"Going to be a very impactful system from coast to coast. And shake up in the Senate, Arizona senator kyrsten sinema is changing her party from Democrat to independent. Fellow independent Vermont senator Bernie Sanders spoke on CNN.

"For investors in the coming week, shifting political sense for Democrats even after their big Senate win in Georgia. The war let's head to our Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington and any Morris. Amy. All right, thank you, John. We're coming off a wild week politically with the democratic win in Georgia followed by Arizona senator kyrsten sinema's defection from the Democratic Party. She's now registered as an independent. We got a lot of questions about what might happen next. Even just in the next few weeks. Joining me now to talk about this, Bloomberg Capitol Hill reporter Steven Dennis, Steven, thanks for taking the time. Great to be here. Okay, senator sinema has always been a bit of a mag break. She didn't always tow the Democratic Party line. Why is she doing this now? Yes. So if you look at the polls, all the polls this year of her standing in Arizona have been terrible with Democrats. There was a poll way back in January showing her getting blown out by representative Ruben gallego in a hypothetical primary contest, 74 to 16. Then there was a poll right before the midterm elections by civics that had her at 7% approval among democratic voters. That she basically, if she tried to run for reelection as a Democrat, she was going to get primaried and she was going to lose that primary. This might be the only chance for her to try to win reelection is to try to appeal to independent voters, which is a growing election block. And to some Republicans in the moderate Democrats, but it's going to be an uphill fight for her. And really, this complicates the democratic efforts to keep their majority because if she creates a three way race and splits the democratic vote, that could make it a lot easier for a Republican candidate maybe carry Lake or somebody else. To win that Senate seat in Arizona for the Republicans. So in the short term, it doesn't really change much for the Democrats on Capitol Hill, at least in the Senate. They still have a slim majority, but it is their majority, but that's only in the short term. What you're looking forward to is what, 2024, and how she's positioning herself there? Exactly. And I think that's what this decision was about was to try to expand her appeal in Arizona to independent voters and to just sort of clear the decks where she's not constantly being asked about her standing among democratic primary voters. Slammed her immediately afterwards with a statement for abandoning the Democratic Party and hinted that he's going to run so it's kind of creates a bit of a mess for Democrats with their political strategy for 2024. It's a key presidential primary state as well. But she did talk to Chuck Schumer, the Senate majority leader. She is going to stick with Democrats as far as controlling their control of committees. Their ability to subpoena corporations, which is something that Schumer has highlighted. And so they'll still technically sort of have a 51 49 majority. For all practical purposes, it doesn't really change how Washington is going to work the next year or two. But it does change that democratic political strategy as they try to keep the Senate majority in 2024, which is already looking very tough because that Senate map is much, much more difficult for them than it was just a few weeks ago. One more question for you, Dennis before we let you go. Her strategy for the next couple of years. She said she was not going to caucus with Republicans, but she didn't specifically say she was going to caucus with Democrats, but doesn't she have to if she wants to keep her committee assignments? Does that change? Yeah, no. So basically, she's keeping her committee assignments from the facto perspective. She's caucusing with Democrats and giving them control of committees. The past for her to win reelection is to keep in the center of American politics and get more things done by bridging the gap between the parties and certainly we've got a lot of messy stuff happening next year, debt limit all kinds of other things. I suspect she's going to be in the thick of things, all of that the next two years. All right, thank you so much for taking the time with us. It's great to be here. Bloomberg Capitol Hill reporter, Stephen Dennis with what happens next. Now that senator kyrsten sinema of Arizona has left the Democratic Party, she is an independent, and we've been watching the national and political implications of the democratic victory in Georgia. It is my honor to honor the four most powerful words ever spoken in a democracy. The people have spoken. All right, and that was democratic senator Raphael Warnock of Georgia during his victory speech after winning the runoff election in Georgia this past week. During his concession speech, Republican Herschel Walker encouraged his supporters to remain engaged in the political process. Well, winners and I want to say God is a good God. God bless you guys and let me say stay together continue to believe in our elected official always always cash your votes no matter whatever's happening. Cash your vote. And joining me now to talk about all of this Bloomberg national political reporter Christian hall and Christian, it's important to note you were there in Georgia as all of this was happening.

"Senate and Arizona senator kyrsten sinema's decision to leave the Democratic Party. Registering as an independent and showing up to work with the title of independent is a reflection of who I've always been. That was cinema announcing today in a social media post along with various interviews that she is registering as an independent. Joining us live from Capitol Hill WTO's Mitchell Miller Mitch, this must have been a shocker. It was to many people, but also not so surprising to some of her democratic colleagues. The bottom line for all of this is that senator sinema's party change isn't likely to change a lot of those close votes and Democrats will effectively maintain that 51 to 49 margin, while cinema and West Virginia senator Joe Manchin have received a lot of attention in that 50 50 Senate for leveraging their centrist positions. The extra vote Democrats now have will make a difference and also send them a votes with Democrats the vast majority of the time about 90% Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer issued a statement today saying that cinema will retain her committee assignments and sinema has said she won't caucus with Republicans, which of course would make a big difference. Also keep in mind there's already two independents Vermont senator Bernie Sanders and Maine's Angus king still, it's an interesting political evolution for cinema. She was originally a member of the Green Party early in her political career. Mitch, what about the reaction from other lawmakers to this announcement? Well, Senate Democrats say they're not that surprised by the announcement since cinema has always had an independent streak. And she doesn't attend a lot of the democratic caucus meetings, but somehow Democrats aren't very happy with the decision. One of them is a potential political rival in 2024 if cinema decides to run for reelection, and that is Arizona, congressman Ruben gallego, he's often been at odds with cinema. He issued a statement today and saying that cinema has put her own interests ahead of the people in Arizona. Sinema, if she does run again, is likely counting on getting more centrist Democrats and potentially moderate Republicans to support her in a state that, as you'll recall, was once strongly supportive of political maverick senator John McCain of the GOP. Hey, as we look ahead to 2020, there are a lot of folks who figure the Democrats are going to have a pretty tough political playing field to hold on to power in the Senate Mitch. That is certainly the case Hillary, Democrats are going to have a lot of challenges two years from now. Maybe that's why Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer was so giddy after Georgia senator Raphael Warnock's runoff win this week. 23 democratic seats will be up for reelection in 2024. That's compared to only ten for Republicans. Maryland democratic senator Ben cardin holds a safe seat, but he hasn't indicated if he'll run again. Among those in battleground straits are the aforementioned senator Manchin in West Virginia, where voters strongly supported former president Trump in 2020, Ohio senator sherrod Brown will likely have a tough battle ahead in the state that's overall very red. And of course, we'll have to see what happens in Arizona with senator sinema, potentially getting a challenge in the general election. If she runs again. All right, Mitch, thanks much. You bet. That's double DT OP's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. Three 13. Don't wait. Get ready for the holidays now during court furniture outlets year in clearance of that. Where everything is on sale at their lowest

"BWI Marshall coming in at 91 and 89° at dulles airport feels like it's 98 here in Washington. 1141, a bill that Democrats are calling the inflation reduction act could be close to getting a vote after months of negotiations. But moderate democratic senator kyrsten sinema hasn't yet promised her support and could torpedo this legislation. Joining us live now from Capitol Hill with the latest is CBS congressional correspondent Scott McFarland. Scott, you've been reporting that senator sinema is pushing back on a tax provision in the Bill. What does she object to with this? Well, there's a tax provision that could impact investment funds, which is obviously some arcane material, but it involves a lot of money and ultimately these bills are about money. How to generate it and then how to spend it. This bill, they call it the inflation reduction act of the protest of Republicans. They say it in part because it's going to pay down the debt. They're generating money through new taxes, including corporate taxes, and taking that money to pay down the whole king federal budget deficit in addition to spending money on health insurance subsidies, prescription drug programs, climate change initiatives. But the bottom line is this, there's 50 senators that will support this and they need all 50 to line up. So senator sinema to a degree has a veto car, just like senator Manchin, would have. But senator Manchin says he's on board and the plane will land he tells me today they will get this thing passed as soon as they can lock down that final vote from senator sinema. Sinema also seems to be pushing for more money for drought relief or our Democrats open to boosting that spending. Ultimately, she has leverage. Because they need all 50 votes. If there's a provision she wants added, she has the right timing and the right vote to do so. They've said this is negotiable. They said that there are things that we can still adjust, but they do have together votes lined up seemingly. And some of this comes down to what the Senate parliamentarian allows it. They're using this obscure process that we know here inside the beltway as reconciliation, which allows things to pass the Senate with that smaller threshold, just 50 votes instead of the normal 60. But to get things through reconciliation, the Senate parliamentarian has to approve its inclusion, we'll see what she allows included from all of these negotiations. I'm wondering if any of these changes that they're negotiating now could put the bill in jeopardy with senator Manchin or with progressives in the house when it heads over there. And it's got to get back through the house too. It's another needle that needs to be threaded marked exactly. And there's a very narrow margin in the house, not quite as narrow, but pretty close. And everything you add on one side makes it more difficult to get the votes on the other side. This is the procedure that so many of us who've lived and worked here for generations are kind of accustomed to seeing, but try to walk outside of our area and explain to voters. What this is all about. And their eyes are going to glaze over. But this is important for the Democrats and for the Biden administration. This is a win for them if they can get it passed with less than a hundred days before the midterms were every win could count. All right, Scott, we'll be watching. Thanks so much.

"One 51 About week it's been for president Joe Biden his COVID vaccine mandate for large companies knocked down this week by the Supreme Court and his efforts to pass voting rights legislation appear to be sunk by two democratic senators This morning we turned to national journal editor in chief Jeff dufour for his take They said the ocean mandate for workplaces was overly broad and affected workers outside the workplace as much as in but they said for the military this is fine the mandate that is and for healthcare workers Now that's not really going to pass muster as far as the president's concerned The president is concerned with trying to get down the COVID rates and trying to stem this tide of and this was a tool he was hoping to have in his pocket but he really hasn't had a chance to implement it at all because it was enjoined almost from the moment it started And now he's not going to get this at all So this is a bit of a hit for him on COVID although he's announced that they've got about a billion free tests going out As soon as they can get them made and shipped But yeah this is a big problem for him on COVID and not something he was looking forward to Democratic senators kyrsten sinema and Joe Manchin doubled down on their opposition to changing the Senate filibuster we did learn they finished a meeting with the president at The White House so more talking will have to see if anything comes from that But as far as we can tell at this point is this the end of effort to pass a voting rights bill It sure seems like it I mean on the hill Biden himself even said I don't know if we'll get it done Quote unquote which is quite an admission for him It just shows how little juice Biden has right now You know he had a quinnipiac that showed him with 33% approval So he's politically really damaged right now and he's got so little juice that cinema didn't even wait for him to come up and finish his presentation to the caucus before she essentially through cold water on the whole thing saying she's not going to be the one to weaken the filibuster not on her watch Although I don't think this should have surprised anyone Cinema has been saying a version of this for months that she wouldn't weaken the filibuster partly because she's concerned that Democrats will be in the minority a year from now and it's going to be used against them She just said it a little bit more officially and with a little more pomp and circumstance as she had in the past We used to joke during the Trump years that each week seemed like the worst week of president could have and then the whole thing would happen again the next week But this is the first week for Biden that it's really felt like that where it's just been a snowball of bad news But Jeff you know we've also learned the January 6 House committee of subpoenaed Google and Facebook and Twitter Reddit as it continues its investigation and we're watching the panel go back and forth barring with House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy what would it mean if he ends up being held in contempt That would be a big big development but where a few steps away from there the other thing that was interesting about that is Adam kinzinger one of the two Republicans on the panel said on a podcast that they're going to hold prime time hearings for some of this When everyone's watching to get out the information they have and he promises that it's going to be big The story they're going to tell he says is going to be something that's going to sink into the national consciousness.

The Democrat 'Process' Unleashes on Senator Kyrsten Sinema

"Senator. Kirsten cinema was teaching a class at arizona. State university and was targeted by a couple of students are activists and was accosted and ended up being that the people costing her again. I don't understand why these people post these videos. Same with the first one of the racist and the biggest that were not held accountable by the state university administration by the way a lot of conservatives think. Asu is this wonderful place. Arizona state university is a radical university devoid of wisdom devoid of principle. And if you want your children to hate the country send them to arizona state university. It's not to say that everyone does my good friend. Scott has one of his kids that go to arizona state university. And i think i hope it works out. Well i'm just saying arizona state university and there's some very nasty people that are produced from arizona state university but so these and we also have a great turning point. Usa chapter there. But you start to see these videos of these activists that actually post these videos you think if you commit a felony. Do you still post a video in their activist. Training one one where they learn how to burn down wendy's and you know target white people do they not say. Hey if you commit a felony do not delete the video will. It is a felony to go into the bathroom and record somebody. You are not allowed to do that. You're not allowed to film inside of a bathroom. They did anyway. So these are illegals. That should have been deported. Obviously they shouldn't be in our country the motto they're dreamers wonderful people. Yeah right now. Go into the restroom. Break the law and record cureton cinema.

"There's another interesting lear. we have to talk about. You mentioned it earlier that it's not just you know. How much is she willing to advance. Her party's agenda but also the state that she represents And so it's gotta be part of her current political calculus to two way what the cost would be if she just wholeheartedly said well. Let's abolish the filibuster. I mean how would that go over in arizona. You know i. I don't know that that's an interesting question. Because i think that you know this is a state that continues to evolve. What we do know is that when she wanted twenty eighteen for example she won by two point. Three percentage points And it was the first time that a democrat won they the senate race in arizona in thirty years. When you look at marquel who is her counterpart in the senate from arizona. He won by two point. Three percentage points and of course everybody remembers the joe biden won arizona last year but it was by zero point. Three percentage point. What you've got a what seems to be in some ways. A recent track record of great success for democrats in this state and that is something that emboldened folks on the left here to feel like they can they can win and they can get what they want seemingly but at the same time the state legislature got more conservative The night she was elected to the senate the gubernatorial democratic candidate was wiped out by double digit and so there is relatively narrow path that has been shown to work in this state. But it's unclear as to just how far you can take it in the near term. I think that's part of what is is guiding her liberation on these issues. Yeah so adam. You used to work for harry reid From that area of the country. I genuinely want to know what you think. About what good would it do. The democrats if kirstin cinema for example decided to pivot. And say we're gonna do that. Fifteen dollar minimum wage. We're going to abolish the filibuster. I'm going to fully embrace the you know the progressive Desires desires of the party. And then she gets voted out by arizona voters. I mean this has to be part of the the larger calculus here. It certainly does and i you know. I want to be realistic about the political realities that she faces. And what you have to do to win in arizona but but even by that metric. It's she is farther to the right then Many other senators who come from even redder states. You know I would point to someone like john tester from montana which trump won by sixteen points Who hasn't been an ardent advocate filibuster reform but his shown a very clear openness to it on a number of occasions in his taken a position of you know. I don't wanna do it. I'm not rushing to do it but if it becomes necessary i'm willing to consider reform and so you know that's a senator who represents a state trump won by sixteen points and cinema represents a state that biden one albeit narrowly. So she's putting herself even further to the right than other senators who have much harder political realities back home Senator reid yo came from nevada which has been blue in the last few elections but is still swing state His philosophy and frankly the way he won his last reelection race in two twenty. Ten was that you have to sort of dance with the folks that brung ya and you know. He committed to the democratic agenda. He committed to president obama's agenda in a very strong way and that caused there to be very high turnout in his reelection race particularly among the latino population in nevada Polls were showing him losing and he won unexpectedly and so. I think you know one way to approach these things and certainly mark kelly. Her fellow senator from arizona. has been much more open to fillibuster reform and other issues than she is. So it's you know even arizona's a narrow state it is possible To support the democratic agenda and some would argue even more beneficial politically to show the people who put you in office who knocked doors and donated campaign that you are going to support the policies that they wanna see an active right. Well we'll have to keep following this story especially braun love to have you back on the show to about how things play out in arizona whether or not senator cinema experiences any blowback for example for not showing up for the vote on january six commissioner going to vice. President harasses dinner. Bipartisan dinner for women in congress. But we'll stop this here for now. Ron hansen covers congress for the arizona republic. It was great to have iran. Thank you so much for having me. And by the way do check out his podcast. The gaggle an atom gentlemen executive director of battle born collective and author of kill switch. It was great to have you back. Thank you great start again. Make the thank you well. The american urge to constantly look forward and yes even as we just demonstrated right here on point can also lead to another american peculiarity. A collective historical amnesia even for the most recent events and we do not want to fall into that trap especially as this country has gone through an historic pandemic one. That's not even over yet. So we have been reaching out to guests who joined us this past kovic year. And we've been asking them to reflect on where they were and where they are now. Adrien marie brown is author of pleasure activism the politics of feeling good and emergent strategy shaping change and changing world. She joined us last year to talk about finding joy in the midst of overwhelming world events. It is absolutely the normal thing right now to be grieving every day. Like don't try to run away from that. Don't try to put joy on top of that. You can't deny feel it and then adapt like the adaptations. I'm making our idea to talk to my family. Every day i want to see their faces every week. That's as much as we can do right now. Be with uncertainty the small one step at a time. Your best bestself. In that moment that was last year we played the moment back to her recently. And here's how she reacted. I definitely feel the wave of grief that moves through me. Bet site been moving through in his still moving through in that moment and i feel gratitude listening to it. Because i'm like. Oh yes i have been in such good contact with my family and my loved ones. This has year has been a year of realizing how much we matter to each other and taking it seriously. I'm grateful that yes. That's that's feel. And that's what. I've been practicing. She shared with this past year has been like for her I've been astounded.

"This is on point. i'm meghna chakrabarti. And today we're learning. All we can about the political past and present of arizona. Senator kirsten cinema and therefore trying to understand what the future of her party. The democratic party might be joined today by. Ron hansen covers congress and state politics for the arizona republic and as e central. He's also co host of the podcast. The gaggle is with us from phoenix at them is with us as well. As former deputy chief of staff for then majority leader. Harry reid and author of kill switch the rise of the modern senate and inevitably we have arrived at the conversation over senator cinemas defense of the filibuster in the senate and last month as she toured the united states. Mexico border and border patrol facilities alongside. Texas republican senator. John cornyn she was asked by reporters regarding her support of the filibuster s folks in arizona. Long been a supporter of the filibuster. Because it is a tool that protects the democracy our nation rather than allowing our country to ricochet wildly every two to four years back and forth between policies. The idea of the filibuster was to create comedy and to encourage senators to find bipartisanship and work together and while there are some who don't believe that bipartisanship is possible. I think that i'm a daily example. That bipartisanship is possible. Adam i believe you take exception to senator cinemas historical analysis of the filibuster i do. It's just not accurate. You know her. Her defensive filibusters has been routinely characterized by these kind of Mis- misleading statements You know the filibuster wasn't created by the framers in fact the framers were Very vehemently opposed to the filibuster or anything like existing. They were very specific that they thought that if any sort of supermajority requirement requiring more than a majority to pass things in the senate existed They predicted that. It would lead to gridlock. Just as we are seeing today It didn't exist in the senate for most of its existence. The senate was a majority rule body for two hundred years and only really become a phenomenon In recent decades so this idea that is this historic Foundational element of the senate is just simply not not true. And and it's not just me saying this. This is a widely accepted fact among historians scientists. Well can i just turn back to around here for second. Because ron Again i just want to give your podcast. The gaggle great shout out. It's fantastic. But i was listening to A recent interview that you did with senator cinema for a couple of months ago a little earlier this spring and you and your co host. Just flat out astor. She's being naive about the possibility. For bipartisanship and comedy in the senate which i thought was excellent question especially given given the the political savvy that she has historically shown we've talked about earlier show given the fact that she's got an educational Cvb longer than my arm and how so. How did she respond to the question about. Is she being naive about the possibility for comedy in the senate she is she paying that she thinks that bipartisanship still exist and that it's something that is a hard process that you can get If you're willing to do the work and that's something that i think to a lot of folks these days it just feels like it doesn't reconcile with their lived experience of contemporary politics And i think that that's where this great tension by is at the moment especially with Democratic and liberal activists net. She seems committed to an ideal that to them seems You know antiquated if not extinct. But so adam. I mean it that ideal may seem extinct. I would say for a reason because one of the things that she told in that interview that he did with her he she. She went back to her her notion about. You've got to change behavior in the senate. Don't change the rules. Don't change the historic rules. A change the behavior of the people operating within those rules but it but in but in the in the in the current senate. Where as you know. I mentioned earlier senator mitch. Mcconnell has repeatedly said his goal as it was for the obama administration for the biden administration is to simply stop to. Stop all the administration's agenda. Where are the incentives at all for behavior change in the modern senate that that's exactly right on the incentives for behavior change point into the exact opposite direction that she wants to move in republicans have enormous incentives not to cooperate with democrats and and enormous incentives to block president agenda. This is exactly what they did to president obama and i hate to say it but it worked for them it. It yielded enormous political gains for them. Sad as it may be to say that. So i think it is. It is a naive refusal to open your eyes and look around and recognize the world that we live in where republicans simply have enormous incentives not not to provide the ten additional votes. The democrats need to pass anything through filibuster when irony is that the current sixty vote threshold is in many ways blocking bipartisanship You all you have to do is look at the vote. For instance on january six commission a few weeks ago where seven republicans did actually cross over and vote with democrats. But because that wasn't enough to get you to sixty that vote failed so because of the existence of the filibuster an opportunity for a bipartisan vote to establish a commission failed you know. And if filibuster didn't exist this thing would have passed with fifty five fifty six fifty seven votes and we would right now have january six commission so not only is it somewhat naive to expect frequent bipartisanship in the rare instances where it does appear to be possible the sixty vote threshold is preventing it from happening because it's just too high a hurdle to clear right now well so ron hansen As as we played some tape earlier regarding Where senator cinema comes from in terms of her approach..
