The Fed has decided "No Taper"
Of its purchase of fixed-income paper;
Without the renewal
Of stimulus fuel,
The economy's running on vapor.
Says Bernanke: "It's certainly bad enough
That employment amounts didn't add enough,
Given all of our pains
To stimulate gains;
Think of what it would be if we hadn't've."
"My economists tell me, statistically,
That it's hard to project optimistically,
When the Capitol sounds -
On political grounds -
Unlikely to stimulate fiscally."
"QE should never be cut down
With the risk of a government shutdown,
So you'll just have to wait
'Til growth may reflate
And the jobless rate's more than somewhat down."
