If you could help your friends make money, with no repercussions on you, would you? Well that is what the Chair of the Federal Reserve did by raising interest rates that benefit banks and bankers for doing nothing.

What a scam. Congress created the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) in 1913 and it is time for some changes. Simple ones, like if the FRB wants to raise interest rates it can only be done with 50 percent Congressional approval. Let the FRB make their case for increasing rates to Congress and the American citizens. We have never had “accountability” from the FRB, but we should get it from Congress. Even Trump sees no reason to raise interest rates. Do you?
