U.S. Senators Introduce National Face Mask Legislation

OPINION: The United States could soon look like a Middle Eastern country if two U.S. Senate Democrats have their way.

Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) introduced legislation that would “require states to implement mask mandates.”

The two leftist lawmakers introduced the “Encouraging Masks for All Act” on the day before Thanksgiving — hoping that the average American would not notice.

Well, we noticed.

The legislation has nothing to do with public safety, but it has everything to do with controlling the American people. We’re one step closer to requiring our citizens wear mandatory head coverings in public.

“Masks and face coverings are the essential public health tool to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic” said Senator Markey. “Our legislation would move us closer to goal of ensuring universal mask adoption during these dangerous winter months. It would also ensure that essential workers in transit, health care, and retail settings all over the country are protected with face masks. Mask up.”

The fact is that most Americans are wearing masks and there are many medical experts who contend that the masks are not protecting you or your family from the China Virus.

“Wearing a mask should be considered a moral and health mandate—our primary defense against the coronavirus,” said Senator Blumenthal. “With cases skyrocketing as we head into the holidays, the Encouraging Masks for All Act would bring us closer to ensuring every American has a face mask and wears it.”

The legislation provides an additional $5 billion to the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund available to states who implement masking requirements. States can use this additional funding for efforts to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus.

Let me make a bold prediction: should the Democrats steal the U.S. Senate races in Georgia – this legislation will become the law of the land.

Is that the kind of America you want your kids to grow up in?
