11. Need to extend it beyond the House floor

to the Capitol Complex, since the latest infections came not from the floor, but from the 'undisclosed location' where they were corralled together.

This is a good start, though, and well within her purview. The extension to the rest of the complex will probably require legislation.

but better late than never. You'd think republicans would have enough intelligence to protect their health and the health of others, but you'd be wrong about that. Small children know enough to comply, but the GOP is so contrarian to everything that's good for them, you have to hit them in the head with a sledgehammer to get anything done.

50. Perfectly justified. There is a Congresswoman fighting for her life right now because of the GOP

maskholes.

If I were a member of Congress, evacuated to a safe place, and ran into these Republicans refusing to wear masks, I would have surely been expelled from Congress for my actions in response.

People are dying by the thousands, and not wearing a mask around others is no different than pointing a gun in someone's face.

Your breath is a lethal weapon. Keep it under control.
