This looks like a prediction,that more bad news is expected,so they prefer to keep the rate cuts,for the next big debacle.
There are not to many rate cuts,they can still do,when the rate is 2%,so you have to preserve the medicine for real and big emergencies.

UNFORTUNATELY, the big thinkers and planners Greenspan and Bernanke have hurt this economy deeply by never figuring out what was coming.
The first is famous for twisted sentences and confusing phrases and the second one froze the interst rate fourteen times in a row and decided too late that he had been wrong.
