There Are More Red Flags Than Just Neera Tanden's Tweets

Republican senators profess they are offended over some of her now-deleted tweets that blasted the GOP and individual senators who she now needs to vote for her.
Now, Manchin is exerting his influence to derail and delay the confirmation of two women of color: Neera Tanden's nomination to lead the Office of Management and Budget, and Rep. Deb Haaland's nomination for Secretary of Interior. "Her past actions have demonstrated exactly the kind of animosity that President Biden has pledged to transcend". But given the slim majority Democrats hold, there will still be struggles along the way, namely from West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. But Ms. Tanden's nomination wouldn't have enough support to move forward if Mr. Manchin joins all Republicans in voting against her.
"The tone, the content, and the aggressive partisanship of some of Ms Tanden's public statements will make it more hard for her to work effectively with both parties", Portman said.
Still, Psaki said at the briefing Monday that the White House still sees a path to Tanden being nominated with 50 votes and Vice President Kamala Harris' tiebreak vote. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was confirmed 57-43, the closest margin thus far, though several other nominees are expected to face contentious confirmation hearings as well.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, another potential Republican yes vote, has also signaled to supporters she's unlikely to back Tanden.
On her Twitter profile, Tanden describes herself as, "President of @amprog-Center for American Progress, liberal, Indian American, feminist, mom, wife". One of those was a post that referred to Collins as "the worst". It's also not clear that every Democrat will ultimately vote in Tanden's favor.
During confirmation hearings, Thomas-Greenfield faced some criticism from Senate Republicans who labeled her soft on China, citing a 2019 speech she gave to the Chinese-funded Confucius Institute in which she praised China's massive infrastructure and influence program in Africa. But the damage is done, and she did it to herself. And I think that Lloyd Austin was more of a priority for him than has perhaps been discussed. Haaland, who now represents New Mexico's first congressional district, is not only qualified for the position, but her confirmation would make her the first Native American to run the Department of the Interior, and the first Native American Cabinet secretary ever. As I've said before, we must take meaningful steps to end the political division ... that pervades our politics. Tanden really can't afford to lose another Democratic vote.
Sperling - along with Bruce Reed, now the White House deputy chief of staff - was considered to lead OMB during the transition. Biden called that change a "first step", and urged lawmakers to pass his administration's proposed $1.9 trillion stimulus plan. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who caucuses with Democrats, who now chairs the Budget Committee and would be her principal contact. Without Manchin's support, the Democratic lawmakers would not be able to confirm Tanden on their own despite holding a very slim majority in the upper chamber.
And Xavier Becerra, chosen by the President to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, has emerged as a culture war lightning rod over his stance on abortion and Obamacare, a perennial fault line between Republicans and Democrats. In that role, she helped develop the Affordable Care Act, one of Mr. Obama's signature achievements in office.
For people over 80, one of the groups most at risk, the average risk reduction from the results of both vaccines was 81 percent. Following Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday, other political leaders received their vaccinations today in Canberra.
Lord Reed added: "The right to a fair hearing does not trump all other considerations, such as the safety of the public". Bangladesh has said it will not allow Begum entry and that she has no rights to the country's citizenship.
He added: "There's a diversity of opinion among Louisiana Republicans , even if there is not among a very small group of people". It's a contrast from the January 11 reports that Trump didn't even call to check on Pence after he had to flee for his life.
