Why this stinking commie hasn't been flushed down the sewer yet I don't understand. This total joke of a creature shouldn't be allowed within a 1000 miles of the levers of government, much less get an actual hearing. We all know who really nominated this red diaper baby.

This has to stop. Communism is not what America is or wants to be. Who is responsible for pushing this nominee? They should be outed and fired, and this commie should never get near our banking system.

I'll be looking for alternatives to 'banking' if this commie is promoted. She may not be able to fully implement her intrusive ideas, but she will lay the foundation for whatever comes next. With this administration, for the first time in my 60+ years that I dread the 'what comes next' part. Every dang day.

Does Saule want to set an example and eliminate her bank accounts and all her other wealth first, or does she just want to steal ours?

Picture this if you will, in the name of fairness, helping the poor, blah, blah, blah. Your government, the sweetest smelling government in the world, is going to absorb your 401k. But fret not, frugal savior, in exchange you will receive a monthly stipend to be determined by the government. You must appreciate that the government can do a better job of save guarding your savings, than you can risking it in the dangerous stock market. In making this move, your savings can be more evenly distributed to those who aren't able to save. Feel free to picket outside of your local Merrill Lynch office when you receive your notification letter.

How is it more equitable to take from someone who worked to earn something and give it to someone else? And that someone else will be the gubmint (70%) and those who do nothing to earn anything? You don't create wealth by dividing it.

To Surrender Joe and his minions, all citizens are resources of the Federal Government, to be used as the Fed desires. The loon behind the Federal takeover of bank accounts, Saule Omarova, is a Marxist and a Chicom acolyte. Her model is the Chicom banking system. Enough said. Poll every politican in Congress, do they agree with her or not? Publish their response.

FTA - "Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said Omarova’s support of Communist ideals” disqualifies her for the position." I strongly disagree with the senator. Her position makes her highly qualified in the Jobama Xiden administration. Is there anyone who disagrees? The entirety of his administration is made up of Che wannabes. She is no different. It's bad enough that Obama systematically purged the military of real military men and women. But our "elected" representatives continue to allow these openly unAmerican enemies to openly serve. We Are Rome.

FTA: “Republicans will overwhelmingly oppose this self-described radical,” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) told Axios. Fabulous news! Of the 50 Pubbie senators - - probably only 19 will vote to confirm this communist. Don't you see? That means that 62% of the Pubbie caucus - - an "overwhelming" number - - will stand up against this direct communist assault. Gee - - aren't you glad the Pubbies are on our side?

The most dangerous word these racist liberals say is “equitably”. For example, the COVID-19 antibody treatment is distributed “equitably” — which means white people are denied treatment.(Seriously, there’s an article about this here.) Start changing all your records to say Hispanic or black or whatever. They’ll steal from all whites.

if they eliminate private bank accounts, what are the odds you would get your money back? Probably zero. That's the other show waiting to drop. Just know they will need more money to combat climate change. Its for the 'greater good' ! We have to 'Save the Planet' ! If you oppose something like that, you are a 'criminal'. The rule of law is no longer based on the constitution. Its whatever our government wants it to be. And once again, where are the Republicans? Nothing the Democrats do surprise me anymore. This should have been derailed months ago. More and more, Washington shows its totalitarian stripes.

The purpose of her proposals is to make it easier for radical government to steal what belongs to you with just a click of the keyboard without any congressional action or judicial interference. Liberals always live under the delusion that they know better than everyone else what to do with your money. They forget its YOUR money, not theirs. Since this a nominee position, she can be removed by the next president's discretion. This just goes to show how out of touch Biden is with what's going on. No one in his right mind would support such a preposterous idea

After they have taken YOUR money you then must apply if you want xyz amount and for what purpose. If the dear little commie government deems it unnecessary you just won't your money for whatever purpose you intended! You want $$ for a funeral, well, sorry, that won't do. Just dig a hole, put body in plastic bag and throw it in. Shovel dirt bag over. Done. The government saved you a lot of $$$ that they can now spend on projects they see fit. Perhaps they might want to bring in gazillion more illegals that they will give your $$$ to because they were separated from the rest of their family to enter the US illegally.
