Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., told Fed Chair Janet Yellen on Wednesday she should hold off on raising rates next month as it would go against "God's plan."
"As I argued ... back in the summer, God's plan is not for things to go rise in the autumn. As a matter of fact, that's why we call it fall. Nor is it God's plan for things to rise in the winter through the snow," he said.
"God's plan is that things rise in the spring so, if you want to be good with the Almighty, you might want to delay until May," Sherman said.
