(WALL STREET JOURNAL) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday suggested he was against new measures by the Federal Reserve to stimulate the economy, though he appeared to be careful not to speak too forcefully against the central bank.
In a Fox News interview about a weaker-than-expected August jobs report, Mr. Romney said more easing measures by the Fed wouldn’t do much good.
“I don’t think there’s any action that they are going to take that will have an immediate impact on the economy,” Mr. Romney said of the Fed. “And frankly I think they’ve shot a lot of their monetary bullets and those bullets aren’t able to strike at a target that makes a real difference for the American worker today.”
