“God’s plan is not for things to rise in autumn. As a matter of fact, that’s why we call it fall,” Mr. Sherman said during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with Ms. Yellen.
“Nor is it God’s plan for things to rise in the winter, through the snow,” he continued, forgetting, perhaps, that the Christmas rose and winter jasmine do quite well, snow notwithstanding.
Mr. Sherman then sought to bring Ms. Yellen closer to the divine.
“God’s plan is that things rise in the spring, and so if you want to be good with the Almighty, you might want to delay until May,” he said.
I'm sorry WTF?
As you may have gleaned Rep. Brad Sherman is a Democrat from California.
One would usually not expect a Democrat from California to invoke God in their arguments against raising the interest rate, but apparently Sherman did not get the memo.
I still would not place it in Ben Carson's Egyptian pyramid category, but it IS fairly nutty.
Just for fun watch the face of the guy right in front of Sherman around the 38 second mark as he starts talking about "God's plan." He looks to be desperately fighting to keep a straight face knowing full well that the C-Span cameras are pointed in his direction.
