All eyes are on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) as the vote for President Biden’s infrastructure bill falls on Thursday. Sinema met with Biden several times this week. Remarkably, she met with the president three times on Tuesday alone. However, she is still against a bill that costs as much as $3.5 trillion. Meanwhile rumors sprang that she was actually for it.
“Senator Sinema said publicly more than two months ago, before Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, that she would not support a bill costing $3.5 trillion,” the statement read. “Claims that the Senator has not detailed her views to President Biden and Senator Schumer are false. Like our bipartisan infrastructure bill, the proposed budget reconciliation package reflects a proposal of President Biden’s–and President Biden and his team, along with Senator Schumer and his team, are fully aware of Senator Sinema’s priorities, concerns, and ideas.”
Yet the Arizona senator is not posturing publicly for the media, like many of her Democratic counterparts have.
“While we do not negotiate through the press–because Senator Sinema respects the integrity of those direct negotiations,” the statement went on. “She continues to engage directly in good-faith discussions with both President Biden and Senator Schumer to find common ground.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki agreed, refusing to detail negotiations publicly Wednesday. But, she did go as far to say that it seems that Sinema would like a bill to ultimately pass. In addition, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has voiced his opposition to the bill.

Gallup poll: GOP holds large advantage over Dems in economy, national security
A recent Gallup poll shows Americans overwhelmingly have faith in Republicans over Democrats when it comes to the economy. In fact, the GOP “holists largest advantage on the economy in over 30 years, with 53% of Americans trusting Republicans more than Democrats on the issue” writes the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The poll holds Republicans at a 14-point lead over Democrats for handling the economy better. “The GOP scored 10 points higher on the economy than last year, marking the largest margin between the two parties since 1991.”
Gallup’s publication of the poll is titled ‘Neither Party Well-Liked, but GOP Holds Advantage on Issues.’ It may not be a shock that “The two major political parties remain unpopular in the U.S., with 56% of Americans viewing the Republican Party unfavorably and 58% saying the same of the Democratic Party” but the GOP holds “historically ample leads.”

“Fifty-three percent of Americans believe the Republican Party will do a better job of keeping the country prosperous over the next few years, whereas 39% choose the Democratic Party.”
“A slightly larger majority, 57%, have greater faith in the Republican Party to protect the country from international terrorism and military threats, while 35% favor the Democrats.”
