Yellen has been confirmed as Treasury Secretary.

I like Yellen, and I think she will be a good force for the return to normal.

Seems like they're going to fight on Becerra, too. I wonder what these two dudes have in common.

It'll be like:

 

GOP: Listen, if you compromise on the stimulus to cut it in half, and agree to keep the filibuster, then we'll agree in good faith to expand the lower courts.

Dems: Sounds good. *does all the first stuff*. Okay, now let's expand the lower courts.

GOP: Now is not the time, we must focus on the deficit.

Dems: That has nothing to do with the courts. *lose the house and senate in 2022*

The disingenuousness, hypocrisy, and cognitive dissonance has gone past farcical levels. I'm not even sure how to react anymore.

The Democrat Manchin's opposition to Tanden means only a Republican vote for her can save her confirmation to lead the OMB.

 

Meh. Off with her head. Or at least with her cabinet appointment, anyway.

GOP working to block Biden’s health care pick, Xavier Becerra; Dems unfazed

 

Quote

Republican opposition has grown louder ahead of his nomination hearings. On Monday, Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana and Tom Cotton of Arkansas released a letter in which they asked Biden to withdraw the nomination, calling Becerra “unfit for any position of public trust.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has called him “famously partisan.” And the political group Heritage Action for America launched a cable and digital ad campaign against Becerra.

 

Republicans say Becerra is a radical supporter of socialized medicine, abortion and curbs on religious liberty and that he has no medical experience.

 

Democrats are shrugging it off.

 

Republicans are “just flailing around,” Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden of Oregon said Monday. “They’ve done their best to try to find something that could stick in terms of their opposition, but there’s no ‘there’ there.”

 

Quote

In many ways, Becerra was California’s early face of opposition to the Trump administration. He was appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown to replace Harris and took over as attorney general in early 2017 as Trump became president.

 

Over four years, he filed 124 lawsuits, challenging the Trump administration on immigration, environmental and health care policies.

 

Quote

Democrats say he’s not outside the mainstream of their party, which strongly supports women’s access to abortion, and where single-payer government-run health care for all remains a popular policy position, even if Biden has made clear he doesn’t support it.

Bill Nelson is a stooge for the SLS boondoggle.  If he becomes the NASA administrator, I'm willing to bet he drastically cuts back on commercial launch services and pours more money (on top of the $20+ billion) into SLS, which is a cool rocket, but it's incredibly backwards thinking and ultra expensive.
