WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement on voting for the Congressional Review Act resolution to invalidate President Biden’s vaccine mandate on private businesses.
“As president-elect, Biden said on vaccines, ‘I don’t think it should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory.’
“Dr. Fauci in August of 2020 said, ‘I don’t think you’ll ever see a mandating of vaccine, particularly for the general public.’
“Yet, Biden and Fauci have flip-flopped and Americans are suffering. The Biden administration, Dr. Fauci and other federal bureaucrats are complicit in enacting divisive and pointless mandates that are violating Americans health autonomy and personal freedom. We have severe worker shortages throughout our economy and vaccine mandates exacerbate these shortages.
“To maintain their power and control, President Biden and the COVID gods want to keep us all in a state of fear.
“Enough liberty has been lost during this pandemic. It’s time to let Americans, not federal bureaucrats, make decisions for themselves. It’s time for Americans to reclaim their freedom and return to living a normal life.”
