Arizona has been the center of political speculation for months and now the top is about to blow.
“Despite the intense pressure campaign, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has reportedly told Democrats in the House of Representatives that she will not support President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar plan prior to passing the waiting bipartisan infrastructure bill,” report Breitbart News.
Sources from Reuters confirmed that “Sinema told Democrats of her decision during an online meeting that was also attended by Sen. Joe Manchin, who has also publicly opposed the bill’s excessive price tag.”
“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,” noted Reuters. “Congress already faces a pair of critical deadlines around Dec. 3, when the government faces the risk of shutdown and a historic debt default.”
Both Sens. Manchin and Sinema have been a thorn in the side of the Democrats as the progressive wing of the party has been anxiously pushing a massive “infrastructure” bill through legislation.
“I’ve been very clear when it comes to who we are as a society, who we are as a nation, and why we are still the hope of the world,” said Manchin. “I don’t believe that we should turn our society into an entitlement society. I think that we should still be a compassionate, rewarding society.”
