This week the CDC announced that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks except in very few instances.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t care. Even though most members of Congress are vaccinated, she is still requiring masks on the House floor.
The left can’t let go of the pandemic. They want this to continue.
PJ Media reports:
Pelosi Says Mask Mandate Will Continue on House Floor
President Joe Biden celebrated the lifting of most CDC requirements to wear a mask by saying, “Today is a great day for America.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi begs to differ. When a reporter asked her if she will drop the mandate to wear a mask on the House floor, her response was: “No. Are they all vaccinated?”
Some Republicans, for their own reasons, have not gotten vaccinated and apparently never will. Pelosi is going to use that as an excuse to maintain the mask mandate even after it’s totally unnecessary.
“It’s about control,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday evening. “She wants to control the House.”
More from the Washington Post:
But Pelosi (D-Calif.) pointed toward a lingering number of unvaccinated House members as part of the decision to keep mask rules in place on the House floor. Pelosi said last month that roughly a quarter of legislators have yet to receive a coronavirus vaccine and noted: “We cannot require someone to be vaccinated.”
Some Republicans have said they aren’t getting vaccinated because they’ve had covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, and now have antibodies. Others, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) have publicly declined to take a vaccine.
Is anyone going to call Pelosi a science denier?
Nancy Pelosi is ignoring — contravening — CDC guidelines by requiring vaccinated House members to keep wearing a mask even after the CDC said it's no longer scientifically necessary. "Follow the Science" was, for so many, about control:https://t.co/I4VtMuKvus

This is all about control.
