House Republicans order Pelosi, Schumer to reopen the Capitol

Washington, D.C. is the people’s city, financed by citizens and run by elected officials. However, the Capitol has been closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, and some Republicans think it’s time to follow the science and open back up.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — along with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — was just ordered by  32 Republicans in the House of Representatives to reopen the capitol, Breitbart reported. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) led the effort, calling access a First Amendment right.

The letter called on Pelosi and Schumer to “lift COVID-19 restrictions limiting public access to the United States Capitol.” It pointed out that there are now “official business visits allowed at the U.S. Capitol as of April 26, 2021, and at the House Office Buildings on April 29, 2021,” so opening it up to the public “seems only natural” as the next logical step.

“The First Amendment to the Constitution establishes the people’s right to petition their government for redress of their grievances,” Brooks asserted in a separate statement. “Prior to Pelosi and Schumer’s draconian Capitol access restrictions, the American people could easily visit the Capitol offices of their senators and representatives. Now, to gain access to the House and Senate office buildings, citizens must be on preapproved lists kept by the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms,” he pointed out.

“America has historically prided ourselves on transparency and easy citizens access to government institutions,” he continued. “It is shameful that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer persist in keeping the law-abiding American citizens out of their own Capitol, especially when states are lifting restrictions and the CDC is recommending fully-vaccinated Americans return to pre-COVID normalcy.”

On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lifted mask recommendations for vaccinated individuals in most settings, Fox News reported. According to Brooks’ statement, “Nancy Pelosi said ‘about 75%’ of House members are vaccinated. That exceeds herd immunity requirements,” he asserted.

“The American people demand a return to pre-COVID normalcy,” Brooks continued. He went on to reiterate that it is a Constitutional right for the people to be able to access their government officials.

“As is often the way with Socialists, they don’t give a twit about denying citizens their First Amendment rights to make their voices heard,” Brooks concluded. “I, and the signers of this letter, demand Pelosi and Schumer protect and defend First Amendment rights by lifting Capitol access restrictions.”

With cases going down and vaccinations going up, there is little reason to keep up with these restrictions. It seems government officials are reluctant to let their power go even as science negates such restrictions.

Most people are making a lot more money that that. In fact by the time you pay taxes on it at 45% to Sleep Joe Biden. You won’t have nearly as much money as someone who already has paid their taxes for working.

The economy is terrible , Americans need to be able to save to repair the homes, cars, maintenance etc, hygiene is an important part of every Americans life, all elected officials do know these things , it is not all about them getting rich , supplying the rich with their needs, Agriculture is just as important affordability, of all things in life must be accessible to every American in their own country . Foreign Nationals should only be welcome if they enter legally with & with out their kids, respecting our country, laws & first responders, neighborhoods , paying their taxes, these people who have entered Illegally have not even made an effort to become Americans , while Americans have given them free tools to learn the American language, & many of them do know much of the Americans language but want everything for free, on the backs of the American people , this can not happen , while Americans are taxed to death . As African Americans can not non-stop use the White people as step all over whites to break the laws, abuse them , take advantage of them , & not be punished for wrong they do to white people , & white police officers for crimes they commit . Black & brown skinned people have laws rules etc. plain & simple. so do the elected officials of all walks of life .

Thank you Anna for exposing the corrupt “Demorats” terrible policies!! Everything that comes out of their mouths & the media are lies!! They are the ones responsible for dividing Americans. There is no systemic racism in our country. The “Demorats” are spreading this propaganda to incite violence! They used the pandemic to control every aspect of our lives. We must stand up to these corrupt lying “politicians” to win our freedoms back. God Bless America the land of the Free!

It’s past time to open DC to the people. The fence reminds me Of a green zone in Iraq or Afghanistan. Mid piglosi and chuckie Schumer need to have to pay for the guard out their pockets. If they are that afraid of the people then they need to quit and go home. They are the cause of the trouble

Mike, they are as corrupt as can be. We citizens used to have the right to petition the government for grievances, but the Dems have taken that away. They will never open the Capitol on their own, they will need to be forced. Never forget that rats and politicians prefer to do their work in the dark.

The capitol of the United States should never be closed…. This is a bunch of idiots afraid of doing their jobs…
A bunch of spoiled kids terrified of what they peacefull gathering of AMERICANS not rioters like they have imposed their rioters on like Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland and many other cities in the US…. Why don’t they try and uphold the law instead and things like this wouldn’t happen… Hold people accountable and responsible to the rule of law… Instead they are party driven fools hungry for power!!!!!
