Pivot To Jobs? Sack Bernanke!
So the Senate apparently wants to 'pivot to jobs' in the wake of the debacle in MA. If they actually want to do something that'll work, there's an available solution: deny Ben Bernanke confirmation, and replace him with somebody who'll implement the Gagnon plan of massive quantitative easing. Maybe Joe Gagnon. Financial markets might freak out, but what matters isn't the S&P this week. It's all about unemployment numbers in late October.
