Jeff Lacker's down vote today means he's dissented (12 times) from FOMC decisions more often than he's joined the majority (11). He's also on track to dissent at every FOMC meeting this year, a record matched by Thomas Hoenig in 2010. His actions may earn him the ire of his colleagues, but the thumbs-up from those uncomfortable with overwhelming consensus.

  • Thank you Mr. Lacker, your concern for the American Working Man / Woman is a breath of fresh air among these progressive / quasi socialist fools!
    The American worker deserves and demands a STRONG DOLLAR policy and when Bubble Blowin Ben and his QE stun gun are thrown out on their ear by the next President Of The United States, Mitt Romney, things will change for the better!
    The power of your conviction is duly noted and a grateful Republic thanks you.
