We keep forgetting that the Pride of Arizona, Sen. Kirsten Sinema (D-allegedly) is still gumming up the works:
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) is doubling down on her support for the 60-vote legislative filibuster, throwing a wrench into a frantic, last-ditch effort to get a deal to change the Senate’s rules before the end of the year…
But while Sinema is making it clear that she supports voting and election reform bills that have been blocked by GOP senators, she is also standing by her support for keeping the 60-vote legislative filibuster and warning against a carve-out from the rule for voting rights.
Because it is more important to Sinema that her debate club survives than democracy, I guess? Anyway, Sinema is blocking the so-called “nuclear option” to change the rules with a simple majority if the Dems had total unity in the conference (instead of cats) and Vice President Harris to break a tie.
It might be easier to get a Republican at this point.
