Joe Biden Fills The Swamp

Joe Biden Fills the Swamp
  • This week, the Senate will continue holding hearings on Joe Biden’s cabinet nominees. 
  • Biden’s cabinet picks continue to raise eyebrows for a history of self-dealing and corruption.
  • Former Obama Administration official Thomas Vilsack has been nominated to serve as the Secretary of Agriculture.
    • By selecting Valsick, Biden disappointed farm groups who had rallied their support around former Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND).
    • Democrat activists have also been sharply critical of the pick, with Mitch Jones, policy director for Food and Water Watch, an environmental advocacy group, saying that “Vilsack has made a career of catering to the whims of corporate agriculture giants, some of whom he has gone to work for.” 
  • Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has been nominated to serve as the Secretary of Labor.
