Really, Sen. Schumer - Get to work?

Posted: July 20, 2012 - 4:12pm

On Tuesday Fed (Federal Reserve) Chairman Ben Bernanke testified before the Senate Banking Committee. When Sen. Charles Schumer D-N.Y. was finished questioning Mr. Bernanke his parting comment was “get to work.”

This from a member of the Senate whose party is in control, hasn’t passed a budget in three years.

This same Senate has a farm bill before it which will guarantee farmers 90 percent for any crop failures.

We’ve already bailed out the auto manufacturers and the banks, why not just guarantee prosperity for everyone? Golden parachute anyone?

And Mr. Schumer has the gall to tell Mr. Bernanke to get to work. Yikes.
