THIS IS REAL: TX Dem Who Flew Mask-Less to DC Says Masks ‘Play a Critical Role’ in Stopping COVID

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.21

A Texas Democrat who flew mask-less aboard a private jet to Washington, DC is now calling on Governor Greg Abbott to impose new COVID regulations, saying the face coverings “play a critical role” in stopping the pandemic.

“W/ classes starting next month it’s time to stop political games. Families deserve clear guidance & policies to keep students, teachers & staff safe. Most students haven’t received vaccine, masks must play a critical role. Abbott should lift ban & let school set rules,” posted Rep. Donna Howard.

“We need to follow the science here. Texas needs to change course and allow for universal mask-wearing to prevent spread of the highly contagious delta variant, esp as children under 12 cannot get vaccinated yet,” she added.

At least six members of the Texas delegation have tested positive for COVID since arriving at the nation’s capital.

Economists say their trip to Washington will cost taxpayers at least $1.5 million in additional costs.

 

BACKFIRE: White House Says Kamala Harris Took COVID Test After Meeting with TX Dems in DC

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.21.21

Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly took a COVID-19 test after being exposed to the virus by a group of Texas Democrats in DC to block a voting integrity bill making its way through the State Capitol in Austin.

“Harris held a meeting last week with the state lawmakers, who traveled to Washington, D.C., to stymie Texas Republicans’ elections reform bill. Five of the Democrats have tested positive so far, including state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, who confirmed that he had tested positive despite being fully vaccinated,” reports The Hill.

 

Texas Democrats confirmed this week that their colleagues’ escape to Washington, DC in a last-ditch effort to derail a voting integrity bill will cost Lone Star taxpayers $1.5 million in additional costs.

“Texas state Rep. Armando Walle (D) told NBC News that the price of keeping the Democratic lawmakers out of Texas until Aug. 7, when the session ends, could be as high as $1.5 million,” reports The Hill. “He said the two private jets most of the lawmakers flew on to Washington cost more than $100,000. Fees for housing, food and other transportation are expected to make up the majority of the remaining expenses.

In addition to the increased cost, at least five members of the Democrat delegation tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in the nation’s capital.
