Several GOP lawmakers refused to comply with the newly reinstated mask requirement on the House side of the Capitol on Wednesday, putting themselves at risk of having to pay hefty fines as punishment.

More than half a dozen Republicans refused to wear masks on the House floor, including Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Chip Roy (Texas), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mary Miller (Ill.) and Andrew Clyde (Ga.).

The article goes on to state the following:

Most of the 211 House Republicans did comply with wearing masks on the House floor after the Capitol physician announced late Tuesday night that they would once again be mandatory amid spread of the highly contagious delta variant of COVID-19.

Rep. Chip Roy of Texas gave a fiery speech on the House floor Wednesday, slamming Pelosi and the Democrats for forcing vaccinated congress members to mask up while there is a catastrophe on the southern border.

“We have a crisis at our border and we are playing footsie with mask mandates in the people’s house,” Roy declared. “It’s absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the people’s house. It’s an embarrassment, a mockery, and the American people are fed up. They want to go back to life. They want to go back to business. They want to go back to school without their children being forced to wear masks, to be put in the corner, to have mental health issues.”

WATCH:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced on Wednesday that she is filing a lawsuit against the House Speaker, referring to the ‘unconstitutional mask mandate.’

“Americans are sick & tired of being political pawns,” Greene tweeted. “We’re fighting to stop it, that’s why we’re suing Pelosi.”

Greene also clapped back at Pelosi for calling House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a ‘moron’ for claiming the mandate defies science.

“Look at this maskless moron not social distancing while calling someone a moron for rejecting her mask mandate,” Greene wrote in response to the clip.

Rep. Jim Jordan posted a clip of Fauci to Twitter at the start of the pandemic, admitting that masks do not provide protection from the virus, which was also retweeted by Rep. Lauren Boebert.

“We might as well start calling this a Perma-demic,” Boebart also tweeted Wednesday. “Permanent masking. Permanent state of emergency. Permanent control.”

“This will go on until the American people just say enough is enough. The tyrants aren’t giving this up!”

According to the report, Reps. Jared Huffman [D] and Byron Donalds [R] erupted into a shouting match in the halls of Congress over the mandate.

While wearing a mask, Huffman reportedly confronted Donalds and called him ‘selfish’ because he wasn’t wearing a mask.

The report adds that Donalds replied, “What are you doing? Mind your business. Leave me alone.”

Donalds has chosen to remain unvaccinated because he already contracted the virus, resulting in immunity. However, the CDC recommends vaccines for those who already had the virus to arguably ‘ensure maximum protection.’

“The CDC can recommend all they want. But that’s still my choice as a human being about what I’m going to put into my body. You’re talking to someone who doesn’t get flu shots. Why? Because I don’t want to put flu vaccines into my body,” Donalds said.

“The real epidemic in America is liberals continuing to tell free people how to think,” Donalds later tweeted after the spat between lawmakers. “Jared, mind your business and I’ll mind mine.”

In response to the mask mandate, Rep. Andy Biggs called out Pelosi as an ‘anti-vaxxer’ in a tweet on Wednesday, since she “thinks the vaccine doesn’t work.”

Biggs also slammed the CDC for revising their guidance on masks, referring to them as a ‘joke.’

“The new mask guidance is nothing more than an attempt by swampy bureaucrats to distract you from Biden’s failed presidency,” Biggs also wrote.
