U.S. House Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) rose to speak today on the House floor, slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and what she termed as an authoritarian stance she has taken over Congress.
In a tweet where she shared a video of her speech, Boebert declared, “Congress is acting more like the Speaker’s House than the People’s House.”
Boebert added in the tweet, “Democrats wouldn’t even vote on bipartisan, commonsense amendments to: fight wildfires, combat Western drought, help homeless veterans.”

In a previous tweet, Boebert explained, “I introduced over 100 amendments to fix gaping problems in the Democrats’ disastrous FY22 appropriations bills.”
Boebert then listed some of the amendments that she had said that she proposed in a 9 part tweet including “Defund Planned Parenthood, ban vaccine passports, and to stop Biden’s plan to use tax dollars to pay for illegal immigrants’ college.”

– Defund Planned Parenthood.
– Ban vaccine passports.
– Stop Biden's plan to use tax dollars to pay for illegal immigrants' college.
Some on the left had recently claimed that Boebert received a PPP loan for her business, but a recent USA Today fact check rated that claim false.
From the USA Today:
After the Colorado Republican criticized government benefits at the Conservative Political Action Conference on July 10, online users accused Boebert of hypocrisy, claiming her gun-themed restaurant received one of the 11.8 million Paycheck Protection Program loans issued by the government.
“Please kindly pay back that PPP loan you eagerly took for your struggling restaurant. Thanks,” reads a tweet in response to a video of Boebert. A screenshot of the tweet was shared to Facebook on July 12 in a post with more than 1,000 reactions.
