Congressman Mo Brooks Cosponsors Bill to Stop Biden Vaccine Mandate
Washington, DC— Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) has cosponsored Congressman Andy Biggs’ (AZ-05) bill that kills President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate and bars the federal government from requiring employers to mandate vaccines for, or testing of, employees.
Congressman Brooks said, “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.”
