AOC Blasts Sinema
On Wednesday, Senator Krysten Sinema (D., AZ) said she would not go along with the House Democrat's proposed $3.5 trillion package. Here's AOC's response.
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." ???????????????? https://t.co/0VF8Z73vAa— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 28, 2021
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., MI), Chimes In
Sinema seems not to care that her own state is flooding, the west is burning, and infrastructure around the country is crumbling. Sinema is more interested in gaining GOP friends and blocking much needed resources, than fighting for her residents' future. https://t.co/TfSc0uoY1j pic.twitter.com/nTFC2lizfK— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) July 28, 2021
Nancy Pelosi Also In on the Act
The WSJ reports "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has said she won't bring the infrastructure bill up in the House until the broader $3.5 trillion package has passed the Senate, effectively yoking the two bills' fates together."
