As we told you last night, the U.S. Capitol physician now considers it safe enough for members of Congress to attend President Biden‚Äôs State of the Union speech tomorrow night maskless. On the topic of lifting mandates, the coincidental timing just keeps on coming:
Our top priority has always been keeping kids in school and making sure our classrooms are safe.
Now, with COVID cases declining by 98% since the Omicron peak and updated @CDCgov guidance in place, we will lift the statewide school mask requirement this coming Wednesday. pic.twitter.com/WQ5NJKbF98

As she starts taking a victory lap this week, remember she sat on this for 48 hours while chilling in Florida just to squeeze a couple extra days of torture into kids so masks could come off on the the day of Biden's State of the Union. https://t.co/oHMinBIeuX

Hopefully the Democratic Governors Association members had fun at their meeting in Florida.

Lie. Polling suggested you best lift the mandates & just in time for the State of the Union. Thanks all goes to the parents who advocated for children‚Äôs rights for almost 2 years now. The parents who were silent while kids suffered will have to live with themselves.
