SORRY ABOUT LAUREN BOEBERT (and more ways to fight for progress this week)

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ProgressNow Colorado

Colorado has never had a politician like Rep. Lauren Boebert. And hopefully we never do again.

In just over a year in office, Boebert has made just about everyone in Colorado cringe at least once–and that includes most of her right-wing friends. Now that Boebert has more followers on Twitter than residents of the Third Congressional District, Boebert has cast off any pretense that she cares about the issues that matter to her constituents. Like her mentor Donald Trump, Boebert spends all day every day getting her name in the press by any means necessary–usually by offending as many fellow Americans as possible.

After last week’s embarrassing antics from Rep. Boebert during the State of the Union address, [1] the time has come for Coloradans to send a clear message to the rest of America. We didn’t all vote for Boebert, in fact most of us didn’t–but as Coloradans, it’s on us to let the rest of America know that Lauren Boebert doesn’t speak for us.

Don’t travel around the country this summer without your official “SORRY ABOUT LAUREN BOEBERT” T-shirt from PNC, available in sizes S-2XL for only $25 shipping included. This union-made and printed unisex T-shirt sends an unmistakable message that while you may be from Colorado, you’re as disgusted by Boebert’s trainwreck term in office as they are. Proceeds from this shirt support ProgressNow Colorado’s ongoing work to hold Lauren Boebert accountable.

Don’t wait! Quantities and sizes are limited so order now. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.


Next, it’s time to stand up for abortion rights in the Colorado legislature. The Reproductive Health Equity Act is scheduled for its first hearing in the House Health and Insurance Committee this Wednesday March 9 at 1:30pm. This bill declares that everyone in Colorado has a fundamental right to use or refuse contraception, that every pregnant individual has a fundamental right to give birth or to have an abortion, and that a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of the state.

Take a moment to contact members of the House Health and Insurance Committee and urge them to vote YES on the Reproductive Health Equity Act.

Rep. Susan Lontine – 303-866-2966 or susan.lontine.house@state.co.us
Rep. David Ortiz – 303-866-2953 or david.ortiz.house@state.co.us

Rep. Kyle Mullica – 303-866-2931 or kyle.mullica.house@state.co.us
Rep. Patrick Neville – 303-866-2948 or patrick.neville.house@state.co.us
Rep. Emily Sirota – 303-866-2910 or emily.sirota.house@state.co.us
Rep. Matt Soper – 303-866-2583 or matthew.soper.house@state.co.us
Rep. Brianna Titone – 303-866-2962 or brianna.titone.house@state.co.us
Rep. Dave Williams – 303-866-5525 or dave.williams.house@state.co.us
