Speaker Nancy Pelosi rules the House of Representatives with an iron fist.
In fact, her shrewd style of “leadership” is what makes Pelosi one of the most controversial and polarizing politicians in all of America.
And Nancy Pelosi just issued a new mandate that will make several House members red with rage.
Whether or not Americans should be required to wear a mask in public is one of the top issues of debate right now in America, with many on the Left advocating making not wearing a mask in public a criminal offense.
On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives got involved in the debate when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi created a new rule mandating that House members wear a mask at all times, even when speaking from the floor.
And should a member decide to take off their mask while speaking from the floor, according to Speaker Pelosi, that individual will no longer be recognized by the chair.
“The chair will take this occasion to update her announcement of July 29 and November 13 – excuse me, 18, concerning the wearing of masks in the Hall of the House during the coronavirus pandemic,” said Pelosi.
“The chair wishes to, again, emphasize the importance of safe practices during House proceedings. Accordingly, masks will now be required at all times in the Hall of the House, without exception, including while members are under recognition. The chair would reiterate that this is a matter of order and decorum in the chamber under Clause 2 of Rule I. To be clear, members will not be recognized unless they are wearing a mask and recognition will be withdrawn if they remove the mask while speaking,” declared Pelosi.
Even though study after study shows that masks are largely ineffective at stopping the spread of COVID-19, it hasn’t stopped the Left from vehemently pushing for all Americans to wear a mask or face penalty under the law.
And now Pelosi mandating that House members wear a mask at all times only further shows that mandating masks is more about power and control than it is about preventing the spread of COVID-19.
