Kyrsten Sinema, probably best known to most for her wardrobe than her legislating, flipped rhino Jeff Flake's former Senate seat last election to the dems. But the dems 'Our Lady of the Fierce Outfits' is coming under fire for her voting record. Dan O'Neal, leader in the Progressive Caucus says there is a move afoot to censure, and explained the sudden buyer's remorse. O’Neal, says that the move to censure Sinema is intended to push her to the left.
"We really support Kyrsten Sinema, we want her to succeed, we want her to be the best senator in the country. But the way she is voting is really disappointing. We want Democrats to vote like Democrats and not Republicans."FiveThirtyEight confirms that Sinema votes with Trump 54.5 percent of the time, which they see as far superior to Jeff Flake and Boobs McCain's daddy. They both supported Trump more than 80 percent of the time, but they were "deeply concerned" about it.
Sinema hasn't even been in office a year yet and the afterglow is showing signs of dimming even though 'Our Lady of the Fierce Outfits' has consistently opposed Trump on critical issues. The Progressive Caucus specifically calls out Sinema's vote to confirm William Barr as Attorney General. Barr was confirmed on a nine-vote margin.
Sinema also rasied the cockles of the Progtards as the only Democrat not to support the power grab 'Save the Internet Act', but that's not because she hates YouTube. She just believes there are better ways to regulate the Internet, so I guess that make her a Trump stooge. She also voted to confirm fossil fuel proponent David Bernhardt who wants to drill in your backyard and kill all the polar bears, as Secretary of the Interior. Maybe Sinema believes a president gets to pick their Cabinet, and she'll do her given job of 'advisein' and 'consentin'.
The Arizona Republican Party censured Boobs McCain's daddy in 2014 for his "liberal" record and that only helped his carefully cultivated image as a principled maverick. In this case Progressives forget that she represents Arizona, not la la land California and it's not a Blue State. Progs seem always ready to eat their own and ever anxious to overplay their hand. Just peruse Daily Kos and see how the keyboard commandos are always riled up that Democrat politicians are not able to assume godlike powers and push DJT and his minions right out of power, and hoping for unicorn candidates and rainbow ice cream poop right now.
