Ever since the Democrats took control of both chambers of Congress, they’ve grown fat with power and authority.
There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight either.
And now a U.S. House Committee just handed down two rulings that stunned all of Congress.
It’s no surprise that Democrats and the Lockdown Left would do everything in their power to force anyone they could to fall in line with their draconian mask mandates.
So when the CDC announced that vaccinated individuals wouldn’t need to wear masks indoors anymore, the pro-mask lobby of course had to throw a fit.
That included slapping three Republican Congress Members – Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Thomas Massie (KY), and Ralph Norman (S.C.) – with $500 fines for simply not wearing a mask on the House floor.
The Republican representatives would later appeal, but the House Ethics Committee ruled in favor of upholding the $500 fines.
The Hill reports:
The House Ethics Committee announced Tuesday that it is upholding $500 fines against three additional GOP lawmakers for refusing to wear masks on the House floor while it was still required during the pandemic.
GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Thomas Massie (Ky.) and Ralph Norman (S.C.) all filed appeals against the fines that were issued in May. But they failed to persuade a majority of the panel, which is evenly split between the two parties.
These make up now the fourth, fifth, and sixth Republicans who have been fined for simply not wearing a mask on the House floor.
Four of the Representatives have even made it clear that they were in fact vaccinated when they appeared on the House floor without a mask.
Which, according to the CDC, shouldn’t be an issue at all.
Especially considering they were also giving ample social distancing space to their colleagues.
Marjorie Taylor Greene also pointed out that the Ethics Committee is obviously biased considering all but one of the committee members cosponsored the failed attempt to kick her out of Congress.
The irony in all of this is that few Congress Members or their staff are wearing masks on the floor today.
The Lockdown Left and the RINOs who played along just couldn’t stand that there were conservative Representatives who would go against the grain and think for themselves.
So they slapped them with fines while they could as the panic from the pandemic subsided.
