Congress is clueless in that it substituted in the place of honest and Constitutional money a Central Bank monster that was doomed to eventual failure from the onset. The monster is now far more powerful that the government that instituted it.
The central bank monster is so entrenched that it will ultimately do anything to maintain its place of supreme power. That includes applying negative or positive interest rates, robbing pension accounts, creating bank holidays (in which confiscation of savings is the end game, absconding of some to all bank stored wealth (savings) at first at or above the banking systems "guaranteed" savings limit, but later at any limit), manipulating markets, controlling prices, banning and then confiscating assets such as gold and silver, dominating governments, bringing national leaders to their knees, ignoring the mandates/vote of the public, etc...
Greece has experienced pretty much all of this sans (to my knowledge) the banning/confiscation of gold and silver. The rest of the world will also. It's only a matter of time.
