Cruz to Shun CDC Guidance, Will No Longer Mask Up in Senate

(USA Features) Sen. Ted Cruz declared this week he will no longer wear a mask while in the Senate, claiming that because he’s been vaccinated for COVID-19 there is no longer any health reason to do so.

“At this point, I’ve been vaccinated. Everybody working in the Senate has been vaccinated,” Cruz said, according to CNN.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats have implemented a mask mandate in that chamber, subjecting members to fines if they do not wear one while on the House floor.

The Senate does not have a similar requirement, CNN reported.

During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, the Texas Republican said that masks would become mandatory “for the next 300 years,” according to CNN.

Meanwhile, GOP Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who was the first one in his chamber to contract COVID, also refuses to mask up. He has argued that his antibodies are sufficient to protect him and others.

Paul has also been an outspoken critic of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head immunologist in the U.S. and chief medical adviser to the Biden administration.

“Fauci continues to ignore 100 years of vaccine science. His only real theme is “do what I say” even when it makes no sense. If you’ve recovered or been vaccinated – go about your life. Eat, drink, work, open the schools. Enough with the petty tyrants!” he tweeted earlier this week along with a video clip of Fauci doing an interview.

That said, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend that even Americans who have had the disease or the vaccine mask up in certain circumstances, such as when they are around unvaccinated people.

  2. I feel kind of pissed at Cruz but he is better than any communist and he does pretty much say what he wants and that pisses of the communists and that is good enough for me .The one I would like to beat is Lis Chenny the Wyoming Bitch. and Romney the Utah idiot.

  3. Ted Cruz has to do something dramatic to save himself after back stabbing President Trump, and taking off to Mexico during the worst winter storm in Texas in decades. He would have stayed down in old Mexico if not for one of his staffers calling him and saying the optics looks bad, and there is some talk going around how he has abandon Texas when they need him etc… . Ted Cruz is part of the problem in the Republican Party, not part of the solution. He is an Elite, who is self serving, a master liar, and a disloyal person.
