If I remember correctly a Congressman suggested replacing the Fed with Congressional oversight.

When I heard that I was ROFL (rolling on floor laughing :) )

Who said that the Fed is committed to keeping rates low over the long-term? Bernanke has made it clear that if inflation kicks in or the economy starts heating up on it's own, he will possibly end quantitative easing early and/or raise interest rates as needed.

Everyone thinks Bernanke's such an idiot and they are so much more intelligent than him, but he could change course at any time. Personally, I think he's done a terrific job.

I won't call him an idiot but I also think inflation exists in many of the items we have to buy to maintain or improve our lifestyle and/or health. Fuel, the cost of healthcare and the cost of education continue to increase (some rapidly) despite the index showing little to no inflation. Outside of a housing, those expenses can really eat into your pocket.

Food, in my neck of the woods at least, seems to be down a little since the recession came along but companies have also cut serving sizes in packaged food but I don't that stuff anyway.

I also agree Ben Bernanke had done a great job. He could replace Jeff Bridges in the movie "Against All Odds" ...... (laughing)

re: inflation

We have NO energy policy - which should increase inflation. We have an oil spill accident and the result is a drilling moratorium. We have the Pickens plan for natgas (which, incidentally, would create jobs) and it is a no-go. Go figure....
