Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) stated, “The House passing this so-called ‘deal’ was another example of the Swamp shoving a $6-plus trillion blank check for Biden down Americans’ throats. I testified before the House Rules Committee advocating for my seven amendments, but the Swamp refused to even have real debate on the 80 amendments filed, rammed this thing through with a closed rule, and completely bypassed everything we fought for in January as part of the Rules package changes that were implemented allow Members a voice.
“The American people are struggling with high gas prices, groceries, and other monthly expenses that were fueled by Democrats’ federal spending spree that caused record inflation. We had a real opportunity to significantly cut federal spending, restore some fiscal sanity to Washington D.C., and get our economy back on track. Unfortunately, this disastrous deal did none of those things. The Swamp did its old song and dance and pretended to listen to the American people, but as soon as the backroom deal was made, it was predetermined that it would pass. I certainly wasn’t afraid to vote against the bill, as I have been advocating against it all week. I voted against the rule to consider the bill, I advocated against it publicly, and I will continue to call out the Swamp for selling out our conservative principles and mortgaging the American dream.”
