Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are getting even worse news from within the Democrat ranks of Congress.
According to Breitbart News, “Political allies close to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema reportedly told Axios that the ‘wine-drinking triathlete’ will not be bullied into supporting the partisan $3.5 trillion reconciliation package Democrats are using to push part of President Joe Biden’s radical agenda.”
Sinema is a rare moderate Democrat who’s unwillingness to engage in progressive group think has been a thorn in the side of Democrat leadership.
Reports are rolling in that Sinema is “prepared to walk away” from Biden’s agenda.
Sinema’s concerns, according to Axios, are as follows:
– She’s suggested to some allies that she’s reluctant to support any increase in the corporate tax rate, but she’s more likely to accept a smaller increase to the headline rate — likely in the 24% range, well short of Biden’s proposed 28%.
– She’s raised flags about increasing the rate on corporations’ international profits, which she believes could harm their competitiveness.
– On capital gains, she’s also indicated that she’s opposed to Biden’s headline 39.6% rate but could accept a number in the mid-twenties.
