Five Sinema Staffers Resign Over Opposition to Spending Bill

The problems continue for Senator Sinema (D-AZ).

According to multiple reports, five members of her staff have resigned.

Their reason… her resistance to the massive spending bill that Democrats want to force through Congress via reconciliation.

You Are a Danger

When working for a Senator, especially one of the more prominent moderates in the party, one would think the entire staff would be on the same page.

That does not appear to be the case for Sinema.

Being one of two Democrats not willing to go for a $3.5 trillion price tag, she has been targeted by everyone, and now that would include her own staff.

Five members of her Veterans Advisory Council, in their resignation, stated, “You have become one of the principal obstacles to progress, answering to big donors rather than your own people.

“We shouldn’t have to buy representation from you, and your failure to stand by your people and see their urgent needs is alarming.

“As members of your Veterans Advisory Council for years, we’re deeply concerned by your failure to acknowledge us or seek our input.

“Today, we feel as though we are merely given performative titles and used as window dressing for your own image — not as resources to provide counsel on what’s best for veterans. Given your complete disregard for our input and your unwillingness to act on behalf of your constituents’ needs, we respectfully resign from your Veterans Advisory Council.”

Sinema’s office responded, “We appreciate their diverse views, contributions to legislation, and participation in veteran outreach events.

“While it is unfortunate that apparent disagreement on separate policy issues has led to this decision, I thank them for their service and will continue working every day to deliver for Arizona’s veterans who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe and secure.”

Even though this is a blow to her personally, this could have easily made her cave, but she continues to stand firm, for now.

She will not be a complete holdout, just like Manchin, so all we can hope at this point is that their sticking points are enough to prevent progressives from getting on board and the bill ultimately fails.

    1. She is doing what IS best for veterans as most are on a fixed income. If this outrageous bill would go through all vets and every single person will pay 20 to 40 percent more for everything. The people pay for corporate taxes not corporations. The corporations just raise their prices and they maintain their profit margins.

    2. You are a hero for American citizens, Sinema. I have to wonder if these people who have left you are being bribed buy a rich Democrat, or are they really that ignorant of the issues in that harmful bill, or are they ignorant concerning the American economy and its effects on working citizens, or both. Billionaires who hate America will pay generously to watch our country fail. Someone as corrupt as Soros probably paid these people to walk out on you. Stand strong. Don’t let the self centered psychos in your Party push you to turn your back on us, please.We need honest politicians who care about Americans in the Democratic Party because there are very many of you left.

    1. Agree Steven. Our Country comes first which should preclude Dems, even her staff from throwing money away in “pork” money that benefits a very small portion of our citizens.

  1. So did these five staffers find another senator to go to work for? Were they pressured into this? were they expecting Sinema to cave to their demands? They were sadly disappointed if they did this as a way to pressure her. As a veteran. I support Sen. Sinema’s decision.

  2. Google always blocks what is said. Where is free speech? She sees there was more in this bill than veterans and that is why she is standing back. May she continue to be strong. Our nation needs more people that can read the bill, think what is best for “we the people” and stand for the good.

  3. As a 30 year active duty USAF veteran, I have to wonder where Senator Sinema found those
    five characters.
    I am sure she can easily replace them with vets not inclined to be news hog Prima Dona types.

    1. Thank you for your service, Mr. Mumma. If not for your dedication, Americans would not enjoy freedom. Thank you sir. I also support Ms. Sinema even though I don’t live in her state, nor am I a democrat. She has a good head on her shoulders and a brain. Looks like she was able to get rid of the trash that was trying to intimidate her. Good for her standing her ground. I understand the people who were attacking her in a restroom are probably going to jail.

  4. Sinema is a very strong young lady. Even if she was a Republican she would take the same stance. She was elected to represent what she and her constituents think is best for “all”. Based on the comments they act like they are the decision-makers.
    Thank you for standing up and holding your ground. This is a lousy time to put politics on the table. If God wanted us all to think the same he would have given us all the same brain!
    As a disabled Veteran, I applaud your stance and respect for those that have served our country.

    1. It appears that these five employees think they should dictate to Sen. Sinema what her decisions must be. They may express their opinion. But, the final decision still belongs to their boss. They failed to comprehend that fact.

  5. Keep hold, stay strong, Sinema. Your staffers were not worth their paychecks. The veterans deserve for you to stand for them. We all respect you more for it. The staffers have been promised something from someone that will tide them over. But YOU, you in two years will not remember any of their names. But the entire country will remember you as a woman with guts. God bless you for being a true American. We need more like you.

  6. Stay strong and stay the course. those that resigned are all traitors and need to be jailed.

  7. Love a woman with principle I am a Latino DEMOCRAT but she is the kind of democrat that we love and VIVA TRUMP

  8. You don’t need those crybaby traitors. Now you can hire people who genuinely agree with you. It’s a win,win situation for the great Senator from Arizona.
    Stand your ground. There’s enough dem minions trying to destroy our country.

  9. You know they were. Bought off by the left. They showed their True Colors n not a real Team Member. Disgusting People can be bought off or just COWARDS!

  10. From the comments it becomes clear those who are leaving succumbed to party pressure and are not worthy of being a part of her staff! They lack the fortitude and integrity to support their senator they chose to work for!

  11. Thank God for reps like her. She is doing what she
    Was elected to do and those who voted for her
    Will keep electing her.
    She stands for the country and freedom. God bless

  12. All the statements here are right on and I agree with everyone of you and it’s a good thing Christian Cinema is taking out the trash time to clean house and replace the garbage

  13. Good for you Senator Sinema. You have been here for our State of Arizona. You need to have staffers that think like you do & most of the people in our great State. I am not even a Democrat but will always vote & stand with you.

  14. Very proud of Ms.Sinema! Please stay the course, stick to your convictions and do not support this horrible bill!

  15. Five potentual saboteur running away, this is good.
    Ms. Sinema, keep up the good fight, and hang in there!

  16. “We shouldn’t have to buy representation from you”
    Ironic that these staffer use the obvious as their argument.
    DC’s whole economy is based on buying representation!
    If they don’t like the bosses decisions the best thing they can do is resign.
