Lauren Boebert

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) faced backlash on social media after she proudly shared details about a bridge project in her region.

Glenwood Springs

Boebert posted on X platform, “Great meeting with Glenwood Springs City Councilor and former Mayor Jonathan Godes.”

30 million

Boebert continued, “We have secured over $51.4 million for the South Bridge. Was thrilled to hear about nearly $30 million in costs savings in addition and that my support has helped make this project a reality.”

Conservative

The congresswoman is seeking to switch to a more conservative congressional district.

Funding

Crow argues that the funding originates from the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, a key initiative of the Biden administration that Boebert opposed.

Voted against

Others responded to Boebert’s contradictory actions of applauding funds for a project in her state that she had previously voted against.

Pete Buttigieg

“Congresswoman, in what way do you believe that your support helped this project?” asked Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.

Representative Jason Crow

Her colleague, Representative Jason Crow (D-CO), said, “Hey Colorado!! @RepBoebert actually voted against this funding. Now she’s trying to take credit! This is why people call DC a swamp …”

50 million grant

Boebert responded, “Hey Colorado! My office personally secured $1.4 million with my community development project request and also supported the $50 million grant that was received for the South Bridge Project.”

Biden border crisis

She continued, “@repjasoncrow has voted to fund and enable the Biden border crisis every chance he gets. if you’re sick of your tax dollars funding free benefits for illegal aliens blame Jason and his Democrat friends!”

Investments

“One thing about Congressional Republicans…they’re going to take credit for investments they voted against,” stated the official White House account.

Biden infrastructure package

“We chose it because it’s a good project, and funded it using President Biden’s infrastructure package, which you voted against.”

Caught in a lie

“Not surprisingly @laurenboebert is caught in a lie today!!” stated MailePRMedia, a marketing executive based in Boulder.

Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

The statement continued, “Even the @WhiteHouse called her out. She’s taking credit for something she voted against. @RepBoebert voted against the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and other legislation that the Administration has put forth to support America’s infrastructure!!! Will she update her post to reflect this Major gaffe?”

Dunking on Boebert

“Lots of people dunking on Boebert for voting against the bill that funded this, not enough people dunking on Boebert for the fact that we know she doesn’t actually give a s— about this project, because she’s [expletive] off to the other side of the state in 6 months,” as per Tobin Stone from the Center for New Liberalism.
