AOC v. Lauren Boebert: Progressive congresswoman taunts GOP colleague with ‘Good ol conservative values baby!’ after CPAC speech telling government ‘Leave us the hell alone!’
- Lauren Boebert said at CPAC on Saturday government needs to ‘leave us the hell alone’, and stop dolling out welfare and pushing vaccines on Americans
- ‘We don’t want your benefits. We don’t want your welfare. Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci Ouchi,’ Rep. Boebert said of federal government
- Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded in a tweet saying: ‘Tell ‘e loud and proud girl!’
- She claimed that ‘good ol conservative values’ consist of ‘stripping Americans of unemployment’ and ‘dismantling public safety nets’
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at Lauren Boebert on Saturday as she accused Republicans of wanting to ‘strip’ Americans’ of their unemployment benefits and get rid of ‘public safety nets.’
The progressive representative’s comments came in response to a video of Congresswoman Boebert at CPAC on Saturday saying: ‘We’re here to tell government, ‘We don’t want your benefits. We don’t want your welfare. Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci Ouchi.”
AOC responded with: ‘Tell ’em loud and proud girl! GOP will strip your unemployment protections and dismantle any semblance of a public safety net we have left! Then make working people pay way more for everything on low wages while Wall St gets a meal ticket!’
‘Good ol conservative values baby!’ she sarcastically quipped.

Boebert spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering in Dallas, Texas on Saturday where she pushed for smaller federal government.
She also referenced the ‘Fauci Ouchie,’ which has become a nickname for the coronavirus vaccine mixed with the president’s top COVID-19 adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci.
President Joe Biden announced a new initiative that would ‘target’ unvaccinated Americans in a door-to-door campaign where neighbors, canvassers and government affiliates would encourage hesitant people to get the jab.
Republicans have excoriated the president on this door knocking plan, claiming it is a way for the federal government to keep tabs on Americans’ personal medical decisions – like not getting the coronavirus vaccine.
Boebert is also pushing back against Biden’s massive welfare initiatives, including stimulus and relief from the American Rescue Plan and the president’s proposed American Families Plan, which includes a slew of tax-payer-funded welfare and social programs.
Boosted unemployment benefits, which last through September, have increased jobless benefits by $300 per week, meaning any American who made $32,000 or less in 2019, could earn more in unemployment benefits in 2021.

Some social programs Biden is proposing in his so-called ‘human infrastructure’ bill are free community college for all Americans, universal pre-kindergarten and child tax credits for low and middle income families.
Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most progressive members of Congress, is pushing for these initiatives to pass and demanding more climate change provisions are included in sweeping bills.
Boebert, on the other hand, is pushing for a smaller government and less intervention from Washington.
Former President Donald Trump will speak at the CPAC gathering on Sunday afternoon.
