The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the mask guidance earlier this week, recommending that individuals, including those fully vaccinated, wear a mask indoors. The new guidance is a reversal of previous assertions that concluded fully vaccinated individuals were free to not wear masks. The CDC is now concerned about the Delta variant, but the decision is a major reversal for President Joe Biden. 

The president vowed that Americans would be mandated to wear masks in the first 100 days of his administration. He challenged Americans to carry out their "patriotic duty" by masking up in that timeframe. Six months into his term, Biden has brought masks back.

On Capitol Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also ignoring obvious scientific evidence and forcing all members, staff, Capitol Police, and visitors to mask up in the complex. Those who refuse to comply are subject to arrest.

Oddly enough, only the House has brought back a mask mandate thus far. On the other side of the Capitol, the Senate has not.
