Government dumping on average citizens

News item: The Federal Reserve states it will continue to buy treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities at a clip of $85 billion a month.

News item: Congress is deciding on how much money to cut from the farm bill portion of food stamps, which now stands at $85 billion a year.

What’s wrong with this picture? The Feds (and Congress) will bend over backward to pacify the Wall Street barons, while they easily dump on the average person. What a government.
