Yesterday Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene ranted on a show called Real America’s Voice with David Brody.
Host David Brody played a video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) questioning whether some members could be taken at their word that they’d been vaccinated against Covid-19. A survey released last week showed that fewer than half of House Republicans had received the vaccine. Pelosi has said the House’s mask mandate will remain until more members of vaccinated.
That didn’t sit well with Greene, who ripped into Pelosi, pointing out that earlier in the day the Speaker was seen at the White House not wearing a mask. Pelosi is fully vaccinated, as are President Joe Biden and several hundred White House employees.
Nancy Pelosi is enjoying herself mask-free at the White House while she’s running a tyrannical, oppressive workplace here at the House of Representatives, forcing us to wear masks, abusing our individual freedoms, demanding that members of Congress get the Covid vaccine, which is still not approved by the FDA by the way and you can’t even demand to know people’s private medical records. So our vaccine history is none of her business. As a matter of fact, it’s a violation of our HIPAA rights for her to demand to know.
As for HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), it is impossible for Pelosi or any other non-healthcare provider to violate the act, which prohibits medical providers from disclosing private medical information.
This woman is mentally ill. You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.
On Thursday, the congresswoman posted an Instagram video of herself shredding a letter from William J. Walker, the House’s sergeant-at-arms, informing her that further violations of the House’s mask mandate would result in a $500 fine, then a $2,500 fine for subsequent infractions. In the video’s caption, Greene accused Pelosi of “putting our Constitution through a paper shredder.”
Greene is one of seven Republican lawmakers issued a warning over their failure to wear masks, the Associated Press reported. The others were Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Chip Roy and Louie Gohmert of Texas, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Bob Good of Virginia and Mary Miller of Illinois.
Dr. Brian Monahan, the Capitol’s attending physician, said in a statement on Wednesday the House floor’s mask mandate would remain in place “until all members and floor staff are fully vaccinated.”
Brian Mast of Florida, Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa and Beth Van Duyne of Texas have already been fined $500.
