(AmericanProsperity.com) – As the Delta variant of COVID-19 becomes the predominant strain of coronavirus in the United States, Democrats are using it as an excuse to reimpose mask mandates. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) led the charge this week after asking all guests, including fully vaccinated ones, to don their masks at the Capitol once again.
On Wednesday, July 21, Pelosi chose to ask guests at a Capitol event to wear masks after one of her fully vaccinated staffers contracted the virus last week. By doing so, Pelosi ignored the science showing that the two most popular vaccines are 95% and 94.5% effective in preventing symptomatic disease.
Even the Capitol’s attending physician is using the Delta variant to push lawmakers to get the jab and wear a mask even if they’re fully vaccinated, contrary to the CDC’s current guidelines. Forbes politics reporter Andrew Solender shared the letter on Twitter:

This latest power grab by Pelosi came after three Republicans failed to appeal fines they received earlier this year for not wearing a mask on the House floor according to Pelosi’s rules. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is encouraging children to mask up again and considering a nationwide mask mandate. These statements from our nation’s top lawmakers make us wonder, when will the government overreach end?
