Congressman Barry Loudermilk of Georgia’s 11th Congressional district is calling on Democratic leadership to open the U.S. Capitol. The building has been closed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Loudermilk and seven of his colleagues penned a letter to Pelosi asserting that the continued closure is a ‘failure of leadership’ and ‘contrary to science of COVID-19.’
In a recent tweet, Loudermilk said, “Despite Washington, D.C. lifting all capacity restrictions and the city being 100% open, @SpeakerPelosi continues to keep the House of Representatives closed to the American people. This letter urges Speaker Pelosi to end the political charades and open up the People’s House now.”
