    "all it has done is decrease the number of uninsured in this country"

    LOL

    I'm self employed, so I was on my wife's insurance until her company dropped it and told everyone to go on Obamacare. I have a torn rotator cuff and refuse to get it treated because what I would have to pay is insane. If I still had the old plan I'd be brand new. So...that's not all it's done...It's made everyone else buy a ridiculously expensive catastrophic plan. That's all that has happened.

    first you have to burn it down. There is no fixing this, and there are way too many people vested in it to let it burn.

    The banks have been doing just fine issuing ridiculous interest rates on credit cards, student loans and auto loans this whole time.

    Score one for the savers my A$$

    It took Wells Fargo & Co. WFC, +1.68% just 12 minutes to pass the Federal Reserve's interest rate hike on to its customers, as it became the first major bank to raised its prime rate. The Fed said at 2 p.m. ET that it was raising its fed-funds target rate by a quarter percentage point to a range of 0.25% to 0.5%; Wells Fargo said at 2:12 p.m that it was raising its prime rate to 3.50% from 3.25%, effective Thursday. The bank didn't not announce any change to its rates on deposits, which are up to 0.06% on savings accounts, according to its website.

    Bret with all due respect that ship sailed a long long time ago. I mean I am all for it if it helps cut out a lot of the rot and fraud in the system. But any accountant that takes a look at our system and the enormity of the debt necessary to sustain it will quickly pass on the chance to tell people everywhere that much of what they think "is owed" to them needs to be completely overhauled. Better and easier to just shove it all under the rug and lurch from crisis to crisis and extend and pretend.

    “Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans."

    I have no idea what politics has to do with the fed. People need to watch Inside Job or something and realize that both parties preside over this stuff.

    Don't overthink this. If you have military bases in every country you can stuff your currency down everyone's throat and issue as much debt as you need to knowing everyone else is clamoring for as close a tether to yours as they can get.

    It's all good.
