Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen on Tuesday addressed the Senate Banking Committee as part of her semi-annual address to Congress. TheStreet's Joe Deaux reports from Washington that the Fed head didn't provide any shocking updates to monetary policy, which is important for investors to know. Additionally she spoke about the huge drawbacks to long-term unemployment and why unemployment benefits are a critical safety net for them.
