Sinema Swaps

It seems that Arizona Senator Krysten Sinema is leaving the Democrats and will register as an Independent.  This leaves us with 49 Republicans, 48 Democrats, and 3 independents.  The other independents, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Angus King of Maine, caucus with the Democrats to give them their majority.

We don't know yet where Sinema might caucus.

And it will be interesting to see what Manchin does next... if the two of them caucus with the Pubs, that would truly shift the balance!

Sinema -like Sanders votes with Democrats more than not.
Nothing will change except a worthless name change.
