AOC Went All In on Obstructionist Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema
Democrats celebrated in early January when Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were elected to the US Senate. Those elections gave Liberals a majority in the house and senate to go along with the White House.
Unfortunately, two Democratic senators have refused to play ball. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin has consistently prevented Joe Biden from pushing his policies through.
On Wednesday, Sinema explained why she wasn’t on board with Biden’s infrastructure package. She wrote in a statement:
“After reviewing the Senate Budget Committee’s outline, I have told Senate leadership and President Biden that I support many of the goals in this proposal to continue creating jobs, growing American competitiveness, and expanding economic opportunities for Arizonans. I have also made clear that while I will support beginning this process, I do not support a bill that costs $3.5 trillion – and in the coming months, I will work in good faith to develop this legislation with my colleagues and the administration to strengthen Arizona’s economy and help Arizona’s everyday families get ahead.”
This led to an immediate response from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The progressive congresswoman wrote in a tweet, “Good luck tanking your own party’s investment on childcare, climate action, and infrastructure while presuming you’ll survive a 3 vote House margin – especially after choosing to exclude members of color from negotiations and calling that a ‘bipartisan accomplishment.'”

WATCH: Joy Reid Slams Kyrsten Sinema For Pretending to Care About Voting Rights
Democrats rejoiced in January when wins by Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff won their races giving the party control of the senate. And that advantage allowed them to push through a major COVID relief bill that aided millions of Americans.
But the party has a much bigger agenda they would like to accomplish. Unfortunately, Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema seem to be standing in the way of their progress.
During a Wednesday night segment, Joy Reid took Sinema to task for pretending to care about the Democratic agenda without really supporting it. The host told her audience:
“She (Sinema) understands what’s happening in her own state. I can only conclude that she supports what they’re doing and wants it to proceed because she says – she’s on the bill – she’s a cosponsor [of the For the People Act that addresses voting rights]. That’s real convenient to let her show up at Black churches on MLK Day, so she can cover herself that way. But I can not conclude other than that what she sees happening that Republicans are doing, she’s for it, because she’s not for changing it. She’s not for stopping it. I don’t know what else to conclude.”
