Al Hunt on Perry's Bernanke Comments, Buffett's Tax Call
Aug. 16, 2011
Aug. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Al Hunt, executive editor at Bloomberg News, talks about Texas Governor Rick Perry's comments on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke.
Perry, finishing his first full day of campaigning for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination in Iowa, said it would be "almost treacherous -- or treasonous" for Bernanke to increase stimulus spending before the 2012 election. Hunt, speaking on Bloomberg Television's "InBusiness With Margaret Brennan," also discusses Billionaire Warren Buffett's call to Congress to raise taxes on the nation's wealthiest individuals to help cut the U.S. budget deficit.
