Bernanke Nomination on Hold

I just received the following message from a Congressional source:

Bunning, Sanders, and DeMint have holds on Bernanke, and Bernanke made some interesting comments on fiscal policy. DeMint tweeted that he will hold the nomination until there’s a vote to audit the Fed.

In non-hearing news, Chairman Frank says that he doesn’t think the Fed audit provision will change on the floor, which means it is likely to pass the full House next week.

DeMint tweets: “I will oppose Bernanke and hold his nomination until we get a vote to audit the Fed.”

-- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over
