Why can't Tom Steyer (a billionaire who ran on climate as his #1 issue)

make it worth Sinema’s while to vote for a bill (Build Back Better) that’s BIG on climate change, an issue she also claims is so important to her….Then she wouldn’t have to have her fundraisers with donors opposed to the Build Back Better bill and do their bidding.

1. I don't think you'll like hearing this but...

…sometimes politicians actually believe in what they stand for, and donors give money to them because they do.

Even if you weee right, Stryker could only give $5400, the same amount I could give.

2. If Sinema really believed in what she says she would vote for the

3. That's my point.

She’s very conflicted, so give her the opportunity to truly vote as she claims are her interests….

4. She is not really conflicted, we are. She is in it for the money.

I doubt she cares whether she gets re-elected, she is likely setting up her next job.

5. That someone could be so selfish and short-sighted

is really horrific. That would be akin to GOP type behavior…..

11. More the money she will make when she leaves the senate

with her new connections. Scratching backs.

6. Well, could the reason he won't "make it worth her time"

be because that would require both of them to commit felonies?

7. I'm certainly not suggesting anyone commit a felony....

How is it that Michael Bloomberg could pledge 10s of millions in the 2020 race?

Just poking at you; I know what you’re saying.
