Parsing the Fed

The original Fed statement is here;

The WSJ Parses this statement with last month’s:

THE FED’S STATEMENTS reflect how the members of the central bank’s
Federal Open Market Committee perceive the economy. The slightest changes are
scrutinized for clues about where interest rates may be headed. The May 10
statement announced that the Fed was raising its key short-term interest rate by
one-quarter point to 5%, its 16th increase in a row and second under Bernanke –
which came as no surprise. More importantly, the statement opened the door for a
halt to rising rates for the first time in two years, while not ruling out more
increases. Below are the differences between the May statement and the March one.
