Neguse is reacting to Alabama Republican Rep. Gary Palmer trying to take credit for funding in his district that was created through the passage of a major piece of legislation THAT HE DID NOT ACTUALLY SUPPORT.
Don’t be surprised if you start seeing similar messages from Colorado Republicans such as Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert, Rep. Ken Buck, and Rep. Doug Lamborn. All three Republicans have steadfastly refused to lift a finger to attract any federal funding into their own districts but don’t have a problem taking credit for anything that falls into their lap as a result of the work of Democrats.
