The majority of Senate Democrats are banding together to circumvent the chamber’s stringent rules for preventing a filibuster on their $700 billion-plus climate, tax, and health care measure. Kyrsten Sinema’s future remains uncertain.
According to her spokesman, the Arizona Democrat has not commented on the proposed legislation and is not anticipated to do so until she has read the measure’s text and the Senate parliamentarian’s rulings. Her timetable for making a decision is now unclear, since the package might arrive on the floor as early as the middle of next week.
In the past, Sinema has supported party-line legislation to combat climate change, and last year, she reached an agreement with Democrats to reduce the price of prescription medications. She has, however, also fought against closing the so-called carried interest loophole, which now permits some financial corporations to pay reduced tax rates on their earnings.
The majority of caucus members, many of whom learned about the agreement through Sen. Joe Manchin’s press release, were startled by the agreement between Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), announced Wednesday. Senate Democrats are still confident that they will ultimately have all 50 senators, including Sinema.
