Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), one of two Democratic senators delaying passage of the Build Back Better agenda, left DC for the weekend.
Jonathan Allen of NBC News tweeted:
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema left DC earlier today, two sources told NBC News.

The fact that Sinema doesn’t bother to stay in DC and do her job should be noticed and remembered by all Democratic voters in Arizona. Unlike Senator Manchin, Sinema is not participating in negotiations to reach an agreement so that the infrastructure bills, which are the backbone of President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, can pass.
Some Democrats are already staging a major challenge for the 2024 election campaign.
As Ari Berman pointed out, it is wrong for two senators representing 2.8% of the American population to be able to uphold widely popular legislation:
2 Senators who make up 2.8% of the US population should not be able to block alone policies backed by 65% of Americans and 96% of Congressional Democrats

Senator Sinema is winning a Democratic primary candidate by showing that she doesn’t take her job and her duties to the people of Arizona seriously.
Two senators are delaying infrastructure bills. You are showing that you are willing to negotiate and find a deal. The other has left DC and is proving that she does not belong to the Senate.
