pipedreams Posted August 31, 2021 Share Posted August 31, 2021 *** UPDATE— "Rep. Brian Mast (R), a wounded combat veteran from Afghanistan, tells The Floridian that during a Republican-only “moment of silence,” Speaker Pelosi refused to recognize them to” read names or bring up bills or anything.” “We gaveled in, had a prayer, said the Pledge of Allegiance, took a moment of silence with pretty much all Republican veterans, then asked to be recognized to read names and bring up Afghanistan legislation. They did not acknowledge us, and just closed the House down,” said Rep. Mast. Another combat veteran, Rep. Greg Steube (R), also expressed his disgust for Pelosi refusing to let him and his Republican colleagues read the names. “House Democrats just refused to recognize Republican veterans on the House Floor to read the names of our fallen service members in Afghanistan. That’s how far our nation has fallen,” tweeted Rep. Steube. How badly do Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats want to cover up this Afghanistan debacle?" https://floridianpress.com/2021/08/pelosi-blocks-names-of-13-service-members-killed-from-being-read/ 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
