While at CPAC yesterday, Rep. Lauren Boebert threw out some red meat for the crowd, saying:

"We're here to tell government we don't want your benefits. We don't want your welfare. Don't come knocking on my door with your Fauci ouchie, You leave us the hell alone,"

Naturally, the irony of this caught people's attention, including a well-known Democratic congresswoman.

Correction:

Apparently Boebert's restaurant did NOT receive PPP funds, as stated in a tweet we published in this post, but have now removed....misinformation corrected by Daniel Dale.

This in no way invalidates the rest of the accusations of rank hypocrisy Boebert exudes simply by accepting her federal salary.
