Biden's Cabinet is mostly empty amid Senate bottleneck despite Democratic control

More than two-thirds of President Biden's Cabinet nominees are stuck in a procedural bottleneck as they wait to be considered by the Democratic-run chamber.

Biden was sworn into office with more nominees ready to go than any of his recent predecessors. But only seven of his 23 Cabinet-level officials have been Senate-confirmed one month into his administration. Another handful of picks have cleared their respective Senate committees; they're simply waiting to receive a full-floor vote in the chamber. And more have hearings scheduled for next week.

But as the new White House takes over the country's coronavirus pandemic without a Health and Human Services secretary or a confirmed head of the Education Department, the Senate last week was not in legislative session. Instead, senators took a weeklong break from floor activity and committee work after acting as jurors during former President Donald Trump's second unsuccessful impeachment trial. The chamber annually takes five business days off, starting with Presidents Day, but the majority leader, in this case, Democrat Chuck Schumer, can alter those plans. He did not.

Biden aides tasked with shepherding the president's nominees through their confirmations appear to becoming increasingly anxious over the delays.

On display for the world to see, democrats know how to lie, thieve, steal, con and attack, BUT THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GOVERN.  Just ask a Texan or an American desperately waiting on money, the foreigners have already gotten.  Obama or Biden take over, the economy tanks. Trump takes over, in 6 months the unrecoverable economy, recovers.

Appearances of incompetence are for the tourists, and the absence of people in those seats will allow a lot to be manipulated behind the scenes that can't be blamed on the people who might have taken the heat. When that is done, they will whip out the 25th, use the appearance of ineffectiveness to send Slow Joe home, and I don't mean the West Wing. Then they can take over the rackets and cash in. Disarming Americans is just an insurance policy.

There are no "Socialists", no "Progressives", only Communists, with every negative image that totalitarianism might muster, demanding fealty and conformity to their views, with a legacy of 150,000,000 dead and counting.

That was no insurrection. An insurrection would have brought miles of rope.

And that "procedural bottleneck" is ........ not mentioned or explained in the article. The article also fails to mention the Senate time wasted by Shampeachment 2.0. :chairbang: The article feels more like a Biden promo piece ****sheep**** , "Approve my nominees or it will hurt the country!" :chairbang:

Maybe Biden should refrain from appointing hyper-partisan crazies like Tanden.

Stand fast, folks.

Anything which slows this communist juggernaut down can't be all bad.
