Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Monday concluded that U.S. health agencies’ past guidance on masks was “always about power,” citing the reactions of “some Democrats,” whom he said are “mad about the CDC’s new mask guidance.”
“Some Democrats are mad about the CDC’s new mask guidance. Just shows it was never about ‘the science.’ It was always about power,” the Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee said:
