I agree with you Debra.Debra Borchardt: I think with this pressure on them they understand that people want this thing done. Jim: Well I'm a huge fan, although sometimes I feel alone, of Ben Bernanke. And Ben Bernanke says, "Listen, this is terrible for the economy." He knows so much. He knows so much more than the rest of us. He certainly knows more than me. I'm going with his view. Debra Borchardt: Got to do something? Jim: Yeah. Debra Borchardt: Okay. Thanks Jim. --Written by Debra Borchardt in New York.
