There Is Something Seriously Wrong with Her


Apparently, Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) just told Chuck Schumer that her vacation plans for August are set, so if Senate leader tries to extend this session, she will simply leave town

Seriously, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

I get that members of Congress need to get back to their districts regularly, but she's not saying that, it's that she's already booked the plane tickets or some-such.

This is batsh%$ insane:


— Sinema is not letting BIF [reconciliation budget bill] or the reconciliation bill get in the way of her summer plans.

When CHUCK SCHUMER announced
earlier this month that he might keep the Senate in session into August — delaying a previously scheduled recess in order to shepherd the two gigantic bills through the chamber — Sinema told the majority leader that she was not sticking around to vote, multiple Senate sources tell Playbook.

She had prior vacation plans, she said, and wasn’t about to let the infrastructure or reconciliation bills get in the way.

In fairness, Sinema is staying in D.C. this weekend to work instead of attending one previously scheduled event: a wine retreat fundraiser at Sonoma’s ritzy MacArthur Place Hotel & Spa, where summer rates hover around $950 per night. (Wine is kind of Sinema’s thing. Last August, she held a three-week internship at Three Sticks Winery in Sonoma, for which the senator was paid an entry-level salary of $1,117.40.)

I guess that already put down her AirBNB deposit.

I've never seen a member of Congress who is so openly contemptuous of the responsibilities implied by their position.
