As the Plain Truth reported back in 20009, The FED's raising interest rates destroyed the US economy in 2008, NOT the housing crisis. The housing crisis was caused by the FED! For almost the entire Bush years, the pro-Democrat, Deep State, Federal Reserve kept increasing interest rates to cause the Great Depression, ignorer to get a Democrat elected-and it worked. Notice the lowered the interest rates to ZERO under Obama for 8 years! Now under Trump, they have raised them 3 times! END THE FED- they are the enemy of the American worker and middle class.
