Progressive group slams two of Biden’s White House appointees as ‘corporate-friendly insiders’ | Fox News

If the election fraud holds up and Biden takes office we will at least have the consolation prize of watching them eat their own.

Progressive Democrats on Tuesday slammed President-elect Joe Biden’s appointments of Rep. Cedric Richmond and Steve Ricchetti to White House posts, calling them “unacceptable.” Justice Democrats executive director Alexandra Rojas blasted Biden’s appointments of Richmond, D-La., as senior adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement, and of Ricchetti as counselor to the president, claiming they were “corporate-friendly insiders.” BIDEN STARTS STAFFING UP WITH KEY WHITE HOUSE APPOINTMENTS “If Joe Biden continues making corporate-friendly appointments to his White House, he will risk quickly fracturing the hard-earned goodwill his team built with progressives to defeat Donald Trump,” Rojas said. “A Biden administration dominated by corporate-friendly insiders like Steve Ricchetti and Cedric Richmond will not help the President-elect usher in the most progressive Democratic administration in generations.” Rojas slammed Ricchetti, a longtime Biden adviser and Biden-Harris campaign chairman, saying thast, as a former pharmaceutical lobbyist, he “represented groups vociferous opposed to Medicare For All and the public manufacturing of prescription drugs.” “In this post-COVID era, Biden has a chance to make major reforms to our cruel health care system but it will require standing up to private power,” Rojas said. Rojas also hit Richmond, calling him “one of the top Democratic recipients of fossil fuel money.”
