The US Senate has relaxed its dress code and it will no longer be necessary to wear a suit and tie or suit to attend meetings. The Democratic and Republican parties are debating about this, and some people think that getting more rest doesn’t hurt. However, some people objected strongly, believing that a precedent should not be set for specific individuals.
U.S. Senator Fetterman, a Pennsylvania Democrat, often wears a hat, T-shirt, and shorts to Senate meetings. He was hospitalized for a stroke and depression, so Parliament gave him permission to wear such clothes.
However, now Senate Majority Leader Schuman has announced that clothing rules will be relaxed and casual clothing can be worn at work. Most Republican senators signed on, but there was opposition.
Senator Scott of Florida: “It has to change back where we have to be respectful and the clothes we wear have to be what people expect from a senator.”
Senator Grassley of Iowa felt disgusted, and Senator Collins of Maine joked that he would wear a bikini to the Senate meeting tomorrow.
Louisiana Senator Kennedy: “I don’t like it (the rule).”
Some Democratic senators believe there is nothing wrong with it as long as they respect the system.
CNN Reporter vs. Massachusetts Senator Warren: “Do you think it should change? I think there are a lot of other important things that need to be focused on, so I think it’s OK, as long as they don’t touch their private parts.”

But House Speaker McCarthy thought this was inappropriate.
House Speaker McCarthy: “It would be outrageous if you changed all the rules of the Senate just for one person so he could wear a tracksuit on the Senate floor.”
Fetterman, the event’s protagonist, countered that if the Republican Party does not try to shut down Congress and fully supports Ukraine, he will wear a suit next week. In the past, women in the Senate were required to wear clothing that covered their arms.
If men forgot to wear a tie, they would go and make up for it. Many people will benefit from the relaxation in dress code. People who have just got off the plane or are rushing to the venue do not need to waste time changing clothes.
