The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday to confirm Sleepy Joe Biden nominee Rep. Marcia Fudge to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), making her the first woman to do so in more than 40 years.
Fudge, who will leave her Congressional seat to join the Biden administration, was confirmed by the Senate in a vote of 66-34. Some Republicans expressed concern over Fudge’s nomination, including Sen. Pat Toomey. Toomey said during a floor speech he was “concerned that Rep. Fudge’s past rhetoric makes clear that she lacks the temperament to cooperate with Congress… and casts doubt on whether she even wants to.”
Toomey added that Fudge has a history of “attacking and disparaging the motives of Republicans with whom she has policy disagreements” and stated that she once claimed Republicans “had no decency, no honor, no integrity. She went on to say… ‘that we are a disgrace to the nation.’”
The socialist Fudge also sparked controversy in January when she admitted to Sen. Tom Cotton, who quizzed her on the difference between equality and equity, that “sometimes, it’s not level if you just say, ‘Let’s just treat everyone the same.’”
So Fudge fits neatly into the Democrats’ anti-American insistence on equality of results, not equality of opportunity.
