House Democrats vent frustration after Biden’s reversal of COVID-19 emergency measure

House Democrats are softening against the White House after President Biden indicated he will sign legislation lifting the national COVID-19 emergency declaration — a move that came less than two months after Democrats en masse opposed at the administration’s request had protested the same measure.

Nearly 200 House Democrats had voted against the Republican proposal for an immediate lifting of the emergency decree on Feb. 1 after the White House warned it would “create widespread chaos and insecurity throughout the healthcare system.” Administration officials said they needed a longer settlement window and would unilaterally remove the designation on May 11. It passed the House 229-197 with 11 Democrats voting in favour.
