Sen. Dianne Feinstein called on the Senate on Thursday to support an amendment to the next coronavirus relief bill that would bar states that do not implement mask mandates from receiving stimulus funding.

In a statement from the senator’s office, Feinstein announced her intention to introduce the amendment and stated that it was time for Congress to step in and force states to implement such mandates to stop the virus from spreading.

“Wearing masks in public should be mandatory. Period. [Senate Majority] Leader [Mitch] McConnell [R-Ky.] said the Senate will take up the next coronavirus economic relief bill later this month. At that time, I intend to offer an amendment to prohibit sending funds to states that haven’t adopted a statewide mask requirement,” said Feinstein, a member of the Senate Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration.

“My hope has been that other governors would show the leadership to institute their own mask mandates, but so far that hasn’t happened. It’s time for Congress to step in. This is a matter of life or death, and partisan politics shouldn’t play a role,” she added.

    • Don’t worry, Feinstein is included in Trump’s “I caught the swamp. I caught them all.”

  1. While You are at it dear Sen.

    Please contemplate Payment withholding from US Lawmakers who’s PERSONAL DRIVER was Spying for China over the course of a decade !
    With multiple heads up from the FBI to boot !

    Oh Frankenstein, that would be YOU.

    Utterly disgraceful.

  2. Maybe Congress should withhold federal aid from states that allowed the “protests” to get out of hand and did nothing to arrest the organizers.

  3. Funny how those who don’t believe in covid-19 and believe in free market would like to get covid-19 support money extracted from taxpayers.

    • Vaxxer, Covid-19 support has nothing to if you believe it or not. Why shouldn’t the govt pay citizens who can’t go out to work because the govt wants to keep them locked up for their political motives?

      • Oh really? Do you mean that people did not keep working? and providing necessary and useful products and services? Maybe it is time you understand the difference between working and getting a paycheck.

          • Only when I have to meet with people who are keen to infect me. I also use a face shield on top of the mask, which makes it apparent their spit, and as soon as they are out the door, I show it to every other colleague. By the way you have an “interesting” avatar, may I ask what it represents?

  4. Yeah lets keep politics out of it : I suppose proposing an ammendment she knows very well has zero chance of passing for purely political purposes is called keeping the politics out of it. In any case the whole thing is a joke because mask mandates are virtually impossible to enforce in practice and every attempt to enforce them just leads to problems (like discriminatory enforcement, escalating into violence, ticketing someone who adjusted the mask for one second etc.) politicians should all be encouraging masks and i believe they are but mandates are just a game that leads to all sorts of problems.

  5. She should cover her mouth witha mask. Really tightly. This way it might prevent some of her stupidity from coming out.
