Only took us 231 years to get a woman as Treasury Secretary.
Janet Yellen would be an outstanding choice for Treasury Secretary. She is smart, tough, and principled. As one of the most successful Fed Chairs ever, she has stood up to Wall Street banks, including holding Wells Fargo accountable for cheating working families.
HUGE NEWS: Joe Biden has selected Janet Yellen as his Treasury Secretary!!!
Why hello there, men in my inbox, helpfully pointing out that the United States has in fact had a female Treasurer. It has! But it has not had a female Treasury Secretary, which is an entirely different position.
First Woman Vice President

Janet Yellen is a fucking awesome pick for Treasury Secretary.
At a moment of hyper partisanship, @JoeBiden
chooses an a-political, deeply experienced, trusted woman as Treasury Secretary.
Traditionally the roll involves a lot of politicking, but her expertise, reputation & fragile state of our economy may help us rise above the divide https://t.co/lE4t14Icvc
It’s official: Yellen will be the first female Fed Chair, first female Treasury Secretary, and second female CEA Chair.

Janet Yellen will be Treasury Secretary. The Modern Monetary Theory of @StephanieKelton
calls for merging the Fed and the Treasury into a single spending/monetization entity. With a former Fed head as new Treasury head, I'd say Mission Accomplished.
I agree entirely. Would have preferred @SenWarren
but we knew that wasn’t going to happen. Treasury Secretary is a hugely important role and Janet Yellen is a good choice. https://t.co/tcXvoEzfc5
