(Big League Politics) – A group of Republicans in Congress filed a lawsuit Monday against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), calling for the agency to no longer force masks during air travel. This comes after The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced Thursday that they would extend the current forced masking order for public transportation through April 18th at the very least.
The lawsuit was brought forth by Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, who was joined by sixteen other Republicans. The lawsuit, Massie et al v. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seeks to end government-imposed rules forcing Americans to wear masks when traveling on commercial airlines.
It remains unknown how the CDC was ever able to exercise the legal authority to forcibly cover the mouths of Americans. There currently remains not a single law in the United States mandating mask-wearing on any form of public transportation.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not have the legal authority to force people traveling on commercial airlines to wear masks,” Massie said in a statement. “Congress never passed a law requiring masks on commercial flights. This lawsuit targets the faceless bureaucrats who are behind the CDC’s unscientific regulation so that this illegal mask mandate can be brought to a permanent end.”
The Daily Caller reported that House Republicans introduced a House companion to Paul’s Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that disapproves of the CDC’s mask mandate for public transportation back in February.
“I’ve been leading the charge in the Senate to end these unscientific, unconstitutional mask mandates, and am proud to continue the fight by joining Rep. Massie on this effort,” Paul said in a statement.
Congressman Massie has remained defiant in the face of draconian government rule for quite some time. The Kentucky representative famously (or notoriously depending on who is being asked) took a bold stance against Pelosi‘s continued nonsensical House mask mandate last May.
“Her rule is not based on science. All you need to know is the mask rule has only ever applied to members when they can be seen on TV!,” Massie said at the time.
