Defeating the Pandemic Requires Direct Economic Relief for People Left Behind by Trump—Yellen Is The Right Pick For The Job.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Tax March declared its support for Janet Yellen to serve as Treasury Secretary as the confirmation process begins for the former chair of the Federal Reserve. To echo Yellen’s own words, the Biden administration must repeal the disastrous Trump-era policies that have worsened this recession and commit to providing ongoing direct economic relief to the millions of people—workers, women, minorities, small business owners—who have been left behind by Trump’s failed economic agenda.

Tax March Executive Director Maura Quint released the following statement:

“Janet Yellen understands that if we want to completely defeat the pandemic and recession, we have to uplift the American people—not just big businesses and the ultra-wealthy.

“With millions unemployed and struggling to make ends meet, the American people need ongoing, direct relief dedicated to empowering the people who have been left behind by Trump’s disastrous four years in office. To safeguard our economy from future collapse, the Biden administration will need to rewrite the broken rules of our economy by raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations, as well as repealing the Trump tax cuts responsible for widening the wealth gap.”
