Investigative journalist Peter Chowka discusses the senators’ oppositions to President Biden’s nominee.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Me., said Monday that she will not support President Biden's nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget, Neera Tanden, dealing another blow to the odds of confirmation.
"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 on Monday. "Neera Tanden has neither the experience nor the temperament to lead this critical agency."
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., said last week that he would oppose her nomination, partially because of her "overly partisan" statements and tweets. Collins also voiced concerns over Tanden's Twitter account.
