‘Let’s follow the science’: GOP lawmakers slam Pelosi for refusing to end mask mandate

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made headlines this week by issuing new guidance that fully vaccinated Americans can forego a face mask in most situations.

Among U.S. lawmakers, however, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared that she will keep the chamber’s mask mandate in effect — and nearly three dozens GOP members are speaking out.

“Return to normal”

A letter signed by 34 Republicans landed on Pelosi’s desk in protest of her ongoing requirement.

“In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance released on May 13, 2021, we urge you to immediately return to normal voting procedures and end mandatory mask requirements in the House of Representatives,” they wrote.

Roughly 75% of Congress members have been vaccinated and all have had the opportunity to get their shots, the GOP lawmakers continued.

“The United States Congress must serve as a model to show the country we can resume normal life through vaccination,” they concluded. “Let’s follow the science and get back to work.”

In an encouraging update this week, the CDC clarified that in all but a handful of situations, vaccinated individuals should feel safe in most indoor and outdoor spaces without a mask.

“Telling us to follow the science”

“We’ve gotten this far,” the agency noted. “Whether you choose to get vaccinated or wear a mask, please protect yourself until we get to the finish line.”

Nevertheless, Pelosi replied “no” when asked if she would change her existing mask mandate on the House floor, adding: “Are they all vaccinated?”

Some of the harshest comments from fellow lawmakers came from Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH), who led the group behind the letter and issued a statement of his own.

“For all the talk from President Biden, Speaker Pelosi, and the mainstream media telling us to follow the science, political leaders should be setting an example for getting back to normal, not cowering in fear in defiance of common sense,” he wrote.

Gibbs insisted that the “House of Representatives is filled with enough political drama” and does not need Democratic Party leaders “contributing to vaccine hesitancy with the same Mask-erpiece Theater Congress engaged in during Biden’s address to the joint session.”

  2. She’s a fraud and a true faker.
    She should be voted out of offic3e.
    Plus, for her support for abortion and funding Planned Parenthood in the USA & overseas, she should not only be denied the Eucharist but also be ex-communicated.
    Plus, she was sad that the Supreme Court decided in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor. How noble of her and she should be ashamed.

  3. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    Pelosi is starting to lose control and she thinks that by keeping the mask mandate in place that she can keep control. Pelosi needs to be put completely out of our government and “NOW”. Pelosi is no good for our government and she never has been.

  4. All this BS about masks, bad mask, no mask should show every American that this person and the Democrat party do not themselves believe in what they are saying. The CDC has flip flopped so many times I don’t think even they believe the BS they put out. This all about controlling you fellow Americans repub, Dem or ind. Bag Pelosi will be done when they screw her into the ground. She is 80 and a closet alcoholic, so maybe the Lord will take mercy on us and she goes soon.

  5. Maybe if people start praying for God to show Pelosi his Word and Truth she will change. That would show miracles can happen and bring others to faith.

  6. Got to understand….let’s not make a good thing go to waste!!…they are trying to drag this out til AFTER the midterm election in 2022 and are milking this and keeping up the 5alks about possible FUTURE stimulus money…..to help maintain their majority in the house and senate …maybe even pick up a few more seats

  7. Tell us what good the mask is! When you fart it goes through your underwear and the other things you have on! You can still smell it! What good is the mask for?

    1. You’re correct. Good old common sense wins again. Unfortunately, Congress doesn’t have the common sense of a fruit fly. They’re too busy posturing and trying to take the taxpayers for more illicit money.

  8. B.S. on “she’s finished”. I’m so tired of reading article titles that state, “he/she is “done’ or ‘finished’! They’re not done or finished unless they’re voted out of office or retire! No high ranking DemocRAT politician will EVER see the inside of a prison cell. They ARE above the law! Just look at the corrupt Hillary: she committed a FEDERAL FELONY and is still walking around free (thanks to weak traitor Chief Justice Roberts) spewing her lies, vileness, and hatred!

    1. If Pelosi died tomorrow, they couldn’t bury her. They couldn’t close the coffin over her big mouth for months.

  9. I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where i started…………..—->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> http://snag4.com/
