The Federal Reserve is making profits off of the troubled assets it purchased throughout 2009. Wouldn't it make sense to sell those assets back to the private market so the market could earn those profits (and hence increase the money supply without printing it)?

Additionally, there is a record amount of cash that corporations are hoarding as a result of the heavy government involvement in the economy. Wouldn't a government withdraw be a display of confidence and allow those companies to pour their money into the system, thus providing liquidity?
