AMERICA’S LARGEST NURSES UNION CALLS ON SENATE TO BLOCK WALL STREET VULTURE STEVEN MNUCHIN


In a letter to the Senate Committee on Finance, National Nurses United today announced its formal opposition to the confirmation of investment banker Steven Mnuchin as Secretary of the Treasurer.
 
“During every shift at health care facilities across the country, our members care for patients who are suffering from the devastating health and social impacts of U.S. financial policy—a policy that benefits Wall Street at the expense of Main Street—and a health care policy that puts profits ahead of people’s health,” wrote NNU Co-Presidents Deborah Burger, RN and Jean Ross, RN.
 
 As an investment banker for Goldman Sachs, and then operating a hedge fund, Mnuchin “played an active role in exacerbating the mortgage crisis and pushing policies that widen economic inequality,” they wrote.
