Maxine Waters: Biden's 'Victory' is the ‘Dawn of a New Progressive America’
House Financial Services chairwoman touts Biden 'win'
Democrat Maxine Waters hailed presidential candidate Joe Biden's "victory" during a hearing, saying the former vice president received a “mandate" to bring “the dawn of a new progressive America.”
The House Financial Services chairwoman said:
“On November 3, American decisively rejected President Trump his harmful policies and his dangerous rhetoric."
"The American people have given President-elect Joe Biden a mandate to reverse the harmful policies of the Trump administration.”
“It is clear that America wants an economic system that works for them and not against them," she continued.
"I was inspired by the words of President-Elect Biden on how he wants to unify the country."
"As ever, I stand ready to work with members on both sides of the aisle and to incoming Biden administration on reforming our financial system so that consumers and investors have the protections they need," she added.
"President-elect Biden has already begun the work of building a future for our nation," Waters continued.
"Monday, we established a coronavirus task force showing how fiercely he is working on this virus.”
“I am putting witnesses on notice that I will be working with the Biden administration to roll back these rules."
"These financial regulations and the approach to diversity and inclusion in this country, they are going to change for the better," she said.
"With the historic election of this country’s first woman and person of color to serve as vice president, it is already changing for the better, and under my leadership, the committee has led the way on diversity and inclusion.”
“We are emerging from the dark days of the Trump administration into the dawn of a new progressive America, where pro-consumer and pro-investor policies will always be first on the agenda.”
Earlier this month, Waters blasted black Trump supporters, calling those who intend to cast ballots for President "shameful.”
"He is not doing anything for us. For those black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump, not only are they terrible mistaken, any of them showing their face, I will never ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities.”
