The Republicans who voted for the radical Dems’ far-left $8.5 BILLION budget

On Thursday, far-left Democrats in the New Mexico House of Representatives rammed through a far-left budget co-opted from scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s executive budget. Despite the extremist content of the budget, including hundreds of millions of dollars in wasteful spending, some Republicans aided the Democrats in their efforts and voted in favor of the radical budget.

The budget included items such as $10 million for eco-left policies to carry out the Governor’s Green New Deal, hundreds of thousands of dollars for an “Office of Equity and Inclusion” and $300,000 ​​to hire a vehemently anti-gun activist to develop policies to limit the Second Amendment, $2.9 million for anti-energy “conservation” projects, among other disastrous measures.

State Rep. Stefani Lord, who did not vote for the wasteful budget commented on social media, “Many programs in this budget need funding. Unfortunately, this budget bill is filled with excessive reoccurring spending that will cause tax increases.” 13 fiscally responsible Republicans did the right thing and voted against the budget.

Here are the state representatives who voted for the extreme $8.5 billion Democrat budget that increases spending at least 13% from the previous year and millions in wasteful recurring It is 50% larger than spending ten years ago in New Mexico. See their recorded votes here.

Following the disastrous vote, Rep. T. Ryan Lane attempted to downplay his vote with the Radical Democrats on the bad budget bill. He explained it away, claiming the boondoggle had some good things in it and defensively accusing New Mexicans who disagreed with him on the budget that they “clearly don’t understand the budget process.”

The fiscally conservative Rio Grande Foundation tweeted, “Sad for ANY @NMHouseGOP member to vote for this wasteful budget.”

  1. Sadly, our RPNM will likely say nothing. The party itself has systemic problems that need to be addressed. Namely, it needs to search for a spine.

  2. Looks just like the wall of worthless politicians. It’s time to remove people from office that just don’t get it. They blow money on things that they don’t understand presented to them by crooked lobbyist who line their own pockets with tax money that has been forcibly removed from the citizens of this state. Lets stop the frivolous spending. On another note, let’s prosecute airline pilots who traffic in illegal immigrants. It’s unlawful to aid and abet in gov. illegal immigrant trafficking’s. Arrest any airline pilot caught with a planeload of illegals.
