Biden Triggers GOP Backlash with Federal Mask Mandate Extension; WTF: Mitt Romney Just Voted To Keep Masking Two-Year-Olds , and other C-Virus related stories

Biden triggers GOP backlash with federal mask mandate extension:
The Biden administration announced an extension to the federal mask mandate for airplanes, airports, and public transit, upsetting a host of critics who cheered the end of COVID-19 restrictions in blue states and public buildings.
President Joe Biden conducted a mask-optional State of the Union address, and the White House went maskless days later as the nation began moving out of the panic phase of the pandemic. Nonetheless, passengers in almost anything but a private vehicle will be required to wear a mask until at least April 18, the fourth extension of a mandate introduced soon after Biden took office.
Criticism among GOP circles was swift.
“Apparently government doesn't want to relinquish its power and plans to extend the mask mandate on planes & public transportation," Sen. Rand Paul, a noted restriction critic, tweeted when the news broke. "Not on my watch! I'll be forcing a vote next week to end this unscientific mandate.” --->READ MORE HERE
Mitt Romney Just Voted To Keep Masking Two-Year-Olds:
Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah voted with a room filled with several bare-faced Democrats on Tuesday to keep the federal mask mandates for toddlers as young as two years old.
During a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions hearing over the bipartisan PREVENT Pandemics Act, Romney voted no to lifting mask and jab mandates in the federal Head Start program.
The current U.S. Department of Health and Human Services standards for the Head Start program require “universal masking for all individuals two years of age and older” and Covid-19 jab proof for all adults involved in the program. --->READ MORE HERE
