Fed's Fisher Sees U.S. Debt 'Tipping Point': "If We Continue On Our Current Path The U.S. Will Become Insolvent"

"If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent. The question is when," Fisher said in a speech at the University of Frankfurt.

Fisher, seen by economists as one of the most hawkish policymakers within the Fed, said that although debt-cutting measures would be painful, he expected the U.S. to take the necessary actions.

Destroy the host nation, transfer the wealth into a few "chosen" hands and leave the country destroyed from within. Mission accomplished.
