Fetterman slams Sinema over infrastructure: ‘Democrats need to vote like Democrats’

Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman (D) on Wednesday publicly criticized Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) for voicing opposition to a $3.5 trillion price tag on a spending package that includes large swaths of President Biden’s jobs and families plan.

“In unprecedented times like these, Democrats need to vote like Democrats,” Fetterman, a U.S. Senate candidate, said in a statement. “We have the majority, we have the presidency, we have the House, we have the Senate – so let’s act like it and finally deliver Biden’s agenda to the American people.”

Fetterman joined a chorus of progressive lawmakers who took shots at Sinema after she condemned the spending bill’s $3.5 trillion price tag while expressing support for starting debate on the budget resolution that lays the ground work for the spending package backed by Democrats.

“I have … made clear that while I will support beginning this process, I do not support a bill that costs $3.5 trillion,” she reportedly said, according to the Arizona Republic.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) also slammed Sinema on Wednesday, with Ocasio-Cortez writing, “Good luck tanking your own party’s investment.”
