CONGRESSMAN VAN DREW DRAFTS LEGISLATION TO PREVENT AUTHORITATIVE VACCINE MANDATES
November 15, 2021
Today, Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement regarding legislation he is drafting that would prevent any entity from imposing an authoritarian vaccine mandate.
“President Biden’s outrageous vaccine mandates are putting our first responders, firefighters, and police officers, who did not have the opportunity to work remote during the pandemic, at risk of losing their jobs,” said Congressman Van Drew. “President Biden and his administration continuously look down upon and publicly attack those that wish to have control over their personal health choices. He is overreaching the powers granted to him by the Constitution and the American people, which is not the America I know and love.
The rippling effects from these vaccine mandates have resulted in one of the most severe supply chain crisis and labor shortages this country has ever seen. Vaccine mandates, despite outpouring backlash from millions of Americans and a lack of consideration from this administration for natural immunity, will only exacerbate this issue. My bill will ensure that Americans’ right to make their own public health choices stays intact and employers will not be able to force their employees to inject themselves with the COVID-19 vaccination.”
