U.S. Senate Passes Bill to END Public Transportation Mask Mandate


After the TSA extended its public transportation mask mandate to April 18th, Sen. Rand Paul vowed to force a vote to end the idiotic policy.

TSA Extends Mask Mandate; Rand Paul Vows to Force Vote to End It

A TSA official said it would leave the mask mandate in place until at least April 18th, citing the CDC’s recommendation.

The U.S. Senate on Tuesday voted to end the public transportation mask mandate, and it passed on a vote of 57-40.

The bill moves to the House of Representatives, where it should be a tougher challenge to pass the measure.

I’m not convinced Democrats want to completely relinquish COVID theater, despite receiving a memo to declare “victory” over COVID.

“It’s Time for Democrats to Take Credit for Ending the COVID Crisis Phase,” Says Democratic PR Firm Memo

As noted, Biden vowed to veto the bill:

The repeal vote fell shy of the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override a Biden veto. The White House said Tuesday “circumstances under which masks should be required in these settings should be guided by science, not politics.”

Eight Democrats joined all but one Republican – Senator Mitt Romney – in voting to reject the rule.

Democratic Senator Tim Kaine said the vote was dangerous because it would not only bar the existing CDC order but prevent the agency from imposing future mask rules.

Honestly, I don’t think the bill generates enough support to pass in the House or override a veto in the Senate.

But maybe the Biden administration and CDC will fold to the increasing pressure against extending the useless mask mandate.
