New York (CNNMoney) - The U.S. Senate has confirmed Janet Yellen to serve as the next chair of the Federal Reserve, after Ben Bernanke finishes his second term at the end of the month.
Senators voted 56 to 26 in her favor, with many missing the vote because of inclement weather. Several Republicans broke party ranks in support of Yellen.
Hopefully she will have some good ideas to improve the economy, which Obamma says is better. Then why does Obamma want to extend unemployment ???? Hurry blame Bush !!!! LOL Good luck to Ms/Mrs Yellon.
She is going to be good...
This is a smart appointment that will benefit the nation.
I am glad that there was no need to over come a filibuster.
I'm going to miss Ben Bernanke. Every time he would speak I would think of The Architect on "The Matrix".
Thank you Reid. While it might and will come back to bite some in the behind this is what a majority really is!
