Kyrsten Sinema Sets the ‘Build Back Better’ Agenda on Fire and Infuriates the Left – RedState

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema may be ignoring phone calls from the White House, but she’s also blowing things up on Capitol Hill, as well.

It’s well known that the Arizona senator does not support the $3.5 trillion “build back better” reconciliation bill, but where she and Joe Manchin, who is also holding the line from the moderate side, supposedly differed was on climate policy. Sinema seemed to care more about taxes, while Manchin opposed any measures that could harm the West Virginia coal industry.

But now, Sinema is making a move that hits right at the heart of the “green” agenda pushed by Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among many others on the left.

This is from The New York Times.

According to two sources, Senator Kyrsten Silena, an Arizona senator who started her career in politics with the Green Party, and has expressed alarm about the rising temperature, she wants to reduce climate program spending by at least $100 Billion. This is according to major legislation that is pending on Capitol Hill.

Sinema is one of two centrist Democrats in the Senate whose votes are crucial to passing two bills that together would comprise President Biden’s legislative agenda: a $1 trillion infrastructure bill and a separate $3.5 trillion budget bill.

This is the most severe barrage in the Democrat civil War over reconciliation. Sanders talks a big game and Biden doesn’t know what day it is, but Sinema is out here blowing up the biggest priority for her party without a second thought. I’m pretty sure that makes her the most based politician in Washington right now.

Maybe Sinema’s Democrat colleagues, including Sanders and Biden, not coming out to forcefully defend her from being accosted by illegal immigrants in a bathroom wasn’t the smartest tactical move? But arrogance is a funny thing, and there’s no shortage of it among far-left political figures. Sinema appears to be further distanced by her arrogance.

Beyond the political issues, Sinema’s actions are simply right. The last thing this nation needs to use yet more finite taxpayer money on “green” energy boondoggles and carbon punishment schemes that stunt economic growth while making no real difference. We’ve got enough issues to worry about, and no amount of “action” in Washington regarding the United States is going to change the climate.

Realities and practicalities are still important, even though you may believe man-made climate change is a significant issue. Even though the US could reduce its carbon emissions by zero, it would still be insignificant. That’s not according to me. That’s per climate hysteric John Kerry.

If the social media response is any indication, Sinema’s move is infuriating the left. For these folks, the climate crisis is an institution of religion. These people believe that they are the savers of the planet and only need money to redeem themselves. On Sunday, you can look forward to some sensational takes.
