(TheConservativeNews.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is causing uproar among Conservatives once again. This time, the issue at hand is that of mask mandates. Last week, Pelosi made mask-wearing compulsory on the House floor, regardless of vaccination status. The Speaker alleges this is necessary because of the spread of the Delta variant of the virus, but numerous senior Republicans have accused her of using this as an excuse to consolidate her power in the chamber.
On Thursday, July 29, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) joined this chorus of conservative voices. She posted a video on Twitter where she’s walking around the Capitol building without a mask, and invites Speaker Pelosi to “come and get me.” The accompanying tweet accuses Pelosi of trying to orchestrate an “insane power grab.”
In the video, Rep. Mace stresses she has had two vaccinations and also previously contracted the virus. She says she’s remaining socially distant from others, is regularly washing her hands, and is even wearing a mask on the chamber floor. However, she says she will continue to refuse to wear a mask elsewhere in the building.
Among other Republicans to take a stand on this issue was Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who said Pelosi would have to have his entire staff arrested if she wanted to enforce the mandate. It’s encouraging to see Conservatives refusing to toe the line on this issue.
