They were buying Treasuries and suing the interest tp pay. It was supposed to  be just for SS and nothing else. Well LBJ starting using the funds for Medicare and the Congress let him do it. So now SS is in the hole because all the Congresses kept shoving aside or “kicking the can down the road. That is how inflation got started and forced President Nixon to go off the Gold standard.

WE should go back to 19689 and reduce all their pensions down to 10% of their salary and sue for payments all the way to 2016. What a bundle.  Their mantra for big pay has been; “we when represent 300 million p…

What does the Fed actually do?

It runs the interbank payments system. It lends the commercial banks and LFIs reserves on demand at interest. It does not lend the government $US to spend. It cannot spend into the private sector. It cannot increase the 'money supply' whatever that is. It can only set interest rates in complian…
