President Joe Biden will try to make Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert the face of Republican opposition to his plan when he visits her congressional district on Wednesday.
Lauren Boebert in a Fresh Political Attack Against GOP
The trip comes as Biden battles with poor approval ratings as he prepares for a rematch with former President Donald Trump in 2024, leaving Democrats hungry for opportunities to score political points against Republicans.
Biden intends to visit CS Wind, the world’s largest wind tower manufacturing factory, in Pueblo. The trip was supposed to take place last month, but it was postponed because the Democratic president was preoccupied with the onset of hostilities between Israel and Hamas.
CS Wind is expanding by $200 million and expects to create 850 jobs by 2026, thanks to tax breaks provided in the Inflation Reduction Act, which featured hundreds of billions of dollars in financial incentives.
Furthermore, according to a new Treasury Department research, clean energy investments have primarily flowed to communities with below-average salaries and above-average child poverty. According to the White House, the numbers show that Biden’s programmes are increasing economic opportunity.
Boebert, a far-right insurgent with a nationwide following, has dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act “a massive failure” that “needs to be repealed.” She also called the 2021 bipartisan infrastructure bill “garbage” and “wasteful.”
According to the White House, the bill has contributed around $190 million to street and water infrastructure improvements in Colorado’s Boebert area.
Pueblo is a major city in Colorado’s enormous 3rd Congressional District, which is larger than Pennsylvania. Boebert gained her seat in 2020 and nearly kept it at the 2022 midterm elections.
The White House said Biden would speak about his administration’s progress on clean energy and “how self-described MAGA Republicans like Representative Lauren Boebert are threatening those investments, jobs, and opportunities,” referring to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
She recently had an uncomfortable incident when she was thrown out of a musical rendition of “Beetlejuice,” when she was seen vaping and groping with a date. She now faces a challenging reelection battle, maybe against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch.
Biden arrived in Colorado on Tuesday after attending a memorial service in Atlanta for former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, widow of former President Jimmy Carter. He spoke at a Denver fundraiser on Tuesday night, saying Trump and Republicans intended to forsake his administration’s work.
“We’re now investing in America,” stated Biden.
In recent weeks, Biden has taken a more aggressive stance against Republicans. For example, during a White House speech on supply chains on Monday, he launched a wide attack on Republicans for attempting “to undo this progress we’re making.”
“They want to go back to the bad old days, when corporations looked around the world to find the cheapest labour they could find, to send the jobs overseas, and then import the products back to the United States,” he added.
Biden also stated that Republicans seek to eliminate Social Security and Medicare, which are critical benefits for many senior Americans.
“They just don’t give up,” he remarked. “But guess what: We won’t let these things happen.”
Biden was supposed to visit Pueblo on Oct. 16, but the trip was cancelled so he could stay in Washington and focus on the Middle East situation. Two days later, he made a last-minute travel to Israel to offer his support for the country following the Oct. 7 Hamas attack.
