Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema made the far left in her party big mad today with her “no” vote on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
But it wasn’t just that she voted no, it was the way she did it that ticked off her fellow Democrats.
Did Sinema really have vote against a $15 minimum wage for 24 million people like this? pic.twitter.com/Jv0UXLKLHI

Did she really have to do it like that? That’s what the above tweet from a member of Julian Castro’s team asks. It can’t be that Sinema is an actually reasonable democratic politician who understands how ridiculous a $15/hr minimum wage is. No, she’s just cruel and heartless.
Here are some other “boohoo” reactions that are particularly entertaining:

Breaking: Sinema pro-poverty!
I am insane and zoomed in on another picture of her carrying and in the spirit of Edward R. Murrow-level journalism I'm humbled to announce in a parody of white feminism Krysten Sinema [sic] voted against a $15 living wage while carrying a giant Lululemon bag. pic.twitter.com/BCHVCbpvR2

Oh no! She shops at Lululemon! How dare she! And yes, you are insane.
Sinema just taunted close to a million of her constituents with this no vote after walking into the chamber with a big piece of cake.

By the way, a minimum wage increase would not do any of those things. And I think Sinema understands this.
In 1938 Frances Perkins did everything in her power to ensure passage of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
