“I could not think of a more qualified person to lead the Council of Economic Advisers- Dr. Rouse’s career has been focused on workers and economic security. She will bring that expertise to the CEA and help the Biden-Harris Administration build an equitable economy that works for everyone. I discussed a wide range of issues with Dr. Rouse, including the pandemic, the child tax credit and earned income tax credit, and supporting our nation’s unbanked and underbanked communities. I fully support her nomination and urge my colleagues to do the same.”
