A group of Republicans are pushing hard against federal efforts to enforce vaccine mandates with new legislation that could cripple agency mandates.
“I just introduced the No Mandates Act, which prohibits any federal agency or entity that receives federal funds from issuing a COVID vax mandate,” said Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. “It also requires any entity who received COVID relief funds to repay those funds if they issue a vax mandate.”
The new bill comes alongside a Supreme Court ruling reversing President Joe Biden’s recent broad COVID vaccine mandate. The door appears to be open, though, to more targeted mandates at different agencies.
This bill has more than two dozen Republican cosponsors.
“The American people have had enough of Big Government and Leftist corporations telling them how to live their lives. Americans’ hard-earned tax-dollars bailed out these businesses and now these businesses are trying to dictate the health care decisions of their customers,” Biggs said. “If we don’t stop this now, President Biden and the Far Left will do everything in their power to impose COVID-19 vaccine mandates and control every aspect of our everyday lives, from restaurants to stores to banks to flights. We need to put an end to these mandates and allow the American people to make their own healthcare decisions. It’s time to emphasize freedom and personal responsibility.”
