Final week, Congress voted on a invoice that might elevate the debt ceiling, thus avoiding a disaster that might see the nation defaulting on its loans and triggering a possible worldwide financial meltdown. It nearly didn’t come off thanks partially to the MAGA wing of immediately’s Republican Social gathering. That features Lauren Boebert. Seems she didn’t even vote, claiming she declined out of protest. However new video suggests that may not be on the extent.
Here’s a clip from that evening outdoors the Capitol, displaying Rep. Boebert operating up the steps as if she was attempting to make the vote, and me telling her that it had closed already.

As per The Daily Beast, CNN affiliate producer Morgan Rimmer posted a brief video on Sunday that appeared to indicate Boebert scrambling up the steps of the Capitol constructing at evening. Rimmer may be heard off-screen informing her, “They closed it.” “They closed it?” Boebert replies. “Yeah,” Rimmer tells her, although that doesn’t cease Boebert from persevering with to run.
Rimmer posted the video as a quote-tweet to a video Boebert posted on Saturday. “I used to be ticked off: They didn’t let me do my job. So I didn’t take the vote,” she claims. She echoed Marjorie Taylor Greene’s description of the invoice as a “crap sandwich” (although Greene’s time period for it was a bit more blue) then known as her absence a “no-show protest.” She added that she refused to be part of including extra to the already astronomical debt (that rose $7.8 trillion through the Trump presidency thanks partially to tax cuts).
It was a giant day for Boebert, who normally doesn’t make as a lot information as her on-off pal Greene. Earlier within the day it was revealed that, after a brand new DNA take a look at, former skilled wrestler Stan Lane was not her dad, as her mother has alleged for many years.
