Key GOP senator says she won't support Tanden's OMB confirmation

华盛顿州 共和党参议员. 苏珊·柯林斯(Susan Collins)将投票反对提名内拉·坦登(Neera Tanden)担任总统,领导管理和预算办公室, 在民主党参议员之后再次受到确认的机会受到打击. 西弗吉尼亚州的乔曼钦 宣布 his opposition last week.

科林斯, a moderate from Maine, was seen as a potential Republican vote following Manchin’s decision not to support Tanden. Democrats hold the Senate by a 50-50 保证金, and Manchin’s announcement was seen as devastating for her chances.
She cited Tanden’s past criticisms of her Senate colleagues on social media for her decision and said the OMB nominee does not have theexperience nor the temperamentto lead the office.
Congress has to be able to trust the OMB director to make countless decisions in an impartial manner, carrying out the letter of the law and congressional intent,” Collins said in a statement Monday. “Neera Tanden has neither the experience nor the temperament to lead this critical agency. Her past actions have demonstrated exactly the kind of animosity that President Biden has pledged to transcend.
    Collins continued that Tanden’s deletion of tweets before her confirmation was announcedraises concerns about her commitment to transparency.
      Manchin also said he would vote against Tanden because of her past criticisms on social media about Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, as well as Vermont Sen. 伯尼·桑德斯, an independent who caucuses with Democrats.
      Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday he is working with President Joe Biden to gather support to confirm Tandem. The President has said he does not intend to pull Tanden’s nomination and that he believes they will find the votes to get her confirmed.
