Cotton Statement on Janet Yellen Confirmation Vote

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the confirmation vote for Janet Yellen to be U.S. Secretary of the Treasury:

“Joe Biden pledged unity, but his top priority for our economy is to rig the system so that people are treated differently on the basis of race. The woke commissars who run the government call this ‘equity,’ but separating people into buckets based on their skin color will always be immoral. Janet Yellen has served the public for many years, but I will not support nominees who’ve indicated they will advance Joe Biden’s divisive economic vision for our country,” said Cotton.
