Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) on Friday enthusiastically voted NO on a $15 minimum wage hike.
A total of 8 Democrat Senators defected on the minimum wage increase but leftists attacked Sinema for her enthusiastic thumbs down vote on the Senate floor.

Sinema channeled John McCain and did a thumbs down vote on the senate floor.
The Senate stripped the minimum wage hike from the Covid bill, but a group of far left lawmakers led by Socialist Bernie Sanders forced a separate vote on the policy.
The vote was held on Friday and 8 Democrat Senators defected.
With a 42-58 vote against the wage hike, it shows the Democrats are at odds within their own caucus and can’t even pass the provision with a simple majority vote.
Leftists went berserk and harassed Senator Sinema.
Some leftists requested $15 from her on Venmo to make a point. All were declined and Sinema was forced to make her account private.
The left-wing bluecheck mafia was triggered by Sinema’s “John McCain” thumbs down vote.
