Massie's lapel debt clock: I wanted to 'instill anxiety among my colleagues. It’s hit the mark'

Roll Call reports, “It’s not a doomsday clock or a pedometer, though it’s been confused for both.

The copper-cased ticker affixed to Rep. Thomas Massie’s lapel is a debt clock, tracking the country’s debt in real time using a complicated algorithm of the Kentucky Republican’s design — and raising eyebrows in the process.

Since Massie, who has voiced reservations about hiking the debt ceiling, debuted the device in late January, he’s worn it around the halls of Congress, to votes and at an event in his home district…

Massie, who studied electrical and mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, first got the idea around Christmas and decided to order the parts. They include an Arduino ESP32, an advanced microcontroller that he programmed to scrub current and historic debt totals posted on the U.S. Treasury’s website to approximate the real-time debt, which exceeds $31.5 trillion and has hit the country’s statutory borrowing cap.

The difficult part of the process, Massie said, was writing the roughly 500 lines of code that feed the ticker — including programming that gives the steadily growing number a blurred effect, to hammer home the growth of the country’s mounting debt. ‘My design specification was to instill anxiety among my colleagues,’ Massie said. ‘And it’s hit the mark.’

With or without his debt clock, there’s anxiety enough to go around the Capitol regarding the debt ceiling.”

End the 'unscientific, illogical, unethical' vaccine mandate on healthcare workers

Rep. Thomas Massie delivered the following remarks on the House floor on Tuesday, January 31, opposing the ongoing vaccine mandate on healthcare workers.

“I rise in support of this resolution because it would facilitate the passage of H.R. 497, the ‘Freedom for Healthcare Workers Act.’

What does that bill do?

It ends the unscientific, illogical, immoral, unconstitutional, unethical, on healthcare workers that is predicated on lies…”

Rep. Massie listed four big lies about vaccines and mandates:

The vaccine prevents spread.

The vaccine don’t/can’t cause any harm.

The vaccine is scientific.

Ignores natural immunity.

“This is the epitome of hypocrisy. Nobody in this room was mandated to take a vaccine. And we’re voting on whether we’re going to force people who want to take care of people, whether they have to take the vaccine.

End the hypocrisy. None of us were mandated. None of the staff in this room were mandated to take a vaccine. End it now.”

Republicans introduce legislation that would end the CDC's vaccine mandate for air travel

BASEDPolitics' Brad Polumbo writes, “Most COVID-19 restrictions have long since lapsed in the US. But the Centers for Disease Control continues to require, with very narrow exceptions, that all international travelers coming to the US via air travel show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter our country.

A group of House Republicans wants to consign this mandate to the dustbin.

Rep. Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican, just introduced legislation that would override the CDC requirement and prohibit a similar requirement from being reimplemented. His legislation is co-sponsored by Republican Reps. Mary Miller, Ralph Norman, Scott Perry, Bill Posey, Greg Steube, Brian Mast, and Michael Cloud.

'If you watched C-SPAN last week, you saw 434 Members of Congress gathered in the Capitol screaming, yelling, cheering, and speaking. Many of these members are unvaccinated, and many haven’t taken boosters,' Massie said. 'So, why do we subject visitors who want to see their families to this COVID-19 double standard?'

'The CDC’s unscientific mandate is separating too many people from their families and has been doing so for far too long. It needs to end,' the congressman concluded.”
