(ConservativeInsider.org) – Democrats used the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to grab as much power as possible. From mask mandates to corporate bailouts, they were determined to make Americans rely on the government and to force their views onto the nation. Yet, as the pandemic comes to a close, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against the power-hungry politicians, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
The Senate quickly updated its policies to reflect the new rules after the CDC updated its guidelines for fully vaccinated Americans on May 13. Yet, Pelosi refused to update the House of Representatives’ rules and even fined Representative Brian Mast (R-FL) $500 for not wearing a mask on the House Floor, despite the fact he was “in full compliance” with CDC guidelines.
Mast called Pelosi out on her ridiculous stance, stating that her mask mandate “has always been about power and control.” Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) also called her out on Twitter:
Nancy Pelosi is fining *vaccinated* Republicans for not wearing masks.

Democrats have been asking Americans to “trust the science” all year, yet they refuse to do so now. For Speaker Pelosi, it’s time she acknowledges her power kick is over and to let lawmakers show their faces once again.
