    Surge Summary: President Biden’s nominees continue to run up against obstacles, confirming: these people are not right for the U.S. Government.

    Confirmation Update

    As we reported [Tuesday], Neera Tanden’s nomination to lead the Office of Management and Budget is in trouble.  Scheduled Senate hearings [Wednesday] to advance her nomination were abruptly called off, and the Biden White House is scrambling to save her.

    Meanwhile, Xavier Becerra, Biden’s nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, is running into growing opposition.  For one thing, he’s a lawyer with no background in medicine.  He is currently attorney general of California, and has spent decades in public office.

    [Tuesday], several senators grilled Becerra about his pro-abortion extremism, noting that he even opposed the ban on partial-birth abortions.  He also tried to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs.  It’s hard to imagine how any moderate senator could support such an extreme nominee.

    Here’s another example of Becerra’s extremism:  He supports providing healthcare to illegal immigrants, something the public strongly rejects.  But if he’s confirmed, Politico writes that Becerra “will have the power to make public benefits for undocumented workers a reality.”
