Nancy Pelosi blocked and refused to allow the names of the 13 Marines to be read on the House Floor. Several Congressmen spoke out against Pelosi’s decision.

Congressman Carlos A. Gimenez tweeted: “How badly do Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats want to cover up this Afghanistan debacle? They just blocked Members of Congress from reading the names of the service members who sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan last week.”

Rep Brian Mast also spoke out after Pelosi’s move:

“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.”

Rep. Greg Steube:

“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.”

GOP leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted out last night that he had requested a moment of silence and reading of the names:

“I have requested to read the names and hold a moment of silence for the 13 fallen service members when Congress convenes tomorrow morning. I hope Speaker Pelosi recognizes my request and that the People’s House will honor these heroes as soon as possible.”

Shame on Pelosi!
