Democrats Are Petrified Now DNC Boss Says, ‘I’m Completely Over Mask…
It’s amazing how when an election is on the line “science” gets thrown completely out of the window.
The chair of the House Democrats’ campaign wing and other members are petrified about the midterm elections and are trying to put distance between them and the Biden Administration.
“I’m completely over mask mandates,” Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told Axios. “I don’t think they make any sense anymore. I’m for whatever gets rid of mask mandates as quickly as possible.”
“I think you’re safer on an airplane than you are in a restaurant or at the gym, so I don’t know why we’re wearing masks in the air,” he added.
Additionally, eight Democrats voted in favor of eliminating Biden’s public transit mandate.
Eight Democrats voted for the resolution, including Sens. Catherine Cortez-Masto (D-Nev.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) and Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) — some of the most vulnerable incumbents this midterm cycle.
The others were Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), mostly centrists facing re-election in 2024.
Asked if the House will vote on the mask resolution, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, demurred. “I don’t know the answer to that,” he said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t comment if there will be a vote on the resolution but members of the House worried about the midterms really wish she would.
“I would vote for that,” Rep. Susan Wild (D-Pa.) told Axios. She argued that localities and airlines “can make that decision for themselves.”
“If, based on science, [airplanes are] just as safe as anywhere else, then we should be considering it,” said Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.).
“People are ready and are armed with the information they need to protect themselves,” said Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.). “I think we ought to consider it, the question is: when?”
Now all of a sudden Democrats what to stay out of “issues of science.”
“I think the House should stay out of issues of science, generally speaking,” Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn) said.
It was all theater folks, for two years they tried to control every aspect of our lives and now they are trying to pretend it never happened.
