GOP Rep. Cammack: Omarova ‘Not Fit’ to Be Banking Nominee

November 26, 2021

Friday on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company, Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) reacted to five Democrat senators reportedly opposing President Joe Biden’s nomination of Saule Omarova as the Comptroller of the Currency, saying the Marxist philosophy of the banking nominee makes her “not fit” for the job.

“The thing about this administration that baffles me — I truly do not know where their heads are at. They are so far removed from reality. It’s concerning,” Cammack stated. “You know when you have someone, and I think about Senator Kennedy’s remarks when he addressed her, ‘is it professor or comrade?’ Her philosophies are rooted in Marxism. She is not fit to be our banking nominee.”

“But, again, it’s just like the typical Biden administration that we’ve seen over the last 11 months,” she continued. “They are willing to put everything on the line, consequences be damned, because they believe that they are somehow virtuous in pursuing this ultra-progressive, leftist ideology. But we see that their policies are hurting America. We know that this banking nominee will only exacerbate these problems.

“It’s pretty simple,” she concluded. “I know I have a minor in economics, not a major and certainly not a master’s or a Ph.D., but I can tell you this — when government spends more, people like you and me and everyone around the country, we have less in our pockets. It’s really that simple.”
