"Too Big Too Fail, Too Small Too Save"; Claim Small Business Owners


Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke spoke in a forum Sunday. Bernanke defended his controversial actions, saying they helped fend off a "Second Great Depression." Citizens expressed concern over the big bailouts for big businesses.

A small business owner at the forum expressed his anger over the government's actions of bailing out big firms while letting small businesses fail. When confronted, Bernanke would explain he had "limited options" and stressed a "regulatory overhaul."

One topic that got a "forceful tone" from the audience was the Fed's independence. Bernanke insisted that an audit of the Federal Reserve by the Government Accountability Office is "misunderstood by the public."

to, two, too?
Sorry - I'm in a bad mood.

Seriously though, they're right - if you don't let big companies fail (too), how will anything change.

  @ jamesmc  
I thought the same thing about the 'too' mistake. The thing is, I wouldn't have commented on it usually but I'm pretty sure sour4d20 has been giving out bad ratings to people for far less noticable things (in some cases there didn't really even appear to be any problem with the summary).

Apologies if I'm thinking of someone else.

  Let's just give  
Ben Bernanke a rap name -- say, 'Banky B' -- and call this "2 Big 2 Fail, 2 Small 2 Save." Dropping soon.

If Ben Bernanke was Tupac Shakur, the audit would be Notorious B.I.G.

i tried to tell you guys you were too excited over that whole hr1207 or whatever it was...

Big Ben says you misunderstand the audit. Us underlings are too stupid to really understand what is actually going on, lets not question them...

are very few small businesses remaining here!

He has been fending off ideas to audit the fed for sometime now.

Does any have any sources that explain what might be some possible out comes?
(i am hoping for sources that are not shortnews blackslisted or RON PAUL or Federal Reserve, i'm hoping for independent

Actually, yes in alaska we use "too" for huge or extremely large situations
  by: sour4d20     07/28/2009 09:38 PM     
Are you serious? Must be the new grammar they taught under Palin.
