Despite intense pressure from the radicals in her own party to change her position, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) reportedly has told Democrats in the House of Representatives that she will not support President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar plan prior to passing the infrastructure bill.
“In an online meeting, Sinema and fellow Senate moderate Joe Manchin said they would not abide by any deadlines adopted by leadership to force votes on the package,” reported sources. “Congress already faces a pair of critical deadlines around Dec. 3, when the government faces the risk of shutdown and a historic debt default.”
Sinema, who has reportedly not even been returning Biden’s phone calls, recently headed off to Europe as the fate of the bill hangs in the balance. “Sinema’s congressional office did not comment on the senator’s travels, but New York Times’ sources told the publication Sinema had meetings in Paris and London,” according to Breitbart News.
The maverick Sinema’s intransigence is infuriating Dem radicals who hate anyone obstructing their destructive agenda. It will be interesting to see just how far they will go to coerce her into compliance.
