Republicans in 33 states have introduced more than 165 bills to restrict voting rights. I don't want to say keeping the majority in 2022 is going to be impossible if they manage to pass them all but I would rest a whole lot easier if Congress would pass the new Voting Rights Act before 2022. If the GOP wins either chamber or both in 2022 then that's not going to pass and we'll head into 2024 with a party that wants to kill democracy and a roll back of voting rights.Everybody expects our new President to do everything they want right away. He's got 4 years to take care of everything.
Democrats can’t keep promising to legalize all undocumented and then move on to some other issue! They keep doing that. Plus legalizing so many millions of people will create new voters for them and then they can make it easier for them to vote.I don't understand why the Biden Administration is pushing for an immigration bill before a voting rights bill (i.e., acting on HR1). Both are important, of course, but I'm far more concerned with voting rights reform right now. Has anyone read/heard anything about where voting rights are in terms of the administration's agenda?? I was hoping they would be the first thing addressed after the current ********* relief bill.
If a public figure doesn't want to be judged by her tweets, then she shouldn't tweet.Manchin will vote against Neera Tanden because of her tweets. https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/19/politics/joe-manchin-neera-tanden-confirmation-biden/index.html
I'm glad that Sessions, Pompeo, Barr, Perry, Nielsen, Chao and Kavanaugh were so much better fits for their jobs and so much less objectionable.

If you think putting someone like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court is cool, then you shouldn't be bothered by tweets.If a public figure doesn't want to be judged by her tweets, then she shouldn't tweet.
There are far worse reasons for voting not to confirm someone than this.
fox did show President Biden speaking at the Pfizer facility,I'm still reading comments by the Trumpists and other Republicans about "sleepy dementia Joe" unable to get out of the basement to actually do things.
I just shake my head and wonder what garbage Fox News, Newsmax, OAN, QAnon and Parlor are feeding them.
Someone posted a picture of Biden presidential schedule and it was marked FAKE NEWS.
Really they are not in touch with reality.
In what sounds suspiciously like an example of ‘cancel culture’ in action, Sen Susan Collins has said she will vote against the confirmation of Neera Tanden as director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in part because of her record on Twitter.
I don't disagree, it's just hard to believe that people who voted to confirm Kavanaugh are truly concerned about temperament or job fitness. (Collins claims Tanden doesn't have the temperament for the job and Manchin says she isn't fit for the job due to her tweets).She's extremely vindictive and regardless of what some folks are saying about her "she's receiving backlash because of she's a POC or woman". She's earned that backlash and wrong is wrong no matter who does it.

I don't want Tanden confirmed at all cost. To be honest, I'm not quite sure why Biden nominated her. Someone somewhere must have been aware of the tweets.
What I want is journalists calling those Senators out on their double standards. They should not get away with it (again).
You're correctDid you mean to say you should NOT be considered for a cabinet position?
