More insight in the decision from Ben Bernanke himself -- over an hour.
Louis Hernandez junior open solutions CEO and author of saving the American dream joins us now Lewis what do you wanna hear Bernanke say that.
Well I'm not surprised that there's not any changes in the Fed fund -- what I wanna see him do is do things that'll help the economy to me it's most about jobs.
We lost eight point four million during the crisis.
We have the lowest employment rate of brown fifty point 6% in like three decades we have a long way to go -- that's why I'm not surprised that this could still concerned.
About the economic recovery and jobs.
But they've done everything that they can't even about more than two trillion dollars -- securities since 2009.
I mean they really are out of bullets and I say that.
It's not funny anymore they have nothing else that they can -- That's one of the challenge that he what they can do -- -- to -- it's a simple equation we're mostly consumer economy consumer confidence comes from jobs 65% of jobs created by small business.

Exactly I think that's what the Fed can do from their -- they've said -- we're doing everything we can.
We cannot have a 22% increase on making small businesses entrepreneurs like me do what they do best.
And then when they finally fight through that anyone alone it's nearly impossible we've got to change that.
