It’s hard to believe that Republican House Oversight Chairman James Comer, and Democrat D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser have anything in common – but they do – and on the other side is Democrat President Joe Biden.
Just this month Biden finally called on federal agencies to “aggressively execute” plans to get employees back to in-person work this fall after three plus years of working remotely due to COVID-19.
Bowser has been influential in this decision, making an unexpected ultimatum to Biden and his federal employees in January of this year during her inauguration address. She told Biden, “Get your employees back to in-person work – or else vacate your lifeless downtown office buildings so we can fill the city with people again.”
For those of us who thought we may never agree with Bowser – this was a welcome surprise.
