Progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused Senator Kyrsten Sinema of putting the interests of "lobbyists over people," touting her higher fundraising haul as evidence of support for the progressive agenda.
Sinema, an Arizona Democrat, has emerged as a key moderate pushing back against President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda.
You don’t have to put corporate lobbyists over people to legislate, fundraise, and win.
The group's tweet compared the third-quarter fundraising hauls of Sinema and Ocasio-Cortez.
"Q3 fundraising totals: AOC: $1,679,781, Kyrsten Sinema: $1,138,017," People for Bernie wrote.
Sinema has suggested she would back a smaller version of the bill, but it remains unclear how Democrats will compromise.
Three-quarters (75 percent) of the Arizona respondents to the poll also said they disapproved of the job Sinema is doing in Congress. »
