Senator Pat Toomey wants to read Cornell University professor Saula Omarova’s thesis on Karl Marx, since Omarova became President Biden’s pick to lead the office of Comptroller of the Currency.
But the document has been scrubbed from her resume.
Now, after weeks after Omarova was first nominated to the post, Toomey, R-Pa., is again asking for the thesis written during her time at Moscow State University in the 1980s…
…The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board wrote last week that Omarova’s “radical ideas might make even Bernie Sanders blush,” pointing to a number of her views, including the professor’s push to create a “National Investment Authority” in the U.S.
According to far-left group Data For Progress, “The NIA would operate alongside the Treasury and the Federal Reserve and directly allocate both public and private capital to clean infrastructure projects that currently do not get funded in private markets on the necessary scale,” and “will actively participate in financial markets not only as a lender, guarantor, and market-maker but also as an active asset manager and venture capital investor.”
