Obama Care-Economy Can’t Survive It-Rick Ackerman
By Greg Hunter
6 MAY 2013
Trader and forecaster Rick Ackerman says, “As far as the Fed getting off the easing regimen, it’s not possible . . . You’d kill the system right now. There’s no way out, and although we put off the day of reckoning, it can’t be put off indefinitely.” Obama Care is one of the biggest headwinds facing the economy. Ackerman says, “January 1st, everybody is going to get socked with at least a 30% increase in their insurance premiums . . . Obama Care is the worst bill ever . . . I don’t see how the economy can survive it.” Ackerman does not believe gold prices will skyrocket but contends, “One thing I have always been absolutely confident about is that gold, relative to any other asset you can think of, will hold its purchasing power.” Ackerman fears confiscation of bank deposits and says, “All depositors everywhere should be scared for their money. Cypress should have spooked the whole world, and it did! I think it makes the likelihood of some sort of black swan event even greater.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Rick Ackerman of RickAckerman.com.
