When asked a difficult question , refuse to answer or lie - that's what bankers do - especially Fed Chairmen
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who usually votes with the Democrats, tackled Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and said he found it "unacceptable" that the central bank risked taxpayer money without detailing where the funds went.
"My question to you is, will you tell the American people to whom you lent $2.2 trillion of their dollars?" Sanders asked ..... referring to the size of the Fed's balance sheet.
When Sanders pressed on whether Bernanke would name the firms that borrowed from the Fed, the central bank chairman replied, "No."
Vermont Public Radio has the transcript of the exact exchange.
So now you know that Congress does NOT run the United States ... Uncle Ben's Lies will do instead.
