Mask Mandates are Coming

JUICE—With COVID-19 virus cases surging across the nation, Democrats are now beginning to make the case for mask mandates. President Joe Biden is strongly hinting at the mandate, as are progressives like State Rep. Anna Eskamani, who recently posted a comment from a mother in Orlando whose three kids want to return to school safely in the fall.

Rep. Eskamani's posting is in response to an Orlando Sentinel story based on the concerns of a few parents who support a mask mandate.

Republicans are pushing back at the mask mandates, saying that Democrats want to live in a perpetual pandemic for political expediency.

All this comes as the CDC released a recommendation that all vaccinated Americans should mask up if they are in a closed quarter environment.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has already vowed to keep Florida maskless, but local Democratic leadership could eventually follow the federal government's lead if the mandate comes down.


Mas Cuba Libre!

Republicans continue expressing their support for the Cuban people, holding rallies in Washington to help bring attention to the plight of the protestors and millions of victims on the island of Cuba.

This past Tuesday, the ACU put on an event on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol to do just that.

Everyone from Sen. Rick Scott to Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart and Kat Cammack, were in attendance to show their support. Rep. Cammack went as far as to question President Biden’s “moral compass” on the issue. READ MORE

Marco Rubio -If over 99% of Covid deaths are among the unvaccinated how does forcing the vaccinated to wear a mask make any sense? And if you thought it was hard to convince people to get vaccinated before, imagine now that being vaccinated still means wearing a mask

Rep. Ted Deutch-This is sickening. A Nazi swastika scratched into a State Department elevator. Thank you @SecBlinken for condemning this "abhorrent" antisemitic vandalism.I strongly urge the Administration to swiftly name the Special Envoy to combat global antisemitism.

US Rep Kathy Castor -#SolvingTheClimateCrisis is our opportunity to create good-paying union jobs, rebuild our economy, and leave our children a healthier planet

Gus Bilirakis -The free flow of drugs along our southern border is fueling a surge in overdoses throughout the country and here at home. We must secure our border now! #BidenBorderCrisis
