An Arizona Democrat's unfathomable opposition to progress is a win for her hedge-fund, Big Pharma donors, and a huge loss for democracy.

Sinema’s opaque obstructionism has become the grapes of wrath for President Biden and their fellow Democrats seeking to invest $350 billion a year to continue child tax credits for the middle class, expand child care, fight climate change and offer free community college. The plan is foundering largely because of vague but obstinate opposition from Sinema and her money-soaked doppelganger Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, when Democrats need all 50 of their senators onboard. Advocates believe the real problem is how Biden and his allies want to pay for this: Largely by raising taxes on Sinema’s filthy rich patrons such as Price and Gates.

Right because any politician that doesn't vote for more socialism and increased taxes must be owned by lobbyists. Sinema understands that she represents a state with a lot of us who do not want the Biden redistribution of wealth programs.

Do you have any trouble with the socialized spending of the GMIC that now owns and controls both sides of DC? It has helped create lots of cool tech stuff. But now that corporations are people, from the goodness of their hearts they should invest their hoarded $-Trillions into Green Tech and jobs Hemp can create with the paper, plastics, textiles and bio-fuel we can produce from hemp.

Sinema quickly joined other Democrats who'd followed the Citizens United path to the flashing neon lights of big money joining the so-called "Problem Solvers" caucus that owes its existence in part to the Wall Street-funded front group "No Labels"..
