I don’t support Bernie Sanders’ and AOC’s Green New Deal. LB: Again, I reject your premise. DMB: I support access to the essential health care Planned Parenthood provides, and I am proud to have their endorsement. Lauren Boebert: I reject your premise that my platform is location-specific.

Please see my health care op-ed published in the Pueblo Chieftain. Finally, public lands are responsible for more than 500,000 jobs across the state every year. That will mean reliable funding for improvements to our water infrastructure, broadband, the electric grid and transportation infrastructure — and good-paying jobs to accomplish those projects. AJ: What is your stance on the Colorado Outdoor Recreation & Economy (CORE) Act, which is supported by a majority of people in the Roaring Fork Valley? That’s why I’m talking to voters everywhere — not just in blue counties and towns. Back in the State House, we called resolutions “letters to Santa Claus.” The resolution doesn’t do anything, and it’s remarkably out of touch with the issues that we face in rural Colorado.

The Twitter profiile pics of former Colorado state representative Bri Buentello and U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert. Trump congratulated Boebert on Twitter, saying, "Congratulations on a really great win." She said she was very influential in getting Rifle to open up. She told Pitkin County public health officials that one of her fundraisers would be outside and that attendees would wear masks. That’s when things really turned around for us. They’ll break differently for Boebert than they would for Tipton,” he added, and her fortunes could depend in large part on Trump’s in November. I support keeping the Affordable Care Act in place — particularly because it is the only law on the books that protects more than 300,000 people in CD3 with a preexisting condition.

This legislation and bills like it will boost our outdoor economy and ensure that public lands stay in public hands so that all Coloradans may enjoy them. Asked about it on an online show, Boebert first said she was familiar with QAnon but added, “that’s more my mom’s thing — she’s a little fringe.”, But when asked if she thought “Q is a bad thing” by the interviewer, Boebert replied: “No, honestly, everything that I’ve heard of Q, I hope that this is real — because it only means America is getting stronger and better, and people are returning to conservative values. “I do think the Republicans nominated the right person for a Democrat to run up the numbers in Pueblo,” he said.

DMB: I’m all about cutting red tape, and that’s just what I did in the State House.

DMB: The Green New Deal introduced in February 2019 is a 15-page resolution drafted by left-wing liberals on the East Coast. AJ: She said you have “advocated for universal health care,” “had a multi-year love fest with Bernie Sanders and his socialized medicine schemes” and the she (Boebert) “could not afford the payroll tax of socialized medicine.”.

Diane Mitsch Bush Author’s note: These questions were posed to Diane Mitsch Bush in response to numerous accusations made by Lauren Boebert in her campaign rallies in Meeker, Craig and Steamboat Springs in late September. If Boebert can’t treat people with respect, no matter where they live, how can we expect that she’ll represent us all, not just her supporters?
