Here’s what happened…
Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema said once again that she is not going to vote in favor of President Biden’s whopping $3.5 trillion spending bill which has caused a massive roadblock for Democrats.
Sinema’s office recently announced, “Senator Sinema said publicly more than two months ago, before Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, that she would not support a bill costing $3.5 trillion. In August, she shared detailed concerns and priorities, including dollar figures, directly with Senate Majority Leader [Chuck] Schumer and the White House. Claims that the Senator has not detailed her views to President Biden and Senator Schumer are false.”
According to Fox News, President Biden has gotten quite desperate to pass his spending bill because he has personally met with Senator Sinema and Senator Joe Manchin multiple times to encourage to vote yes on the bill with no luck.
Manchin has indicated that he will not vote yes on any amount of spending over $1.5 trillion.
Rep. Ilhan Omar criticized Manchin and Sinema saying, “We need to know what he’s a skeptic on so that we can have the conversation with him. There has been no clarity in what they actually want, both Sinema and Manchin.”
