Even though Illinois is “one of the states hardest hit by fentanyl,” Underwood was one of the few members to oppose a bipartisan ban on this deadly substance which killed 1,187 Illinoisans in 2017 alone – one every 7 hours.
The Chicago Tribune Editorial Board blasted Underwood for refusing to keep this deadly drug off our streets.
Congresswoman Underwood promised Illinois she’d get to work on health care and creating good-paying jobs for hard-working families. But instead, she has embraced the radical left’s calls to impeach the President. The unhinged left has spent 3 years searching for any excuse to remove President Trump from office and Congresswoman Lauren Underwood has stood right beside them every step of the way.
Underwood has made it clear: she has no intention of delivering on the issues most important to Illinois families, as long as she gets to vote to remove President Trump from office.
Socialist Democrats like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have called for open borders and abolishing ICE – the agency responsible for enforcing America’s immigration laws.
And Congresswoman Lauren Underwood? She viciously attacked the brave men and women fighting to keep our nation’s borders secure, accusing border patrol of “intentionally” murdering innocent children. It’s outrageous.
Lauren Underwood’s comments were so extreme, Democrats and Republicans condemned her remarks in a vote.
While Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib repeatedly spew anti-Semitic hatred, Congresswoman Underwood does nothing to stand up to their vile rhetoric.
Asked what she thinks of Omar’s offensive remarks, Underwood’s only comment? “I’ll take her at her word.”
So much for courageous leadership.
Despite representing a district won by President Trump, Congresswoman Underwood has embraced the far-left, with a voting record even more extreme than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s.
Ocasio-Cortez has even ENDORSED Congresswoman Underwood and helped raise money for her campaign.
Even though Congresswoman Underwood put on scrubs for her campaign commercials and paints herself as a physician with real-world medical experience, the New York Times reports Congresswoman Underwood has never once treated a patient. Truth is: Lauren Underwood has never actually practiced nursing in Illinois – or any state in the country for that matter.
Bet you won’t see that in her campaign commercials!
