Over Before It Starts? Sinema Says No To $3.5T Democrat-Only Bill,

• by Tyler Durden

Remember how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she'd hand-grenade any bipartisan infrastructure bill unless a larger, $3.5 trillion Democratic-only bill was passed in the Senate via reconciliation (requiring a simple majority)?

Looks like it'll be a no-go on both, after Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) said on Wednesday that she does not support the $3.5 trillion package.

"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," Sinema said in a statement to The Arizona Republic.
