The Republican-controlled House of Representatives approved Rep. Lauren Boebert’s amendment to protect homeowners from “socialist Biden policies.”
According to a news statement from her office, “Today, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s amendment requiring the Government Accountability Office to publish a report on its website exposing the costs and process associated with the Biden administration’s socialist housing policies passed the House by voice vote with unanimous bipartisan consent. Boebert’s amendment will help protect homeowners from Biden’s disastrous scheme to raise fees for people with higher credit scores to subsidize those with lower credit scores.”
“My commonsense amendment provides transparency for the American people and exposes the costs and arbitrary processes used by Biden’s minions to ram through his socialist housing policy that penalizes responsible homeowners to subsidize high-risk individuals. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington should not be able to impose these un-American regulations on hardworking middle-class families. This is a gross overreach and will ultimately exacerbate the growing inflation problem in this country,” according to Boebert.
“Joe Biden’s decision to subsidize failure makes more sense when you realize he’s hired Mayor Pete, Karine Jean-Pierre, and Kamala Harris. Raising housing fees at a time when mortgage rates are at the highest level in years thanks to the Biden-Pelosi spending spree will make housing less affordable and result in higher mortgage costs and reduced access to credit for most borrowers who are working hard and doing their best just to get by,” Boebert continued.
“Over the past year of Biden’s economic failures, mortgage interest rates have doubled. To make matters worse, Biden rolled out new socialist housing changes that forced borrowers with good credit scores to pay more per month to subsidize borrowers with low credit scores. For instance, on a $400,000 mortgage, a borrower with a credit score of 680 would be forced to pay $40 more per month to subsidize similar borrowers with worse credit scores,” she explained.
“Congresswoman Boebert’s amendment to Congressman Warren Davidson’s Middle-Class Borrower Protection Act passed the House by voice vote with unanimous, bipartisan consent. The bill ultimately passed the House with bipartisan support, 230-189. Congresswoman Boebert voted for the Middle-Class Borrower Protection Act since it scraps Joe Biden’s disastrous policy of subsidizing failure at the expense of responsible homeowners,” the release continued.
Last month, Boebert made headlines when she announced her intention to require every House member to publicly state their stance on President Joe Biden’s alleged policies and conduct while in office.
BREAKING: I am bringing my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden to the House Floor in a privileged motion, meaning that every Member of Congress must vote on holding Joe Biden accountable.

According to Boebert, Biden continues to operate recklessly at the U.S.-Mexico frontier, failing to protect Americans from the influx of lethal fentanyl and criminal activity. She has also stated that the president has made no progress in alleviating the burden on the immigration system.
“Biden intentionally ceded command & control of our border to cartels. His dereliction of duty caused the deaths of over 900 Coloradans from fentanyl, enabled sex trafficking, & allowed an invasion,” she posted on Twitter. “I brought my articles of impeachment up via a privileged motion to force a vote.”
Boebert alleged that Biden had failed to fulfill his “constitutional duty to secure our southern border” and threatened to submit articles of impeachment if the GOP leadership did not act.
“Given the gravity of Joe Biden’s violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, we must do this with our House majorities. “This is our duty as a result of Joe Biden’s disregard for the constitutional duties of the office of President of the United States,” she declared.
“I introduced the articles of impeachment in the last Congress and had fully intended to introduce them this Congress, but I was also giving some other committees and leadership the opportunity to lead on this,” Boebert said, explaining the delay.
