Senate Democrats Reach Deal with Kyrsten Sinema

“Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) said she would ‘move forward’ on a revised version of Senate Democrats’ health care, climate and deficit-reduction package, after party leaders agreed to scale back some of their original tax proposals,” the Washington Post reports.

Said Sinema: “We have agreed to remove the carried interest tax provision, protect advanced manufacturing, and boost our clean energy economy in the Senate’s budget reconciliation legislation.”

New York Times: “It brought Democrats one step closer to enacting the package and salvaging key pieces of their domestic agenda, beginning with a series of votes this weekend.”

“The measure needs the unanimous support of Democrats to move forward in the 50-50 Senate, so the party cannot afford even one defection.”
