STRASBOURG, France--European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said Monday that large-scale purchases of public and private debt fall "squarely" within the ECB's mandate to keep inflation low and stable.
Mr. Draghi's remarks, at a hearing at a newly formed European parliament that met in Strasbourg, France, are the latest indication that the ECB is open to additional aggressive stimulus measure if they are needed to keep inflation from staying too low for too long.
"QE falls squarely in our mandate," Mr. Draghi told parliamentarians.

Obama gets yet another free pass. Apparently he is taking the repeal of "don't ask don't tell" to a new level of "ask people if they are gay if they are for equal rights of gay people". I wish the cashier had answered "No, I'm not gay. But it sure would make things a whole lot easier the way you keep us bent over". fist bump that.
Obama faced some criticism for cutting the long line at Franklin Barbecue. However, when he arrived at the front, he tried to treat some of the people he bypassed to their meals. According to the White House press pool report Obama "produced a wad of 20s for an order that came to exceed $300" Obama then asked an aide if his credit card was good. When he confirmed his card would work, Obama put the hefty barbecue tab on his "JPMorgan card."
Webb told the Chronicle he believed the anger over Obama's line-cutting was misplaced and argued security concerns necessitated the move.
"Logistically, that's a really lazy complaint. I don't think you can safely have a world leader hanging around in a line," explained Webb.
However, Webb said there was at least one politician he'd be upset to see in the line at Franklin – Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
"If Rick Perry would've walked in, I would have lost my job. I would've taken that old queen to town," Webb said
Daniel Webb, a comedian and sometime drag queen based in Austin, Texas, got a hearty laugh out of President Barack Obama with a joke about his sex life.
According to the Austin Chronicle, the exchange occurred after the president asked Webb if he was gay while visiting a restaurant Thursday. When Obama went up to pay at Austin's famous Franklin Barbecue, the Chronicle reported Webb, who was working the cash register, "threw his hand down and slapped the counter dramatically."
"Equal rights for gay people!" Webb declared.
"Are you gay?" asked Obama.
"Only when I have sex," Webb quipped.
Webb told the Chronicle the joke got Obama to laugh. He said the president told him to "bump me." The pair subsequently exchanged a fist bump that was captured on camera.

-- President Barack Obama took credit on Wednesday for the U.S. economic rebound after the financial crisis of 2008. "Thanks to the hard work of you - and some actually smart policies by us, we have come further and recovered faster than almost any other advanced country on Earth," Obama said in a campaign-style speech in Denver. Obama trumpeted an agenda of "economic patriotism," including tax breaks to help with childcare or college costs and infrastructure spending. "Don't stack the deck in favor of those who've already succeeded," Obama said.
