During an interview with CNN, Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona did not commit to vote in favor of President Biden’s massive spending proposal, the Build Back Better Act.
The bill passed in the House last month without the backing of any GOP members.
“[Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer has said he wants to vote on Build Back Better, that broader social safety net bill, before Christmas break. Are you prepared to vote yes when that comes to the floor?” CNN’s Lauren Fox asked Sinema.
The lawmaker said that she is “always prepared to vote, and to vote for what’s right for the interests of Arizona.”
