars in the last 50 years than any other nation on earth. Why is that?

    • s c

      Normy, you did it again. Obummer’s lame magic tricks keep you entertained, but he’s just making you focus on one hand while the other keeps you wowed. Obummer demands that you see him as a problem-solver. Who told you that Obummer brought the troops home from Irag/Afghanistan? THAT might qualify as an accomplishment.
      At the moment, Obummer is moving our military out of Iraq [but NOT back to America]. He’s moving them to Afghanistan. That makes Obummer a major Bush imitator. If Bush was so bad, then WHY is Obummer continuing and expanding a Bush policy? In the real world, that means you’re far beyond confused, Normy.
      Obummer is NOT worthy of praise or adoration. He’s using parlor tricks. Like the Wizard of Oz, Obummer shows people what he wants them to see. Obummer is a fakir. He’s a charlatan. He’s a three-card Monte con artist.
      Open that curtain, and take a hard look at your ‘wizard.’ Are you sure Bush is no longer in the White House? When it comes to Iraq and Afghanistan, is there any difference between Obummer and Bush?
      Next, you’ll want us to believe Obummer is Christ-like, and can do ‘anything.’ Even your incompetent, sold-out, over-priced media whores can’t make anyone believe that.
      This is your wake up call, guy. Wakey, wakey.

    • JC

      Because there’s money and imperialistic control in it. It’s “The American Way” and it has got to stop. Time to get back to the Constitution.

  • Che King

    You rejected Republicans seem bitter and unhappy…. I don’t believe the world you are looking for is possible .. It must be horrible to always feel like the victim… Some of you seem very paranoid and delusional and filled with doom.. I’m sorry for you.

    • s c

      Welcome to the monkey barrel, CK. As I recall, it is the ultraleft side of the aisle that specializes in promoting social engineering via victimology. Normally, ultraliberal progressives count on dead voters, ethnic groups that have been sold multiple bills of goods, union groups that refuse to believe their Bolshevik roots, and networks of useful idiots who will believe anything they are told (in the name of togetherness and group ‘superiority’).
      If you are childish to believe that some will live in interesting times the while the (supposedly) pre-chosen ‘elite’ are untouched, you weren’t taught everything you need to know.
      When the layers of an onion are peeled back, they can’t be put back – no matter what you’ve been told. Savor the flavor. It never lasts. Be very careful what you wish for. As the rest of the saying goes, you just might get it.
      ‘Et tu’ applied 2,000 years ago. It still applies.
      Think of it as cosmic ‘karma.’

      • Jeep

        wow SC that was easily one of the best replies I have ever had the pleasure to read!

        so, Che King take that, you…uuhhh…you know…ummm…just read the post from SC! :)

    • JC

      And so speaks a communist. I’m not unhappy at all. In fact I’m looking forward to some great changes that will bring back the real American Way. Do us a favor “Che”…make sure you’re waving you’re Obama button when the conservatives come out to play.

  • Raggs

    OH…Che chang chu….
    You have been hit….
    The magical indoctrination dust has hit it’s mark upon you..
    Your non-dimensional BS falls flat on your ( empty )head..
    You must have placed it ( your head ) up a hole… maybe down a hole ?

  • C J Madden

    Now that Obama’s “healthcare” is a “law,” Bernanke now says that what the Republicans said all along is correct–the bill is too costly to be effective. There is no provision in the US Constitution that sets up a Federal Reserve Bank and, therefore, has no Constitutional protections. We had a nation without it and did very well so it’s time to put the Federal Reserve out to pasture as a failed agency.

      Now throw Cap and Trade and all the other goodies we’re on the hook for into the mix and we might see that our economy is in sky dive mode straight into the toilet.

        Sorry, should have been “CJ”

        JC, there’s no doubt about it. Obummer “cares” so much for America that he’ll stop at NOTHING to increase the budget to make room for all of those extra agencies.
        Can you FEEL the “love,” America? Obummer is making LBJ’s attempts to socially engineer us to death look like a family picnic. Obummer might have to float a loan from everybody’s pal – George Soros – to be able to make it work.
        It never stops, does it? Obummer finds more ways to prove that he loves us. He loves us “to pieces,” doesn’t he?

          It’s so ridiculously stupid I can’t believe we’re letting them get away with it…so far anyway.

    The Biblical “Jacob’s trouble” is soon coming, probably by the middle of September and this guy(Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke)also did not have “only” a small part in it! Watch!

    don’t think you have to wait until sept. it started in november 2008

  • Stephen Russell

    To boost Economy 101 for leftists:
    Dump Tax rates
    Revamp or scrap IRS
    adopt Flat Tax so ALL pay.
    CUT regulations alone.
    CUT spending.
    Cut waste- see

    stephen r

    you forgot one main thing, dump congress and barry

    Stephen r, you have to go back to bacic math for liberal socialist. If they manage to abscond with them taxpayers money, even 5 dimes, and then tell them you want 7 coins, they will probably tell you it is taking all of their money and if they get any given to them to, it will be gone. They never understand addition and subtraction. All democrat socialists want you, to give up your money for their social engineering program shortfalls or shortages. But don’t touch their government job or healthcare, or my rocking chair money from you, the taxpayers. Chew Chings must be some more of the Asian illegal imports, most all are dem voters in Acorn ilk, that only know how to bootleg fake products. They were raised as communists, socialists, and the only difference is one group is a Maoist and Oidoit is a muslim. Communism is their high point in life, as an advisor of programs. Economy 101 is too hard for and too advanced for 5th grade duff asses fetching up.

    I would ask Bob Livingston – to resource some Articles that speak to the “falseness” of the Left/Right Paradigm.
    ON THIS, there can be no mistake. Over the last 50 years, most of the financial damage has occurred whenever Democrats are in power. Further proof of this is in the fact that of the three recent Presidents to offer TAX CUTS, two of them were Repubicans. The other being John F Kenndy (and we know what happened to him). Reagan & Bush 2 are the Republicans.

    I would also ask – that he try and find any articles out there that demonstrate a refusal by Communities to allow Libertarian Candidates as an option for our votes. I understand there has to be a certain percentage of any Community interest (signatures, etc) that would then permit a Libertarian Candidate to be listed. Are we seeing efforts to denounce this at the grassroots level?

    THE BIGGEST ISSUE OVERALL – is for everyone (like it or not) to gain a real foothold on the knowledge base that speaks to the real cause of our current situation – financial debt and how it was created and for what reasonings(?)

    Hamiltonian-ism states: Debt is good, as it helps to create Credit.
    [This is actually a Rothschild World Central Bank theorem, for one reason lony – it aids in the collection of power over others, without any real force, other than monetary)

    Jeffersonian-ism states: No Government should ever borrow any more than they need for the immediate issue (our being attacked by an outside source, nature-causeed catastrophy, like sunspots warming to the point of drought or lack thereof as we saw in the Dark Ages where it became too cold to grow drops at all). What’s more, Jefferson’s Philosophy demands that any Debt creation affect only the immediate Generation and not be carried onto the Next Generation if at all possible. This is the exact opposite of Hamiltonian-ism, as it avoids the “free handout carpetbagger” approach to Society as a whole. It works to prevent it. It also espouses the elimination of Government Debt whenever possible AT ALL TIMES.

    In our current Lifetime – none of our Presidents (the last four especially) have had any attitude other than the Hamiltonian approach and the two fold reasoning is (as we know) 1)Debt creates Credit… this is so bogus, seriously; 2)A Country’s Government should not need to care about what their Citizen’s think – a Country should be run from the top down, like a Monarcy or a Dictatorship.

    So – while many on here waste the time of others – they are “really” just wasting their on time that much more.

    Here’s a great way to view all of this – since you probably don’t have a secreted position in the Groups who do have current power (without our votes, like it or not) – is this:

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE a Net Worth of at least $10billion in assets and property and it is being efforted to grow on a constant basis (not just a set amount)…. THEN YOU ARE EVERYONE ELSE.

    Better learn to gain agrasp on this real logic – because, at this point in time – IT’s THE TRUTH

    Hamiltonian-ism is the death of Freedom in this Country and any Country at any other place on the Planet. It is the slavery of the masses, by design.

    • Anthony

      Post Note – I am not ignoring the damage that’s been done to civil liberties by the Bush Adminsitrations, either. My comment about “financial damage”, however, is closer to the truth than many can grasp… until they learn what Hamiltonian-ism really is.
