Another Biden Nominee Fails on the Senate Floor

Another Biden nominee has fallen flat.

On Wednesday, the Senate voted against a Biden nominee for a post within the Labor Department.

The Hill reports:

The upper chamber voted 51-49 to deny Lisa Gomez’s nomination to become assistant secretary for the Labor Department’s Employee Benefits Security Administration, with the vote splitting along party lines in the evenly divided Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) changed his vote to “no” amid Harris’s absence and filed a motion to allow him to bring up the nomination for another vote in the future.

According to Bloomberg, Republicans voted against Gomez for the post after GOP members expressed concerns about the agency’s retirement investing proposals, making Harris’s tiebreaking vote vital for confirmation.

Harris is visiting Los Angeles this week to attend the Summit of the Americas. It’s the first time the U.S. has hosted the gathering of leaders from North, Central and South America since the inaugural summit in 1994.

to what do you refer with your 160 years comment ?,…. 1862 would be wrong for the civil war, except as an inclusive year, so what does your ignorant prattle refer to ?,…. as for paying communists to abuse them?,…. the solution to that is to stop voting for the DemonRATs of the “tax and spent and waste”, pahhhhhti

Who the fxxx died and left these clowns to make decisions effecting our Countries laws? He was elected to be president, only congress makes the laws, not some corrupt democrat, who is failing in his position to govern. It’s not bidens place to try and change our constitution with his low IQ BS. Midterm will replace these non americans. We all agree with Zelnsky, biden his democrat BS that a small incursion is no big deal, how much did he and hunter make prior to Zelansky taking over, if you notice biden supported russia,still supports china, iran ,of course the Afghanistan retreat. Biden is more then a national security risk,he has been compromised by foreign money.

Was this an accident by the GOP or did they finally got something right and was it because they’re getting roasted by voters as the RINOs they are?
