Here Is What Treasury Pick Janet Yellen Promises to Use the Department to Address
oe Biden has picked former Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen to head the Department of the Treasury for his administration. During her introduction on Tuesday, Yellen promised to use the Treasury Department to address racial inequality, “gender disparities,” and “the climate crisis.”
Yellen said during the announcement in Wilmington, Del. that the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ensuing lockdowns, made problems worse for less fortunate Americans.
“So many people struggling to put food on the table and pay bills and rent. It’s an American tragedy. And it’s essential that we move with urgency. Inaction will produce a self-reinforcing downturn causing yet more devastation. And we miss — we risk missing the obligation to address deeper structural problems. Inequality, stagnant wages, especially for workers who lack a college education. Communities that have seen industry disappear with no good jobs replacing lost ones,” Yellen said.
“Racial disparities in pay, job opportunities, housing, food security, and small business lending to deny wealth building to communities of color. Gender disparities to keep women out of the workforce and keep our economy from running at full force. It’s a convergence of tragedies that is not only economically unsustainable but one that betrays our commitment to giving every American an equal chance to get ahead.”

The identity obsessed left is focused almost entirely on Yellen’s gender:

Brooklyn native Janet Yellen was selected to lead President-elect Biden's economic team.
She would be the first woman to ever hold the title of Treasury Secretary.
There is no one more qualified to lead the U.S. Treasury at this critical moment for American families.

Yellen is another member of the permanent, unelected, bureaucrat class in Washington, DC.
In other words, the swamp.
