With Afghanistan dominating the headlines as of late, we cannot forget that Democrats are about to try to ram through a massive spending bill.
This could be tough, however, as Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) was more than happy to explain to Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
Zeldin believes the Republicans are completely united on this and if Schumer cannot get Senators Manchin (D-W.V.) and Sinema (D-AZ) to cave, reconciliation will die on the Senate floor.
The big question right now is if both Sinema and Manchin will cave.
Manchin did a big op-ed last week telling Dems to hit the brakes on the big spending bill.
However, just a few days later, he came out and said that he would not go for anything over $1.5 trillion in additional spending.
My money is and always has been on Manchin caving at some point.
He always seems to put up a strong front, then he eventually gives in to Dem pressure.
Even if Manchin caves, there is still Sinema, who has avoided the spotlight to this point, but that will change if Manchin gives in after meeting with Joe Biden.
We only need one to hold the line, a point made by Rep. Zeldin…
What do you guys think? Will both Dems cave to pressure or will at least one of them hold up?
