Anyone voting for Yellen is a Keynesian and therefore an “old” Republican. Anyone voting against her is a “new” Republican like Senators Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. We will be able to identify clearly the players on each team.
Why does any of this matter to the average American?
It matters because today’s Fed, whether led by a Republican such as Bernanke or a Democrat such as Yellen, is wrecking the economy, spoiling any chance for a sustainable recovery, and thereby depriving our children of an economic future.
