Moments ago, Rep. Boebert blasted Democrats pushing for DC Statehood.
“Ask any liberal how long they’ve wanted 51 states and watch their eyes glaze over as they try to think of a lie,” Boebert tweeted.

When Republicans take back the House in 2022, you better believe that we will NOT forget the obstruction and refusal to cooperate from the Democrats.
I’m tired of the GOP always having to be the ones to “play fair”.
When we take back the House, we’re not backing down.
Thursday, the House has passed a bill to make D.C. the 51st state with a party line vote of 216 to 208. All Republicans rejected the bill.
House Speaker Pelosi argued “Statehood for the District of Columbia is about showing respect for our democracy.”
“It’s well past the time to grant them the rights that they have been fighting for and that they deserve,” she added.
