Democrats abolish jackets and ties in Senate



U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has decided to abolish tuxedos in the Senate.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has decided to abolish tuxedos in the Senate.

U.S. senators will now be able to wear whatever they want after Democrats lifted the jacket-and-tie requirement, but that’s not to everyone’s taste.

Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that the unspoken dress code, which was announced as being repealed on Sunday, no longer needs to be enforced.

But some lawmakers, especially Republicans, see this as an affront to civility.

This rule applies to everyone, but for Democratic Sen. John Fetterman, a lover of shorts and hoodies, it fits like a glove. The style of clothing that became his signature during his senatorial campaign.

Schumer said senators can wear whatever they want, but he will continue to wear a suit.

The new rules have drawn derision from the right.

Republican Susan Collins joked on NBC that she was going to wear a “bikini.”

“I think the Senate has a certain dignity that should be maintained, and I think that eliminating the dress code would degrade the Senate.”

Republican Sen. Bill Hagerty told Fox Business that the move is “another step in the Democratic effort to transform America and take us to a far less respectful place than we have historically been.” he said.

Fellow Wyoming Republican Cynthia Lummis lamented the decision, which “disgraces” a prestigious body with powers such as removing presidents, confirming Supreme Court justices and ratifying international treaties.

“We should be respectful and have a little bit of civility,” Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall said.

His North Dakota colleague Kevin Cramer denounced the attempt to “turn the United States Senate into a sports bar.”

For Fetterman, on the other hand, it’s a positive because it gives the chamber, whose average age is over 65, “a little more freedom,” estimating that “the right seems to be losing its mind” on the issue. There is.

The House and Senate have loosened rules in recent years to allow women to wear sleeveless dresses.

And in 2019, the House of Representatives gave the green light to a religious headdress that would allow the Islamic veil worn by Rep. Ilhan Omar.
