GOP Senators Want To Defund COVID Mandates

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference | GOP Senators Want To Defund COVID Mandates

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) leads the group of Republican senators who threaten to withhold the next continuing resolution.

They will withhold their support until the Senate votes on an amendment that defunds Biden’s COVID mandates. The current continuing resolution will expire on February 18. 

The GOP senators issued a letter to fellow lawmakers. “As you are likely aware, the OSHA mandate was rescinded shortly after the Supreme Court blocked its enforcement.

This is no small victory. Millions of Americans are now free from this unwarranted federal invasion into healthcare decisions, but for how long?” 

No Vote on Defunding, No Continuing Resolution

The senators added that in addition to the harmful uncertainty facing targets of the COVID mandates, Americans also face uncertainty. They have no idea if President Biden abandoned his need to impose similar requirements on ordinary Americans.  

As a result, the group led by Lee said that they will withhold support for the passage of a continuing resolution. Unless the Senate agrees to vote for an amendment defunding Biden’s COVID mandates, they will hold off on the CR. 

We will continue to stand against these mandates until they are discontinued in ambition, design, and practice.” they wrote.  Joining Senator Lee are Roger Marshall (KS), Cynthia Lummis (WY), Mike Braun (IN), Rand Paul (KY), and Ted Cuz (TX). 

Serious Abuse of Federal Power

The letter also alluded to COVID mandates as a serious abuse of federal power and executive authority. These also cause further strain to the economy as it continues to ignore existing evidence-based data on natural COVID immunity.

It points out that evidence-based research showed that vaccines do not prevent the spread of the virus. Regardless, “President Biden has no business forcing people to make a tragic choice between unemployment and an unwanted vaccination.” 

The letter ends with a plea for Senators to join them in their petition for a vote defunding Biden’s COVID mandates. It asks them to “oppose the CR until it explicitly defunds the implementation and enforcement of these mandates.

At a minimum, we need to take a vote on this before funding their enforcement. The livelihoods and personal freedoms of millions of Americans are at stake.”

    I am really SO VERY TIRED of ALL of these Mandates. Biden most likely flunked SCIENCE class and is a puppet to do whatever FAUCI, WALENSKY, FDA, CDC, AND NIH say. It is totally disgraceful. People can’t work to help fellow Americans. The strain on their families is HORRIBLE! Then it is the children that they decided to destroy with mask mandates. Close down Teachers’ unions. They are only thinking of themselves. If people want to have the vaccine let them make the choice but assurance that informed consent is gotten. OOPS! How can it be informed consent when there is NO definite
    evaluation of side effects from the vaccines (which really aren’t vaccines)long term available. GET THE VOTE! or are your colleagues worried they won’t get their pay checks. There are Americans who aren’t all ready. Another OOPS Not mandatory for all the illegals invading the country. SHAMEFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for listening.

    They’re illegal so just ignore them. Plus. They don’t seem to apply to all so even more reason to ignore them. Even if you believe all of the covid nonsense, this is just about control because they don’t do anything.
