Fletcher votes to give $5 million to…herself?
Bob Salera | March 8, 2019

Today, Lizzie Fletcher and her fellow Democrats passed H.R. 1, their first major legislation of the new Congress. So, what was their top priority? Job creation? Veterans? The economy? No! The first major program passed by House Democrats primarily benefits…House Democrats.

H.R. 1 would funnel up to $5 million to Lizzie Fletcher and other socialist Democrats’ campaign accounts, forcing the American public to foot the bill for Fletcher’s TV ads, fundraisers, mail to voters and even her personal expenses. The bill is so extreme that it was even opposed by the liberal ACLU which warned it would “unconstitutionally infringe the freedoms of speech and association.”

NRCC Comment: “Lizzie Fletcher promised to work for Texans, but today’s vote shows she’s only working for herself. By voting to funnel public funds to her campaign, Fletcher’s proven she’s right at home in the swamp.” – NRCC Spokesman Bob Salera
