Fletcher Votes To Give Her Campaign Millions in Tax Dollars

Houston, TX – Over the past two years, 7th District residents have seen Representative Lizzie Fletcher consistently put the interests of her campaign and Nancy Pelosi ahead of the needs of her district. Among the numerous examples is Fletcher’s co-sponsorship of H.R.1.

While our Nation struggles to provide the relief our small businesses and first responders need, Fletcher’s bill would cost over $10 billion and give political campaigns up to $5 million in federal funding to spend on negative advertising.

The last thing taxpayers should have worry about is their hard-earned dollars going to politicians they don’t support.

The federal government holds an immense responsibility as the steward of Americans’ tax dollars, and politicians in Washington should cut spending and conserve taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars, not wantonly spend them in their own self-interest.

Unfortunately, Fletcher’s bill cements her history of supporting increased spending and higher taxes. Rather than reducing government overreach or easing the tax burden on Houstonians, Fletcher seeks to raise taxes and require tax payers to foot the bill for her political campaigns.

This is an unfortunate reminder that in the face of massive government expansion and tax hikes envisioned by her far-left colleagues, Fletcher will not stand up for Houston’s best interests. Instead, she will continue to support the reckless spending and government overreach outlined in Nancy Pelosi’s agenda.
