Cornyn spox says Biden pick for OMB has “zero chance” of being confirmed

The NY Times reported Joe Biden is expected to name top members of his economic team this week, including Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget. Tanden helped craft the ACA/ Obamacare during the Obama admin. She is also a former Hillary adviser. 

Drew Brandewie, spokesperson for Senator John Cornyn, does not think the polarizing figure will be approved.

Brandewie tweeted “Neera Tanden, who has an endless stream of disparaging comments about the Republican Senators’ whose votes she’ll need, stands zero chance of being confirmed.”

One supporter of Tanden wrote “Joe Biden set to tap Neera Tanden to run the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Tanden runs the largest progressive org in the country (Center for American Progress); is smart and tenacious; and takes no shit from weak men threatened by strong women. Congrats @neeratanden.”

Kenneth Vogel tweeted “Under @NeeraTanden’s leadership, @AMProg
accepted millions of dollars from Wall Street, big banks, tech titans (including Mark Zuckerberg), foreign governments (including the United Arab Emirates), defense contractors & the health care industry.”
