Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, many say, paid lip service to the two voting rights bills on Thursday. Despite co-sponsoring the voting rights bill named in honor of John Lewis, her dead set opposition to changing the filibuster ensures that both bills are going nowhere.

UK inflation hits 40-year high of 9.0%, squeezing households harder

British inflation surged last month to its highest annual rate since 1982, pressuring finance minister Rishi Sunak to offer more help for households and the Bank of England to keep raising interest rates despite a risk of recession. Read more >>

It’s not ironic, it’s nauseating Americans are apparently too apathetic to get out and march, but I bet we can be motivated to stay home for voting rights. GeneralStrikeVotingRights This is such a waste. We need the John Lewis voting act. She is another one that has got to go. In the Caribbean we consistently say talk is cheap, & mostly used for mere convenience really. Most political figures easily can find ways & means to attract attention. This is happening over the last five years in the American political landscape. It's a remedy for attraction.

I’m sure Mr. Lewis spirit is not at peace seeing what she is doing to America voting rights! She call herself a friend to him! These d kind of so called friends u DONT WANT TO HAVE! Republicans r using her to do their dirty work n won’t respect her when they r done with her! White woman's fake tears. Just before she metaphorically chopped off the head of the Potus and took a dump on voter's rights, she lied to the world and said 'John Lewis is my hero.' The chic is sick.

Why are these people so thick headed and evil? It's outrageous Sinema refused to per her hand on a Bible when she was swore in as a Senator but there she is wearing a cross yesterday.

Sinema reiterates opposition to Senate rule change ahead of Biden meeting with DemsBREAKING: Sinema reiterates opposition to Senate rule change ahead of Biden meeting with Dems Sinema reiterated her commitment to end American democracy. Hahaha amazing that Biden calling her Jefferson Davis didn’t convince her And she'll be fund raising on 'Biden didn't do anything!!' in 3..2.....1...

rolandsmartin Malice is not irony A real POS Reality expert: Democrats are laying the foundation for an excuse as to why they’ll be losing the midterms. You dropped this.. 😂🤣🤡🤡🤡 she is one of the worst ever She is being paid. Figure out by who, end of story. She should join the GOP who are known for their hypocrisy. She fits right in…

She's pretty hot tho Catch U Next Tuesday 💁🏼‍♀️ She's disgusting

Sinema, Manchin reject Biden push to change filibuster for voting rightsPres. Biden on future of voting rights legislation: 'As long as I have a breath in me, as long as I'm in the White House, as long as I'm engaged at all, I'm going to be fighting to change the way these legislatures' have moved on the issue. He's a national joke. And knows it. Go Joe! GO Mr. President...we have your 6. DeanObeidallah Empty suit,

Libs: I love how John McCain votes his conscience Also Libs: Why can’t she just follow party lines Follow the money! BIG AIRHEAD WOW I don’t like everything about most bills but for the greatest good let’s pass on laws for the country! Did you not hear anything she said? She hates this one side rule environment , she wants cooperation from both sides. I know that is idealistic thinking in this environment but I respect her ideals

White trying to hang on to control P.O.S. Because the bill is nothing more than a Dem power grab. As your rating continue to tumble, you may want to work on telling the entire truth. VoterIDNow Just because you name something after someone doesn't mean it represents their values. Especially in a more complex context like axeing the filibuster.

Just a friendly reminder that the filibuster, that racist relic of the Jim Crow south…was used a record 327 times by democrats in 2020…what do you expect from the party of slavery tho?

Kyrsten Sinema Dooms Democrats' Voting Rights Push With SpeechThe Arizona senator's speech opposing filibuster changes on Thursday cast a cloud over Democrats' final voting rights push. So, you use an old photo. The cross jewelry was part of the act. Funny how the Democrats were against doing this in 2009 but now they are for it. SenTomCotton was brilliant in reading SenSchumer own speech word for word now against him.

She is the hero in this. She knows it has nothing to do with civil rights. I'm pretty sure it's less ironic than just a straight up lie by somebody who thinks she's the next Joe Lieberman bipartisan super-spoiler.. er.. hero. Privilege white woman blocks historic voting rights bills... Sounds part for the course...

The single gold cross necklace is a little rich coming from her👀🙄 Did not swear on a bible, religiously not affiliated. The theater kid in her is strong! Every state already has their voting laws in place. It’s not the governments job to set and write election laws for independent states. The Feds have no say in elections...all this bill was attempting to do was to subvert the constitution and remove power from the states.

SenatorSinema does an about face and cowers in the background after she sees POTUS speaking to press... VotingRights kyrstensinema No it’s called common sense. Not ironic. I don't get it. Why are they opposed? JoyAnnReid She needs to be cancelled SenateDems SenatorSinema JoyAnnReid Oh and thanks Arizona for electing this corrupt senator.

Kyrsten Sinema Is Living In An Alternate UniverseIn a floor speech defending the filibuster, Sinema described a country and a political system that just doesn’t exist. Living in a dream world doesn’t help with todays realities 🤨 Enema’s just full of shit. So is Man$ion.

JoyAnnReid She's more interested in getting paid from corporate donors and will remain silent when GOP take control and get rid of the filibuster. JoyAnnReid Why is she very openly wearing a cross when she has claimed not to be religious? JoyAnnReid Gag JoyAnnReid Notice she is wearing the long vertical version of the Christian cross which is the KKK version!!!

JoyAnnReid That worked for Senator Susan Collins just reelected. JoyAnnReid If $inema us so in love with bipartisanship and the filibuster let her talk 10 of her GOP comrad's into voting for the VRA. I doubt she will vote for it. JoyAnnReid Afraid JoyAnnReid Don't you get the sense that Sinema and Manchin are really republican plants trained to get into the camp of the enemy... and muck things up? They act like trained operatives. Their training is designed to thwart progress and make this admin look inept.

JoyAnnReid 2020: 328 filibusters by democrats. 2022: 'filibusters are bad and are used by terrorists and racists!' JoyAnnReid SenatorSinema you deserve every bit of heat you get and then some extra.

Martin Luther King III: History will remember Sinema 'unkindly'Martin Luther King III criticized Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for doubling down on her stance on the Senate filibuster: 'History will remember Senator Sinema unkindly.” The Dems are so scared of fair mid-terms. They need those mail-in ballots and no-ID voting. Or the Arizona GOP will erect a statue of her. Kyrsten Sinema IS part of the actions that worsen the underlying disease of division infecting our country! Self-Promoting & Divisive or Rep Operative?!?!

JoyAnnReid Hahahahahahahaha 😂😂😂😂 JoyAnnReid Not a damn word out of her mouth was true. This ine instance of changing the rules IS NOT PERMANENT. She cannot be this stupid, but she can be this corrupt. The DNC needs to cut her and Mancini (his real name) off and primary them both. JoyAnnReid you can almost see the liberal in charge of msnbc's twitter wiping away angry tears as she/he/they type this.

Trump allies have knives out for Sen. Thune as he embarks on re-election bidWithin 48 hours of Sen. Thune announcing his re-election campaign, the American Potential Fund began polling the state's likely GOP voters on potential primary challengers. “For many deceivers went out into the world, those who do not confess Jesus Christ coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.” (2 John 7) Gospel
