Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday warned he won’t be able to save the economy if Congress takes the country over a “fiscal cliff."Yeah. Four years after the financial crisis is obviously waaaaay too soon to stop running Greece-sized deficits. Party on, Boehner!
The Fed chairman continued to sound the alarm about the "fiscal cliff" the nation is facing at the end of the year, when a slew of policy changes are set to take effect that could drain billions of dollars from the economy.
