Why Does Kansas Elect Weathervanes as Politicians?: The View from the Roasterie XXV: November 4, 2013
Kansas Senator Pat Roberts on Janet Yellen in August:
[Janet Yellen] is very solid in how she approaches fiscal matters, the economy and the Fed, but you need a very strong leader and I'm not sure she has that capability. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/20/pat-roberts-janet-yellen-larry-summers_n_3784698.html
I am opposed to the President’s nomination of Janet Yellen to Chair the Federal Reserve Board of Governors…. Vice Chair Yellen will continue the destructive and inflationary policy of pouring billions of newly printed money every month into our economy, and artificially holding interest rates to near zero. This policy has been in place far too long. http://www.wibw.com/home/headlines/Senator-Roberts-To-Oppose-Yellen-Nomination-To-Chair-Federal-Reserve-227202031.html`
And bonus other Kansas Senator: Jerry Moran: Statement on Janet Yellen to Head Federal Reserve:
Given the profound influence of the Federal Reserve on the global economy, Vice Chair Yellen can expect a rigorous confirmation hearing before the Senate Banking Committee. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss her views of our current and future monetary policy.
Janet Yellen has been doing this for the Federal Reserve since 1994--for 20 years. What is it that Jerry Moran does not know by now?
