President Biden is expected to travel Monday to GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s district in Colorado to tout his economic agenda.
The president heads to Pueblo in Colorado’s 3rd District to visit CS Wind, the largest wind tower manufacturer in the world, according to the White House.
Biden will deliver remarks on what the administration touts as “Bidenomics,” which is his plan to build the economy with a focus on the middle class, and the Inflation Reduction Act, which he signed into law last year.
The president will argue that both of his top agenda items are “mobilizing companies to invest in clean energy industries and create good-paying jobs in communities across the country, including Colorado’s third congressional district,” according to the White House.
The visit comes on the heels of Biden mocking Boebert in August when highlighting that CS Wind was constructing a plant in her district in Pueblo.
The investment in the plant came in part through funding from the Inflation Reduction Act, which is the Democrats’ massive climate and tax bill that every Republican in Congress voted against.
“Like in Colorado, where CS Wind broke ground on what will be the world’s largest wind tower manufacturing plant. And coincidentally, CS Wind is Congresswoman Lauren Boebert — you know, the very quiet Republican lady — it’s in her district,” Biden said.
Biden added that Boebert, “along with every other Republican, voted against this bill — and it’s making all this possible. And she railed against its passage. But, that’s OK, she’s welcoming it now.”
She is one of several GOP members who Biden has mocked for touting new projects in their districts after they voted against the legislation that provided federal funding for them.
