From the border crisis to a failed vaccine rollout, Joe Biden is getting hit at every turn.
His dreams of ramming through radical, left-wing legislation don’t appear to be coming true.
Now Joe Biden is losing on every front and even his own party is against him.
Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema has been making the Democrats, her own party, squirm for a few months.
Sinema has repeatedly stated that she will not support eliminating the filibuster.
The other day she made it official by once again stating not only will she not vote to eliminate the filibuster, she won’t even vote to weaken the 60 vote threshold to end debate and break a filibuster.
Senate Democrats are not too happy with Senator Sinema.
The Arizona Senator announced her opposition to doing away with the filibuster in an op-ed for The Washington Post, which was published the day before Democrats were set to hold a key vote on legislation that would enact a federal takeover of elections.
In the piece, Sinema stated, “The best way to achieve durable, lasting results? Bipartisan cooperation. […] It’s no secret that I oppose eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold. I held the same view during three terms in the U.S. House, and said the same after I was elected to the Senate in 2018. If anyone expected me to reverse my position because my party now controls the Senate, they should know that my approach to legislating in Congress is the same whether in the minority or majority.”
Sinema stopped short of naming those in the Democrat Party who support the filibuster but aren’t saying so because, rightfully so, she feared blowback from the radical left-wing base.
Biden and his cohorts know that many of the key pieces of legislation they promised their base would get through, like gun control, amnesty for illegals, and D.C. statehood, will face a fiery death if they can’t get members of their own party like Sinema onboard.
Of course, Biden, Schumer, and Pelosi always seem to have some trickery up their sleeve, so there is no telling what they may do next.
