<p>Collins also claimed Tanden did not have sufficient experience for the job, as <a href=”https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/22/politics/susan-collins-neera-tanden/index.html” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>CNN</a> reports.</p><p>Tanden has been president of the Center for American Progress for nearly a decade, and served within the Obama administration as senior adviser to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. She also served as associate director for domestic policy in the Clinton White House.</p><p><a href=”https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/08/the-clinton-transition-team-takes-shape/496034/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>The Atlantic</a> in 2016 also reported “Tanden was a key architect of the Affordable Care Act after serving as a top policy adviser for Clinton’s 2008 bid.” But it was her work drafting a public option for ObamaCare, later tossed, that may be the most threatening aspect of Tanden, not her “mean tweets.”</p><p>Indeed, Collins and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin both cited Tanden’s active and adversarial Twitter account as one of the main reason they will vote against her.</p><p>”Neera Tanden has neither the experience nor the temperament to lead this critical agency,” Collins said in a statement Monday. “Her past actions have demonstrated exactly the kind of animosity that President Biden has pledged to transcend.”</p><p>In a show of good will and a strong signal that she is very willing to work with Republicans, Tanden apologized many times for her tweets during her Senate Budget Committee confirmation hearing. She also deleted over a thousand of them.</p><p>Collins used that act of contrition as a weapon against Tanden, saying it “raises concerns about her commitment to transparency.”</p><p>Some of the tweets Tanden deleted?</p><p>These, about Senator Collins:</p><div class=”twitter-tweet twitter-tweet-rendered” style=”display: flex; max-width: 550px; width: 100%; margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;”><iframe allowfullscreen=”true” allowtransparency=”true” class=”” data-tweet-id=”1333210977152667652″ frameborder=”0″ id=”twitter-widget-0″ scrolling=”no” src=”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&amp;embedId=twitter-widget-0&amp;frame=false&amp;hideCard=false&amp;hideThread=false&amp;id=1333210977152667652&amp;lang=en&amp;origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rawstory.com%2Fr%2Fentryeditor%2F2650697774%23&amp;theme=light&amp;widgetsVersion=889aa01%3A1612811843556&amp;width=550px” style=”position: static; visibility: visible; width: 550px; height: 498px; display: block; flex-grow: 1;” title=”Twitter Tweet”></iframe></div><script async=”” charset=”utf-8″ src=”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”></script><p>But Tanden did not delete all her tweets about Collins.
