Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert was one of the two dozen Republicans that refused to vote for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy prior to his victory. For days she refused to cast her vote, but eventually she gave her support and it has now shown very beneficial as she has been appointed to the highly coveted House Oversight Committee.
“I’m honored to be joining the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability. Chairman @RepJamesComer, let’s get to work!” Boebert tweeted.

Following her appointment Beobert issued a statement saying “I am excited to get to work defending the individual liberties of the people of Colorado’s Third District by holding the Biden administration accountable.”
“As an advocate for transparency and reform, I will pursue the truth, conduct effective oversight and fight to root out waste, fraud and abuse throughout the federal government,” she continued.
Newsweek reported on the appointment saying “it gives the outspoken Colorado Republican outsized influence on looming investigations into three-letter agencies like the CIA and FBI that McCarthy—whom Boebert vocally opposed for the speaker post—had hinted at in the lead-up to Republicans taking the majority this past November.”
One of the first hearings Boebert will be a part of is relative to issues at the southern border.
Boebert issued a tweet on Jan. 19th saying “Mark your calendars. The week of Feb 6th. A @GOPoversight hearing on the invasion at our southern border. Time to get to the bottom of this mess. Buckle up!”

Prior to her appointment to the House Oversight Committee, Boebert announced the introduction of the No Taxpayer Funds for Illegal Alien Abortions Act.
Speaking on this new act Boebert said, “The Biden administration is unlawfully using taxpayer money to transport pregnant, illegal alien children across state lines for late-term abortions. My colleagues and I have introduced bicameral legislation to end these illegal and horrific policies once and for all.”
