(TargetLiberty.org) – Democrats love to tell Republicans they need to follow the science on COVID-19. However, when a group of Republican lawmakers tried to follow the CDC’s latest guidelines on mask-wearing this week, they were immediately fined for not obeying different rules made up by a senior Democrat.
On May 18, three representatives – Brian Mast (R-FL), Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) were each fined $500 by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) after they appeared on the House floor without masks. The three were part of a larger group taking part in a maskless demonstration, now that the CDC has ruled that anyone who’s fully vaccinated doesn’t need to wear a mask or social distance. However, Pelosi has refused to relax her mask mandate.
The mask rebellion begins in Congress. GOP members defying Nancy Pelosi's mask rule and accompanying fine threat:

Seven other Republicans were given warnings at Tuesday’s protest; if they break Pelosi’s outdated rule again, they could also be fined. Pelosi was asked a month ago to drop her mask requirements, but she’s not listening – to the science or anything else.
