Democrats don’t have much to look forward to in the coming years. They lost the House in the 2022 midterms. And, despite holding the Senate, their majority is only by one vote. They actually lost power in the Senate–not through elections–but through the exodus of a key swing vote. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, formerly a liberal Democrat, recently abandoned the party to become an independent.
This puts Democrats’ control over the Senate in question. Sinema is no longer beholden to the left’s radical demands. She is now more likely to side with Republicans, over critical issues. Recently, she blew the whistle on her old party. She explained one of the reasons she left. And its absolutely brutal.
While speaking with GOP lobbyists in Washington D.C., the Democrat-turned-independent senator reportedly said that caucus “lunches were ridiculous… Old dudes are eating Jell-O, everyone is talking about how great they are. I don’t really need to be there for that. That’s an hour and a half twice a week that I can get back.” […]
Sinema explained that rather attend such events with the Democrats, “I spend my days doing productive work, which is why I’ve been able to lead every bipartisan vote that’s happened the last two years.” [Source: Fox News]
Wow. Sinema mocked the Democrat luncheons she was forced to attend twice a week, when she was a Democrat Senator. Apparently, the meetings were nothing more than “old dudes eating Jell-O” and other liberals talking about “how great they are.”
Hmm… sounds about right. We always knew Democrats lived in a bubble in which they were separated from the outside world. They are unaware of what is really going on in America, neglecting major issues and crises. But meanwhile, they pat themselves on the back because they have the “right kind” of politics.
Democrats are nothing but arrogant career politicians full of hot air. Even Sinema, a liberal, got sick of their grandstanding. She no longer caucuses with the party, giving her liberty to vote on bipartisan bills if need be.
Instead of attending those luncheons, she says she uses the time to accomplish “productive work.” Now, if only the rest of the Senate could follow her lead!
The D.C. swamp was shaken up after Sinema ditched the Democrats. Many are wondering if more senators will become brave enough to do the same. Sen. Joe Manchin, a longtime critic of his own party and Joe Biden, could be next.
But will these liberal outcasts be bold enough to join the GOP? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
