Sewell fucking Chan never sleeps and brought me the most depressing news I've gotten since I heard Obama wanted to send Janet to the Board.
The Senate on Wednesday night confirmed Janet L. Yellen as vice chairwoman of the Federal Reserve and Sarah Bloom Raskin as a Fed governor, adding two officials to the Fed’s board as it faces a decision on whether to take new steps to stimulate the economy.DAMNIT JANET! I can't believe Congress actually got around to it first and second can't believe it's actually happening.
Ms. Yellen, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and Ms. Raskin, Maryland’s commissioner of financial regulation, were confirmed unanimously. President Obama nominated them in April.
