Corker Wants Fed to Worry About Protecting Wealth, Not Creating Jobs

Sen. Bob Corker has come out against Janet Yellen as Fed chief, showing yet again that he's a tool for big banks, because she thinks unemployment and the sluggish economy are bigger problems than the threat of inflation. Our senator told CNBC:

I am more of an eat-your-vegetables' kind of guy. I'm not a chocolate-pie kind of guy, and that's where we've been with the Fed for a long, long time.

Translation: I'm rich and so are all my friends and the bankers who pay for my political campaigns, so I'm for fighting to protect their wealth rather than doing something to help the schlubs back home find jobs.
