Interview with Rep. Lizzie Fletcher

Rep. Lizzie Fletcher

I knew I wanted to talk to freshman Rep. Lizzie Fletcher this cycle, because there’s just so much to talk about. You know her story from 2018 – the crowded primary, the unprecedented amounts of money raised and spent, the eventual victory in a district that had been held by Republicans for over 50 years – but none of us could have known what the first two years in Congress would entail. Rep. Fletcher serves on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, and has passed multiple bills out of the House. This is my last interview for the fall, and as you may imagine, we had a lot to talk about.

    ~admits natural gas is good for reducing pollution

    ~still wants to kill oil and gas

    ~thinks killing O&G will be OK if we just get all the stakeholders together and sing kumbaya while people in Texas lose their O&G jobs

    Virtually all of her ‘accomplishments’ were voting in lock step with Pelosi on bills that will never pass the Senate. She admits that she and her Democrat colleagues haven’t been able to stop Trump from implementing the agenda he ran on. We’re up to over 360 miles of wall. Thanks to Dems hyping up the Wu flu, they gave Trump the power to insta-deport the illegals coming across the border where the wall hasn’t gone up yet. They haven’t been able to stop him from not starting new wars, or cutting taxes and regulation They have slowed him down on leaving Afghanistan, but haven’t stopped him, and it looks like the end is finally in sight. They couldn’t stop him from making the trade deals he promised, including the USMCA, couldn’t stop him from making peace agreements between Bosnia and Kosovo, couldn’t stop the peace deals between the UAE/Bahrain and Israel.

    It really seems like the only thing they have stopped was the prosecution of Team Obama/Biden/Hillary for illegal spying and the attempted coup on Trump. So yeah, I guess that’s an accomplishment, but not really by Lizzie and the House, more from embedded resistance in the DoJ.

    Sorry, Lizzie…..other than the money for dredging at the Port of Houston, it seems like you really haven’t done much, either FOR your district, or AGAINST Trump. You’ve failed your constituents, and failed Pelosi, who you clearly DO take orders from, despite your protestations.

    Previous comment… The smell of desperation.

  3. Bill Daniels says:

    Brad,

    Listen to the interview, then come back and talk to us.

    She admits natural gas has helped the US significantly reduce pollution, but STILL wants to screw over O&G. She touts bills that have zero chance of becoming law as achievements, and she more or less admits they haven’t been able to stump the Trump.

    November 3rd, baby.

  5. robert says:

    Bill, why don’t you run for office and make some changes?

  6. Manny says:

    Robert, if he did run I am pretty sure that he or she would not make the same type of stupid claims.

    He or she claims to live in Pearland, but yet he or she spends time concerned about races in Harris County.

    He or she fits the profile of a paid troll.

  7. C.L. says:

    Forget ‘Box of Rocks’ – ‘Trump the Stump’ sounds like a better description of this President.

  8. Bill Daniels says:

    Kuff took the time to conduct a fairly well thought out interview, Lizzie took the time to give it, and it looks like I am the only one here who actually listened to the interview.

    Weird.
