It's not the fed,
Remember, the Fed can't extend more credit if congress gridlocks. The Fed's scam relies that congress increases the debt ceiling so they are liable for that credit. In other words, credit issued by the Fed has the tax payer on the hook and that is how it has value!
Now how can the Fed continue if gridlock is down the road which then will force them to issue credit that congress isn't backing?
That is why bernanke left and the Fed waged a propaganda campaign to change gears that all is well and raising rates is fine.
Investors have realized global growth is actually a lie due to Fed QEs... So now the Fed is pressing the rumor mill button in panic to keep the remaining suckers in.... But if they don't quit, they'll become servants to the political economy they built.
Thus to protect banker interests, they need to reset the system and have government take blame and restart the scam.
Hence why they're mounting all this propaganda to ensure no economist or intellectual convinces the masses that banker/FED policy paved the road to this MOUNTING MISERY!!!
