Neera Tanden has “no chance of being confirmed" to head the Office of Management and Budget in the Biden administration, Sen. Tom Cotton told "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday.
The Arkansas Republican said “she might as well step aside or Joe Biden might as well withdraw her and go back to the drawing board,” claiming the main problems with her are “her radical liberal ideas.”
Cotton said, “This is a woman who wants Congress to hold up coronavirus relief for the American people so we can give checks to illegal immigrants.”
The New York Post reported that Tanden, the chief executive of the Center for American Progress, has deleted more than 1,000 of her tweets, including many that were very critical of Republican senators that she may need support from if she hopes to win confirmation.
Cotton said Biden’s far-left nominees “belie the points he’s made since the election that he wants to govern from a sense of unity.”
He also criticized Biden's choice of Janet Yellen for treasury secretary, who Cotton said "helped preside over a low growth stagnant economy that didn't create the kind of jobs and wages that working-class Americans need."
He emphasized that "It's just another example of how Joe Biden is going back to the Obama-Biden era, where we're going to have more taxes and more regulations, not have a government that stands with and stands beside the American people, but rather one that tries to ride the back of the American people with one-size-fits-all policies coming from Washington."
