Sinema rakes in Pharma and finance cash amid reconciliation negotiations

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Spazito (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Politico

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) raised more campaign money in the last three months than in any quarter since she became a senator. And she hit that $1.1 million haul with a big assist from the pharmaceutical and financial industries, whose political action committees and top executives stuffed her coffers in the middle of negotiations on Democrats’ massive infrastructure and social spending bills.

Sinema has emerged as a key player in those negotiations, with the reconciliation bill needing support from all 50 Democratic senators. But Sinema and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) have made it clear they will not support the original $3.5 trillion price tag for the bill, and Sinema has also objected to including far-reaching prescription drug pricing proposals, certain proposed tax increases and other party priorities.

As those objections have been registered, Sinema’s Senate campaign has cashed checks from industries facing potential losses or other disruptions. She received $27,800 from PACs of pharmaceutical companies from July through September — up from $5,000 in the three months prior, according to her campaign finance filings.

Sinema’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

they get one on the hook they concentrate funds on them, just takes a couple to fuck up the whole political agenda. As long as politicians can be bought off we do not have anything close to a democracy.

lying double-dealing snakes have always been among us. And people just keep believing their lies and voting them in. Yet both come from red states, what can be expected?
