Breitbart: Rand Paul's Goal...


Rand Paul's Goal in Holding Up Yellen's Appointment to Fed

Senator Rand Paul woke up the Washington political scene on October 25th by leaking that he intends to place a "Senatorial hold" on the upcoming Presidential nomination of Janet Yellen to be the next Chairperson of the U.S. Federal Reserve, unless Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid allows his “Audit the Fed” bill to go to a Senate floor vote.

Rand Paul, under the Standing Rules of the United States Senate, has the right to prevent a motion for the nomination of Janet Yellen from reaching a vote on the Senate floor. Majority Leader Harry Reid has used the same Senate rules to prevent a vote on Paul’s “Audit the Fed” bill, introduced with 25 bipartisan sponsors in February 2013.

By forcing Harry Reid and his Senate allies who secretly oppose “Audit the Fed” to go on record with a very unpopular roll call vote, Senator Paul is demonstrating his principled leadership and the building of a powerful new coalition of American voters.
