Boebert Claims “You Gotta Do What You Gotta Do” in Wake of Vote for Disastrous Default Bill

Updated: May 23, 2023

Friday, April 28, 2023 – In response to her vote in support of the most extreme and harmful bills this Congress so far, Congresswoman Boebert flippantly told the New York Times, “...you gotta do what you gotta do.” So what did the Colorado Congresswoman vote to do when she supported the Default On America Act? Here’s a list of impacts.

By backing the Republicans’ laundry list of demands – an effort that wastes time while the country inches closer to default – they will hurt Colorado families and force a devastating default that is likely to disrupt Social Security and Medicare payments and cause higher interest rates on items like credit cards, car loans, and mortgage rates. “Colorado expects our elected officials to fight to help us live good lives, not play political chicken with a possible national default. And what will Colorado gain from this Republican and Boebert’s gamesmanship? Wreckless cuts to services Colorado families depend on, cuts to care for Colorado’s veterans, limited healthcare options, and increases to our already high cost of living. Boebert’s vote is completely out of touch with our Colorado values, “ said Justin Lamorte, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Values.
