Concerns about hindering implementation of major policies
Although it has been more than a month since the US government was launched on the 20th of last month, seven ministers and ministers who passed the Senate approval were found to be only 30% of the total. As the inauguration of ministers is delayed, it is pointed out that the promotion of major policies, such as responding to Corona 19, may also be hindered.
On the 22nd (local time), the US Senate held a personnel hearing on the candidate for Attorney General Merrick Garland. This was the basic procedure for the Senate approval ballot. Six ministers who have passed Senate approval to date include Secretary of State Tony Blincoln, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Transportation Secretary Pete Booty, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mallorcas. Of the 15 ministers, only 40% of them were approved. According to the political media The Hill, such approval results are far lower than those of the past regime. As of the 30th day of his inauguration, 11 ministers from the George W. Bush administration, 14 from the Barack Obama administration, and eight from the Trump administration were approved.
Of the eight ministerial-level officials who are not ministers, but are required to be approved by the Senate, Avril Haynes, Director of National Intelligence (DNI), has passed the approval. Only 30% of all 23 ministers, including the minister, were approved. It was predicted that the approval of Minister Biden would be delayed. The takeover of the regime was delayed due to former President Trump’s objection to the presidential election, and the formation of the Senate was delayed due to a final vote of the Georgia senator. Trump’s impeachment trial was also a factor that delayed the Senate’s approval of ministers.
Democratic Democratic Party leader Chuck Schumer said the goal this week is to finalize at least four voters, including Agriculture Minister Tom Billsack. However, some candidates have not even been scheduled for a hearing. It is pointed out that the vacancy of major positions such as the Minister of Education, the Minister of Energy, and the Small and Medium Business Administration is prolonged, which could disrupt the response of the Biden government to various issues and policies.
Vito’s public opinion in the Senate about the candidate Nira Tanden, the head of the Budget Office of the White House (OMB), which held a personnel hearing on the 9th, is also rising. The history of tweets of primary criticism against former President Trump and key Republicans have come to the fore.
Senators Mitt Romney and Susan Collins, moderates in the Republican Party, said they were against the Tanden candidate. Democratic Party Senator Joe Manchin also opposes, so it is impossible to secure a majority necessary for approval in this state.
