Here 'ya go:
Five minutes, roughly.
Let's recap Rusty's points, which I have repeatedly made since this crisis began, and if you look at the last two+ years of The Ticker, you'll see the same things being said:
By the way, if you're a "credentials guy", Rusty is a former Federal Reserve board member.
So folks, how much more of an authority do you need than a former Federal Reserve board member and the head of a significant regional bank?
Still think this is a partisan issue? We've had a Democrat President and a Republican Congress, a Republican President and a Republican Congress, a Republican President and a Democrat Congress and now a Democrat President and a Democrat Congress.
All possible combinations have been present during the genesis and unfolding of this mess and not one has stepped forward to put a stop to it.
Are we the people still going to sit on our butts, ten years after the fine folks who are "in charge" sell us down the river and we get the consequences, irrespective of whether we're Democrat or Republican?
What's that old Einstein definition of insanity again? Oh yeah:
Doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result.
