    What if the Fed starts raising interest rates next year, but the realization that it would kill the housing recovery moves them to set a fixed mortgage interest rate – let’s say at 4.5% just for fun.

    The inscription above the entrance to the Capitol building (which the unwashed masses are no longer allowed to enter anyways) should be changed to read:

    “Do what we say, not we do” xoxo Congress

    Sorry, Congress didn’t budget for enough letters on the capital inscription. Should have read

    “Do what we say, not what we do” … xoxo Congress

    …but yet there is enough money laying around to launch shuttles and new rockets that could take us back to the moon for more rocks – or even go to Mars!….. maybe they could throw all the toxic CDS, CMBS, etc… onboard one of those.

    Having lived inside the beltway a great deal of my life as a neighbor to these politicians, I’m thrilled and hope something finally comes from this.

    One word in summary: Arrogance

    > moves them to set a fixed mortgage interest rate

    Bman, I am not sure if you are serious but some version of this is entirely possible IMO. People mention unemployment but rarely talk about who is unemployed. My point is, the employed may have sufficient spending power to cause inflation on many goods. So the Fed may try to get itself more than one lever.
