Joe Biden has good reason to be worried about his cabinet picks – depending on the outcome of the Georgia runoff election, Republicans in the Senate could be in a position to block his more radical picks.
So why did Joe nominate abortion extremist Xavier Beccera for HHS secretary? You have to believe that Joe isn’t making his own decisions. Let’s now forget that Beccera is closely linked to fellow California radical Kamala Harris, who held the California AG’s job before him.
Now, Beccera’s nomination is causing major backlash among Republicans. Fox reports:
Republicans slammed President-elect Joe Biden after he announced his choice of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for secretary of Health and Human Services on Monday, and they criticized Becerra’s record on abortion and other issues.
Xavier Becerra spent his career attacking pro-life Americans and tried to force crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortions.
He’s been a disaster in California and he is unqualified to lead HHS.
I’ll be voting no, and Becerra should be rejected by the Senate. https://t.co/mEvpMrqPeH

❌ continued persecution (started by predecessor Kamala Harris) of citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in baby parts trafficking
❌ tried to force pro-life pregnancy centers to refer for abortion
❌ voted for partial birth abortion

Now the only question is whether Republicans have the numbers to block Beccera’s nomination. A lot of that will depend on the election results in Georgia.
