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.

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).

Voted Against American Energy, Farmers, and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. Marie has consistently sided with Biden’s climate agenda at the expense of her constituents. She voted against the “2024 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bill” that rolled back Biden’s red tape, cut billions in Green New Deal Spending, and included funding for district projects (118th Congress, H.R. 4394). This bill repealed Biden’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) regulations, which gave control of our waterways to bureaucrats and burdens ranchers, landowners, and farmers.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.

Voted Against Spending Reforms, Saving Taxpayer Dollars, and Repealing Red Tape. Marie voted against the “Limit, Save, Grow Act'' which saves $4.5 trillion and creates economic growth by prioritizing fiscal responsibility (118th Congress, H.R. 2811). Marie voted for H.R. 1 “Lower Energy Costs Act,” but that vote is meaningless because the Limit, Save, Grow Act would have put H.R. 1 into effect.

Voted to Defund the VA. In July, Marie voted against fully funding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) along with every other House Democrat (118th Congress, H.R. 4366).

Voted to Give More Power to Unelected Bureaucrats. Marie voted against the REINS Act which would have returned power back to the people by establishing a congressional approval process for a major rule imposed by federal agencies (118th Congress, H.R. 277).
