Marie Glusenkamp Perez: Radical Democrat

Marie Glusenkamp-Perez ran as a moderate Democrat, but her voting record demonstrates how out of step she is with the conservatives of Washington’s Third District. She votes in line with the Biden administration’s radical agenda to increase inflation, weaken our national defense, and open our borders.

U.S. BORDER AND IMMIGRATION

Cosponsored a Bill to Protect Other Country’s Borders and Not Our Own. Marie cosponsored a fake “border security bill” that gives $66 billion to foreign countries and does nothing to stop illegal immigration or secure our border (118th Congress, H.R. 7372).

ECONOMY

Voted Against American Energy, Farmers, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Marie has consistently sided with Biden’s climate agenda at the expense of her constituents.

This bill repealed Biden’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) regulations, which gave control of our waterways to bureaucrats and burdens ranchers, landowners, and farmers. This bill also provides funding for the Corp of Engineers, a group that is critical in mitigating flooding in the Third District.
