Neera Tanden’s Nomination to Head OMB at Risk as Sen. Joe Manchin Vows to Vote “No”

HeadlineFeb 22, 2021

The confirmation of Neera Tanden to head the Office of Management and Budget is facing a challenge after West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin said last week he would not vote for her. At least one Republican would have to join Democrats in order to confirm Tanden. The progressive group RootsAction is also urging senators to reject Tanden due to her ties with corporate America and her support for welfare cuts.
