Federal Reserve is a private for profit banking cartel.
They put their money to work just like any other business person.
The difference is key: They are able to print their money out of thin air!

And the Democrats accuse Republicans of siding with the rich, even though the Democrats have been in control for much of the last 50 years and set up a lot of the policies with loopholes they now complain about. Why didn't they make changes when they had the chance if they were so opposed to policies favoring the rich? Because they receive kickbacks and benefits that make themselves rich at the taxpayers' expense!
