[Ed. – She’s not the only far-left nominee Biden has selected, but she’s one of the worst.]
President Joe Biden confirmed he is standing by Neera Tanden as his nominee for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Friday, despite accusations from Republicans and Democrats that she is too partisan for the role.
Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin dealt a potentially fatal blow to Tanden’s nomination Friday when he said various tweets and statements she made in the past disqualified her from the top spot at OMB. The OMB is entrusted with providing non-partisan reviews of congressional budget proposals and other legislation.
“I think we are going to find the votes and get her confirmed,” Biden told reporters Friday.
Manchin released a scathing statement opposing Tanden’s nomination Friday afternoon, saying she would be a “toxic and detrimental” influence on OMB.
