Only 50 House members may get to attend President Joe Biden's first State of the Union address as the Omicron surge has resulted in 24 lawmakers getting COVID in one month. On Tuesday, Axios reported that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told colleagues that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned him that she may limit the number of attendees from the House to 25 members per party. Biden will deliver his State of the Union address on March 1. (Photos) McCarthy told Republican leadership about Pelosi's plans - and they were frustrated by them. McCarthy pointed out that Democrats fly on airplanes with more people than who will be

1st response should be immediate...100% attendance or zero. Let HIM do it from his custom built taxpayer funded studio set. NOT the "Hallowed Historic Halls" of the Congress. Slight adjustment...NO Concresscritter that has VOTED by proxy will be allowed to attend no matter what.

I'm sure all of the Republicans would love to have that night off -- rather than waste all that time listening to a doddering old senile man mess up the speech his handlers will be writing for him!!! Maybe President Trump can have a rally that night, and they can all go attend that. It will certainly be a lot more fun!!!

Oh, wait, I finally got it. She was only able to find 25 lie-beral Demon-Rats from "safe" districts that aren't up for re-election in November. This way, all the Demon-Rats running in the fall don't have to be seen with Senile Joe biden. They are going to do everything they can to keep biden away from all of the "at risk" Demon-Rats -- which may be all of them given how terrible biden and the Demon-Rats are destroying this republic!!! I'm guessing it will be pretty funny over on the Republican side finding out which 25 have to attend this snooze-fest!!! It would suck to draw that short straw!!!

Biden’s handlers and Pelosi probably are afraid that Biden will catch COVID if some wimpy Republican congressperson coughs near him. I agree with other posters that the wimpy Republicans should stay away.

No doubt Biden will falsely claim in his State of the Union speech that he has created more U.S. jobs then any past US President. The reason that Biden claim is false is that the vast majority of those US jobs were were created before the COVID pandemic hit, and over the last few months are being refilled, most times by the same people who held those jobs before the pandemic started.

The Republicans should show up in mass for this to boo every line. Force Pelosi to let them stay or have cancel this nationally televised event at the very last minute.

What if they gave a SOTU address and nobody came? Better still, why not mock up that studio set across the street from the White House and make it look like the U.S. House chamber? Put in a full House background of cardboard cutout figures, Sgt. Pepper's style, and do the address incognito under a stage name, in aviator shades, taking frequent licks from a cone of chocolate ice cream. Go all the way.

Not attending displays lack of respect for the Congressional offices they hold. Many of their constituents will look to see if their representative is present. If half or two-thirds of the dems' seats are empty, all the more reason for the Republicans to fill their seats. The contrast will be striking. Self-respecting political office holders should show respect for the Office of President of the United States, while respectfully tearing into the doddering old fool who occupies it by reason of voter fraud.

If Nancy does not like the Republican members chosen to attend will she tell them no and select her own Republican choices?

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of polls. For one, I’ve never been polled by anyone. For another, the number of people being polled often strikes me as too small a sample from which to draw broad conclusions. Also, those samples more often than not tend to oversample one group, Democrats, let’s say, over another group, which again leads to questions of accuracy. Bottom line, I don’t trust ‘em and tend to ignore them in preference to the only poll that actually counts, the election itself. I’ve often asked myself, what would I do if I were to be contacted to participate in a poll.
