Kudos to Senator John Thune for forcing a vote last night on terminating and banning Biden’s Head Start mask mandate for pre-schoolers.
The World Health Organization has always opposed masking small children, there is no evidence of any benefit and the harms of disrupting normal life and the development of communication and language skills in this age group are considerable.
The seven Democrats voting YES to ban Biden’s preschooler mask mandate: Cortez Masto, Kelly, Manchin, Ossoff, Rosen, Sinema, and Tester.
Every Republican voted yes, even Romney!
We’ve put together a summary of the last five Senate COVID votes here:
Nancy Pelosi has not allowed any of these Covid mandate bills to come up for even a vote in the House. All the more reason to take the gavel away from her in November.
