The senate will not be voting on Biden’s $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill any time soon since Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema has left Washington for the weekend.
Democrats have control of the both chambers of Congress and the White House yet they still can’t pass Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill through reconciliation.
Joe Biden doesn’t even need Republicans to pass this bill and he’s still failing.
Sinema took off and Joe Biden is MIA.
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema left DC earlier today, two sources tell NBC News.

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) is also giving Biden hell and refusing to sign on to the $3.5 trillion price tag.
There is nothing on Joe Biden’s public schedule for today or this weekend.
On Thursday a reporter asked Psaki if Biden was willing to stay in DC all weekend to work on the two ‘infrastructure’ bills stalled in Congress and as usual she defended her boss with a nonsensical answer.
“Uh, we’re open. He’s available. He’s been making calls this morning. He’s open to having visitors. He’s open to going places,” Psaki said.
Separately in the House, Speaker Pelosi was forced to delay a vote on the $1.2 trillion ‘bipartisan’ infrastructure bill Thursday evening.
The progressives derailed Pelosi’s planned vote because they want to vote on the $1.2 trillion bill at the same time the senate votes on the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
It is unlikely the House will hold a vote today on infrastructure so Biden is just failing all around.
