Congressman Mo Brooks has co-sponsored a bill with Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs that calls to stop Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. It bars the federal government from requiring employers to mandate vaccines or to mandating testing of employees. The mandates announced in early September state that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly. The rules affect about 80 million Americans.
In a press release, Brooks stated, “Joe Biden claims the U.S. Constitution empowers a president to mandate vaccines. He is wrong. Under the Constitution, states, not the federal government have that power. I challenge anyone to identify a provision in the U.S. Constitution that unambiguously gives Joe Biden or the federal government the authority he arrogantly claims.”
Brooks continued, “Liberty and freedom have combined to help make America the greatest nation in world history. The decision to get vaccinated against COVID-19 is a deeply personal one. Americans must weigh the risks and rewards for themselves. That is the essence of liberty and freedom. For Joe Biden to insert himself into Americans’ healthcare choices is arrogant, dictatorial, despicable and dangerous. I will protect liberty and freedom from dictatorial government oppression with every fiber of my being and every tool at my disposal.”
Other congressmen who co-sponsored the bill include Thomas Massie, Matt Rosendale, Jeff Duncan, Jody Hice, Bob Good, Louie Gohmert, Van Taylor, Jason Smith, Randy Weber, Michael Cloud, Bill Posey, Debbie Lesko, Tom McClintock, Dan Bishop, Chip Roy, Andy Harris, Mary Miller, Alex Mooney, Ralph Norman, and Lauren Boebert.
