Just days after securing a victory in Alaska’s at-large Congressional district, Rep. Mary Peltola, D-Alaska, is clashing with the Biden Administration’s agenda, saying she would vote against a proposed bill to avoid an economically crippling potential rail strike after workers called for more action on the inclusion of paid sick leave.
“I’m really concerned about the fact that the negotiation concluded without really getting where we need it to be,” Peltola said in an interview on Meet the Press NOW.

“Look, President Trump’s going to do what President Trump wants to do.
