Some Democrats may not be happy with the latest news coming out of Senator Sinema’s office.
With her stiff opposition to Biden’s spending plan, Sinema may have more enemies on the left than she does on the right.
Even so, she is adamant she will not change parties, stating that disagreements within the party are “normal.”
The New Normal
While I do not agree with most of her politics, Sinema is not the problem in Washington.
She has always been willing to work with the other side, which is why she has become a problem for Democrats.
For today’s Democrats, there is only one way, the far-left way, or you get roasted.
We saw this when few in the party had issue with Sinema being followed into the ladies’ room by an activist who continued to roll video.
Even with all the pressure and disregard, however, she will not be changing parties.
Sinema, when asked about moving over to the GOP, stated, “No. Why would I do that?”
She later added, “I’ve been concerned at the push that happens in both parties, this push to have no disagreements.
“To only have unity or to only speak with one voice. And some will say, ‘Oh, that is our strength.’
“Having some disagreement is normal. It is real, it is human. And it’s an opportunity for us as mature beings to work through it.”
She also had a rather insightful comment about today’s politicians, stating, “You’re either honest or you’re not honest. So just tell the truth and be honest and deliver that which you can deliver.
“There’s this growing trend of people in both political parties who promise things that cannot be delivered in order to get the short-term political gain.
“And I believe that it damages the long-term health of our democracy.”
Honestly, I am glad she has no desire to come over the Republican Party because I believe she is far more use to conservatives as a Democrat.
If we can have just a few reasonable Democrats in Congress, perhaps there is hope for this country once Republicans take Congress back.
It is unlikely Republicans will have a supermajority in the Senate, but a few Democrats that have no fear of crossing the aisle is almost as good.
