Why is Mr. Powell Still the Head of the Federal Reserve?

He has destroyed the middle class, and should be terminated immediately.

This is from June of 2021. Here is the title.

Fed’s Powell Plays Down Inflation Threat

Sees shortages fading over time, bringing inflation closer to the Fed’s 2% long-run target

In it Chairman Powell says the Federal Reserve expects inflation to be 3.4% year-over-year in the 4th Quarter of 2021…only a few months later. “Fed officials last week increased their median forecast for inflation this year. They project consumer prices in the fourth quarter of 2021 will rise 3.4% from a year before.”

The Actual number was 6.68%. In the first quarter of 2022 it was 8%. In the second quarter of 2022 it was 8.63%.

Off by a factor of 2. Destroying the middle-class. And the Fed is/was wrong by so very much it is embarrassing. But they never apologize. And the press treats the Fed. like royalty. And that is embarrassing.

And if I am President, this will never happen again.
