Yes, it means to cast a vote to break a tie among the voting Senators.
We didn't elect Joe Biden so that someone else could pull the strings behind the curtain. He is supposed to be the CEO, the decision-maker, not someone else. He was not elected to be a figurehead, or a guy that sleeps all day until it's time to make an appearance. We elected him to do the fucking job, and right now he ain't doing so good at it. You say the job is being done, but not everybody would agree with that. He's supposed to be out there leading the way but instead he's hiding away somewhere.
Obviously it does not matter to you, but it does to a lot of other people. You would've elected a dead dog to get rid of Trump. And actually you came about as close as you can get.
Nobody older than 60 should ever be able to run for President. We need a sharp intellectual leader not a cognitively compromised one. very few 60 year old people have serious cognitive issues. Term limits for Congress and Senate as well as published Cognitive tests for all future Congressmen Senators and Presidential Candidates... start now many couldn't pass already. to many Geriatrics in our Govt.He is in cognitive decline just like the last dotard in chief we need better leadership than this.
Biden is not going to resign and there is no reason for him to.
Should that unlikely possibility occur Harris would become President and a new VP would be selected...as was done with Nixon.
Ford was already VP after Agnew resigned.There are 3 ways that I know of to remove a sitting president:
1. Impeachment in the House and a conviction in the senate by a 2/3 vote for removal from office. Let's be honest, that ain't going to happen.
2. 25th Amendment. The Congress has to pass this through both chambers. That ain't going to happen either. Here's the problem for the democrats: once they do that, Kamala becomes the prez and there is no VP, which means they don't have the tie-breaker in any vote that goes 50-50. Kamala would have to nominate somebody, and the House and Senate would have to confirm that by a majority vote, which means 51-49 or better. IOW, a Repub would have to vote for Kamala's nominee, and that is a big deal because 50-50 doesn't cut it. So, without at least one Repub on their side, the Dems can't do shit in the Senate cuz they don't have the tie-breaking vote (no VP).
3. Biden can just resign, no impeachment and no 25th Amendment action. Same deal, as I understand it. When Nixon resigned, he nominated Gerald R. Ford to be his VP, and that nomination was confirmed by the House and the Senate by a wide majority. Would the Senate give up their power to block all democratic legislation without some bipartisan action? Doubtful.

So, will Joe step aside, or be forced to step aside? I don't think so, the democrats need Kamala Harris as the VP to cast tie-breaking votes in the Senate so they can pass stuff and confirm Supreme Court Justices. Clearly he is not up to the job; everybody knew it before the election, most of the time he couldn't even get out to campaign. And now we see that most of the time he isn't able to perform the duties of the presidency.
There is no "vote to confirm". If Biden resigns, Harris is President.If Harris becomes president then the VP office is vacant, and that means the democrats in the Senate do not have the tie-breaking vote, and that includes the vote to confirm the next VP no matter who it is. Without GOP support, everything the democrats want to do is dead. I think that means we are better off with Harris rather than Biden.
This was clearly wishful thinking. 13 dead soldiers now.There is no way the Senate will put Harris in the driver's seat. The cure would be worse than the problem. We have to hope the danger Obiden is putting Americans in, here and abroad, can be mitigated until we can get him out. Taking back the House will cripple him.
