Wow!  Why don't we have the Fed Reserve shore up health care...jeez.  

I can just imagine these phone call.  

Foreign Central Bank: US Fed Reserve can you loan me a 1/2 trillion?  

US Fed Reserve: Sure, let me get out my checkbook and write you a check...there you go.  Hey, someday can you pay us back?

Foreign Central Bank: Sure just let me know I got my checkbook right here.  But you know you can always write more checks yourselves... right?

US Fed Reserve:  Oh yeah, there are lots of checks in here.  You guys are so smart.  Ok then, don't worry about paying us back.  PHONE CALL ENDS

Bernanke: Guys, you need to start writing the check #'s and amounts in the register I can't make heads or tails of this.
