Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) declared Tuesday that the only experience President Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services (HHS) nominee, Xavier Becerra, has with “health care is that he sued the Little Sisters of the Poor” as a “trial lawyer.”
Cruz insisted Becerra is an example of an “extreme nominee,” noting “the Biden Administration likes to talk about their science based [politics], and their priority of stopping COVID [coronavirus].”
“Well, Becerra has no background in virology; he never worked at a pharmaceutical company, and his only health care experience is that he sued the Little Sisters of the Poor,” Cruz pointed out.
The Little Sisters of the Poor is a Catholic religious institute for women, which won in 2020 won a victory in a years-long battle to assert their First Amendment right to religious freedom against the contraceptive mandate in Obamacare, which Becerra fought to uphold.

Becerra also faced criticized from 11 Republican Senators for a “lack of healthcare experience,” in a letter they wrote to Biden:
We write to express our grave concerns regarding the nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to serve as the next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Mr. Becerra’s lack of healthcare experience, enthusiasm for replacing private health insurance with government-run Medicare-for-all, and embrace of radical policies on immigration, abortion, and religious liberty, render him unfit for any position of public trust, and especially for HHS Secretary.
The GOP senators specifically noted in the letter that Becerra lacks the experience in the healthcare field necessary to combat the coronavirus.
“Mr. Becerra’s lack of qualifications is particularly alarming given the important role the HHS Secretary will play in efforts to develop and distribute vaccines, coordinate research efforts, and draft critical regulations to carry out recovery legislation.”
They also emphasized Becerra’s advocacy for single-payer health care would eliminate 160 million Americans’ private health insurance:
This radical position is not a recent or passing fancy. As Mr. Becerra proudly told California Healthline in 2019, “I’ve been a single-payer advocate all my life.” As the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on our nation, Mr. Becerra’s determination to strip Americans of their private health insurance isn’t just bad policy, it’s dangerous.
“We ask that you put our country over radical partisan objectives by withdrawing Mr. Becerra’s nomination for HHS Secretary,” the Republicans concluded in their letter to Biden.

He was forced to bubble with his ex Olivia Wilde during her stint in London, for the sake of their two children.
But actor Jason Sudeikis looked like he was putting that all behind him as he was pictured filming Christmas scenes for Ted Lasso in London on Tuesday.

He had a big smile on his face as he watched things unfold, wearing a padded coat and grey jogging bottoms.
Ted Lasso is an American comedy TV series, based on a character of the same name that Sudeikis first portrayed in a series of promos for NBC Sports' coverage of the Premier League.
But it's a busy time for Jason who temporarily moved in with his ex, Olivia, 36, so they could both spend time with son Otis, six, and four-year-old daughter Daisy.
The Mail on Sunday revealed the pair formed a bubble in a mansion in South-West London after Ms Wilde and her new boyfriend Harry Styles, 27, jetted into the UK from Los Angeles two weeks ago so she could see the kids.

Sources close to the pair say Olivia first isolated following her flight earlier this month. Sudeikis and Ms Wilde went their separate ways last year.
Former One Direction singer Styles is understood to be staying elsewhere despite jetting to the UK with his new girlfriend.
One source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘It all seems a bit awkward, things have moved fast between Harry and Olivia so [this] must be strange but how nice they are doing it for the kids . . . You’d think it’s all quite difficult.’
It is understood the pair made the decision so Sudeikis could film his series, which will go to Apple, without posing any risk to his co-stars.
Olivia and Harry have been dating since last November and in January they were seen at the wedding of the singer’s manager Jeff Azoff in Montecito, California.
