Advice for Obama: Confront, Then Compromise

$3.3 trillion bailout for the banks

During the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve, using quantitative easing (printing money), loaned $3.3 trillion to bail out the banks.

It is the wages of ordinary citizens that support 70 percent of the economy. “ Fed reveal loans under court order,” Bloomberg news by Craig Torres, April 1,2011.
