On Wednesday the Senate voted 52-48 to repeal Joe Biden’s controversial and unconstitutional vaccine mandate for private businesses with the aid of two Democrats.
Democrat Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana crossed the aisle to side with the Republicans and voted to overturn Biden’s mandate.
“I’m not crazy about mandates,” Tester told NBC News before the vote, later calling the federal requirements “burdensome regulations.”
However, the resolution will likely be blocked by the Democrat-controlled House.
The resolution was introduced by Republican Mike Braun who argued that Biden had no authority to impose such requirements on private businesses. The repeal was brought to the Senate floor under the “Congressional Review Act,” which allows Congress to review presidential executive orders.
He took to Twitter to celebrate the victory for all of who would be affected by such a tyrannical mandate.
“I want to go off script for a second and emphasize how important the vaccine is, especially booster shots for the omicron variant,” Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., told reporters Wednesday, shortly before the vote. “But the mandate is going to backfire. The people that have thus far have not gotten, have not received the vaccine are not going to do it until this White House acknowledges natural immunity.”
This is just a small victory though. The house is largely Democrat-controlled and we know how the Democrats love telling us small people what to do with our lives, including what medical procedures we should have done. In order for the repeal to go through, Republicans would need a solid number of Democrats to do what’s right and cross the aisle to agree that we deserve medical freedom.
If the House were to pass the resolution, it would then go to Biden’s desk. The White House has signaled that Biden would veto the measure, which did not pass with a veto-proof majority in the Senate.
According to MSN:
Biden in September unveiled his vaccination-or-testing mandate for businesses with at least 100 employees, as well as a vaccination requirement for federal contractors, to increase the country’s Covid vaccination rate.
An estimated 76 percent of Americans ages 5 and older have had at least one vaccine dose, federal data show. As of Tuesday, the U.S. was averaging about 1.8 million doses a day, according to NBC News data.
Federal courts have blocked enforcement of the vaccination mandates, with some judges saying Biden may have exceeded his authority.
“The president of the United States cannot reach into every company and pick and choose who he wants hired and fired,” said Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla.
Democrats have argued that GOP opposition to the mandate is driving anti-vaccination sentiment in some parts of the country, undermining the country’s response to the pandemic.
“We understand the power of our words in this place,” Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said on the Senate floor before the vote. “Republicans know that when they come down to the floor and attack the vaccine mandate day after day after day, they know they are giving fuel to the fire of the anti-vaccine campaign.”
He went on to say it’s “strange” for GOP senators “to suggest that there’s no connection between the anti-vaccination campaign in this country and those that are every single day on the floor of the Senate talking about how dangerous it is to require that people in this country get the vaccine. There is a connection.”
Former vice president Joe Biden and other Democrats and Rinos can continue screaming to the sky that they will mandate the vaccine, that does not mean we will comply.
Judges continue to rule against these mandates.
Judge Terry A. Doughty in the U.S. District Court Western District of Louisiana ruled in favor of a request from Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry to block an emergency regulation issued Nov. 4 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that required vaccines for nearly every full-time employee, part-time employee, volunteer, and contractor working at a wide range of healthcare facilities receiving Medicaid or Medicaid funding.
Louisiana was joined in the lawsuit by attorneys general in 13 other states.
OSHA also rescinded its mandate after being ruled against.
