Republican Senators Souring On Trumpís Federal Reserve Pick Stephen Moore
Huffpost ^ | 4/30/19 | Lydia O'Connor

Republican senators on Tuesday began vocalizing their opposition to Stephen Moore, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, amid widespread criticism that the economic commentator is unfit for the job.

Sens. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) both told reporters that they’re not confident in Moore, whom many economists have called out as a partisan pick more known for promoting conservative fiscal policy than for having any economic expertise.

Ernst, the first Republican to speak out, told CNN it was “very unlikely” that she’d support Moore’s nomination and that she didn’t believe he would be confirmed if he came up for an immediate vote. Several of her colleagues have privately expressed concerns about him, she added.

I soured on Republicans Senators after I figured out they have been preventing the citizens from stopping the illegal alien inundation.

He may be fine for the Federal Reserve, but I have a personal beef with him from back in the day when he was an uber open borders stooge, even after 9/11.

He has no center. He will be what he needs to be to get near power.

But not a single word from these ball-less RINOS at what GoNadsler and the House are doing to POTUS and his family and friends.

The guy has long been an open-borders, free-trade, Chamber of Commerce stooge. Turns out he’s been a political hack for years ... he just changes his policies depending on who is paying his bills.

“You have to be PC in DC or you are verboten.”

That’s pretty much it.

The DS (both Dems and Reps.) are fighting hard to preserve the Federal Reserve.. Trump knows what they’re up to. There was no reason to oppose Herman Cain, except that he was a firm believer in returning the U.S. to the gold standard as is Moore.
