It’s typically one of the least controversial bills Congress takes up—a reauthorization of the national bone marrow donor program—but for reasons that seem divorced from reality, two of the most tendentious GOP lawmakers voted against the measure this week.
Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) were the two lone noes on a 415-2 vote on Thursday, and their opposition to a bill aimed at helping treat diseases like leukemia seemed, at best, curious.
In a 132-word statement provided to The Daily Beast, Greene railed against the national debt, abortion, and a lack of transparency—”ZERO transparency”—on spending. “Congress does not take the time to fully read and understand the bills it passes,” Greene wrote.
