Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding Saule Omarova withdrawing her nomination for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).
“Yesterday’s announcement that Saule Omarova withdrew her nomination for the OCC was a significant win for America—we must always reject Communism when it knocks at our doorstep. As a proud Capitalist and American, it deeply concerns me that the Biden administration found Omarova the appropriate nominee for such a role. I find it just as disturbing that a majority of the Democrats in the Senate stood ready to confirm her absurd nomination.
“Omarova’s nomination speaks to a more significant issue today, the growing and dangerous sympathizing of Communism, Socialism, and anti-Capitalist sentiment in the Democrat Party. Repeat after me, America will never be a Socialist country. I implore President Biden to nominate a person who puts Americans first, promotes innovation in our markets, and prioritizes sound fiscal policy for our nation’s federal banking systems.”
