Europe Enabling Dysfunction in Congress

It seems the only thing anyone can talk about on Wall Street is the Super Committee and the imminent deadline.

And as of Monday night, the Super Committee said it didn't reach an agreement - on anything!

According to Larry McDonald of Newedge and author of “A Colossal Failure Of Common Sense” Europe is a big piece of the problem.


Because of the woes in Europe there’s a flight to quality in the market and as a result yields on Treasurys are low.

”We can borrow money at cheap rates so there’s no urgency to get anything done,” he says. In other words lawmakers are able to kick the proverbial can down the road. And so they did.
