McCain To Oppose Janet Yellen For Fed Chair

AP

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told reporters on Tuesday he’ll oppose Janet Yellen for Fed chair.

Why?

“Because of what’s happening to the economy,” he said. “She wants to continue [Ben] Bernanke’s policies. My state’s still in a recession. Nearly half the homes in my states are still underwater, while Wall Street has gotten very, very wealthy.”
