Nancy Pelosi partially relents on House masking rules

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Tuesday that rules for lawmakers and staff regarding mask-wearing will be changed, with legislators allowed to remove them while recognized to speak for the first time since late 2020. 

“To be clear, members and staff must wear masks in the hall of the House at all times, except that a member may remove their mask when recognized by the chair. In addition, members presiding as chair may remove their mask when speaking,” Pelosi said.

According to The Hill, “Across the Capitol, meanwhile, there is no mask requirement in the Senate chamber. But the vast majority of senators and staff have nonetheless worn masks in compliance with health guidelines.”

The change comes shortly after President Joe Biden spoke without a mask in a socially distanced speech to a joint session of Congress with only 200 people in attendance.

Others in the audience were required to wear a mask, even though many Congress members have been vaccinated.

Pelosi’s change is much slower than other parts of the nation, however. Half of America’s states have already ended mask mandates.

The move may be largely theater at this point. With most House members vaccinated and COVID-19 numbers dropping in the U.S., fears over the spread of virus have decreased in recent weeks.

Still, Pelosi seeks to hold high requirements for safety. This is the same lawmaker who sought to institute metal detectors for House members.

Many Americans have stopped wearing a mask, but the rule will remain in the House except for when lawmakers speak during session.

If they want to roll the dice with lung cancer, okay. Prolonged mask usage leads to it.

TIME DITCH NANCY PELOSI, SHE HAS TO GO!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER and NOW, INSIDER TRADING! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

The dems have no idea what they are doing. They just wake up in a new world every day and can’t remember what they did yesterday. We have the most pathetic administration ever in the history of our country. But if we get rid of Biden, then we have Harris who will probably pick Hillary for her Vp. What a disaster that would be. We need to somehow get rid of the whole bunch of them. I am afraid we can’t wait until 2022.

The real reason she wanted to make everyone always wear a mask is makes it much more difficult to understand their words when they speak! Hence much easier to say stupid things and to flip-flop on issues. If no one can understand you, how can any one disagree. They might a well be speaking Mandarin (Chinese).

No one cares about what she says or wants. The best thing that could happen is for her to get sick and go away forever.

If the idiots want to wear the mask, than let them but people should not be ordered to wear one
