    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

If Americans want to know why unemployment figures are so high, they need look no further than these cowardly and despicable republican senators. Compassionate democrats have been trying desperately to help the poor during these tough times with fiscal stimulus programs and by investing in education and healthcare, but heartless conservatives won't even let Obama pass a common-sense jobs bill which would get this country working again. My heart goes out to all those affected by the ideas of spoiled brat libertarians, which have been spread by anarchist nerds and redneck doomers and have somehow managed to permeate the senate. I can only hope this country wakes up to the shocking implications of libertarian bigotry before it becomes a reality.

Your irrelevant facts have no bearing on MDB's programming/ideology.  Now that I think about it, I suspect we should be honored to be in the presence of one of the few remaining believers in the two party "dichotomy"!

And here I thought spending bills had to originate in the house.  That must be one of the numerous passages redacted in that document they're supposed to give an oath to pretend to abide by....

You are correct, they do...at least until recently.

There are about 100 bills sitting on Reids desk right now that went through the proper channels...he's afraid to bring any of them before the senate as some may pass and have to be vetoed publicly by Barry.

He's Obama's little bitch ;-)

“Their strategy is to suffocate the economy for the sake of what they
think will be a political victory,” Jim Messina,

The best rebuttal:

"We have tried spending money.  We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work.  And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong ...somebody else can have my job.  I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job.  I want to see people get enough to eat.  We have never made good on our promises. ...I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. ...And an enormous debt to boot."  -- Henry Morgenthau ( U.S. Secretary of Treasury 1937)

MillionDollarBonus_'s spiel is the equivalent of reading turd leaves. First he sits on the toliet, a bunch of shit spews out of his mouth, he then rises, faces the toliet and then proceeds to write down the day's Democratic talking points to be posted on ZH later in the evening.

Translation: He's so full of shit, he makes a sewage treatment plant smell like a bed of roses.

Hey MDB, If you think the dems here are compassionate I suggest you try on some compassion from their heroes, like Mao, Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot. Do yourself a favor and move to Cuba or Venezuala, compassionate lot down there, sure you'll fit right in.

What's funniest is how so many people writing responses to MDB simply don't get his sarcasm. As of this writing he's got 41 red ticks. The joke went completely and utterly over the heads of forty-one people here. Astounding.

As of now, the Fed and treasury can do no wrong. They can openly monetize debt, become the largest holder of treasuries, get downgraded, lie about inflation, you name it, the world still buys bonds. But when sentiment shifts, the Fed or the treasury can do no right. They can try and cut spending and raise rates but nothing will stop the capital flight. NOTHING.
