Biden Labor Pick Defeated with Help of Three Democrats

Joe Biden has suffered another major defeat in terms of filling his cabinet.

David Weil’s nomination failed with a vote of 47-53.

Three Democrats Senators crossed the line, sending Weil packing.

That Would Be a No

Biden’s nominees have lied their faces off during these confirmation hearings.

Weil, however, had a record to stand on, having served in the Obama administration.

Republicans saw enough of him the first time around, and they did not want to see the sequel.

However, to defeat him, they needed at least one Democrat to cross the line.

They ended up getting three of them.

Senators Manchin (D-W.V.), Sinema (D-AZ), and Mark Kelly (D-AZ) all said no.

The big fear with Weil was that he would put in punishing measures that would have crushed small business owners and independent contractors.

Manchin, on Thursday, stated, “Mr. Weil’s track record and previous statements are problematic for many West Virginia employees and business owners.

“Ultimately, I could not support Mr. Weil because I do not believe that the health and well-being of our small businesses and the employees who rely on their success would be his utmost priority.”

International Franchise Association president Matthew Haller celebrated the denial, stating, “Tonight’s vote sends a strong signal that Americans and small business owners are tired of overregulation and policies that make it harder to provide for their employees and grow their business.

“IFA is proud of our members who made their voice heard and will continue to work with the Administration and Congress to protect the franchise business model and the countless opportunities it provides.”

Moderate Democrats have to be very careful because Biden nominees, thus far, have looked Congress in the eye and said one thing while doing the complete opposite as soon as they got into office.

This is a definite win for conservatives.
