Fed nominee Peter Diamond's blunt remarks against extending tax cuts for wealthier Americans could make it more difficult for him to obtain Senate approval. It's unusual for a Fed nominee to speak about fiscal policy, and his belief that "it would not be good policy to extend the tax cut for the highest earners" likely will irritate Republicans.

    Why would millionaire Senators with their multimillionaire contributors and friends ever approve anyone who put sound policy decisions before the Senators' personal well being.

     

    Did you think they became Senators to serve the country?
