Pelosi announces extension of remote House voting, despite CDC’s updated guidelines

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is unyielding to changing circumstances as America begins to put the coronavirus in the past. The House speaker is requiring House members to wear masks until 100% of lawmakers have taken the COVID shot, despite the CDC’s big announcement last week — and she’s renewing remote voting indefinitely, about a year after introducing the unprecedented procedure on a strictly partisan basis in May 2020.

With a terse letter, Pelosi announced that she was extending the controversial rules that allow lawmakers to vote remotely until July 3 — over the objections of House Republicans who are calling for a return to normal, The Hill reported.

Pelosi renews proxy voting

As with COVID lockdowns, what began as a brief, but drastic, alteration to custom turned into a “new normal,” as Pelosi extended the rules again and again.

Even with 75% of House members now vaccinated, Pelosi cited an ongoing “public health emergency” to justify the change in a formulaic letter citing the Sergeant-at-Arms.

“I am hereby extending the ‘covered period’ designated on January 4, 2021, pursuant to section 3(s) of House Resolution 8, until July 3, 2021,” Pelosi said.

Republicans, who have long (fruitlessly) opposed the unconstitutional rules, said “there is simply no scientific or public health need to continue entertaining these restrictive practices” in a letter pleading with Pelosi to follow the science.

“It is time we follow the science, lead by example, and fully return to work to serve the American people,” they wrote.

Pelosi floats de facto forced vaccination

In the meantime, Pelosi is threatening to keep the House masked up forever until every last member has been vaccinated.

Although she recently said she could not mandate that lawmakers get the shot, Pelosi now appears to be taking a page out of Joe Biden’s book. “No,” she said last week when asked if she would drop the mask mandate. “Have they all been vaccinated?”

Brian P. Monahan, the attending physician for Congress, is also saying the mandate should remain “until all Members and floor staff are fully vaccinated.”

There were signs of resistance on Tuesday when 12 Republicans flouted the bogus mask rule, incurring $500 fines apiece.

It sure looks like Pelosi is in no hurry to give away her COVID emergency powers.

  1. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site.

  9. There is NOTHING in the Constitution that requires that a member of Congress, or any other office, to share their health information. Also, HIPPA protects health information without meeting certain requirements for consent and disclosure. How is it that Pelosi is receiving confidential medical information. Let’s see the 435 HIPPA releases.

  10. Wait….I thought all vaccinated people do not need to wear masks?? So just allow those who did not get the vax to wear masks, if they would like to. It never should be mandated…. Fauci himself was unsure if the masks even help.

  11. Tell Pelosi to take a hike. We will not accept her rigging another election. No mail-in votes unless you are disabled. Period.
