Sen. Pat Toomey says he won't support Janet Yellen's nomination as Fed chair
Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is taking issue with the Federal Reserve.
A Senate panel on Thursday approved Janet Yellen's nomination to be the next chair of the Fed.
Yellen is expected to be confirmed by the full Senate next month, but Toomey, a Republican, said he won't vote for her, even though he thinks she has an impressive background and experience.
Toomey said Federal Reserve policy and practice are posing a grave risk to our economy, so to demonstrate his concerns, he will not support the nomination.
