Senator Ted Cruz just slammed the4 Biden administration for its vaccine mandates.
Daily Wire notes that the mandates pose a threat to people’s jobs which in some cases pose a risk to U.S. national security.
Cruz’s remarks come after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit halted Democrat President Joe Biden’s mandate last month, citing potential “grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate.”
“The Biden White House mandates have been struck down repeatedly by the courts,” Cruz told reporters on Thursday.
He continued and said:
“They are blatantly lawless. Joe Biden knows they’re lawless. His lawyers have told him that the vaccine mandates are contrary to law. And Democrats don’t care. They don’t care about medical privacy. They don’t care about individual autonomy. Instead, we have seen in the course of this pandemic, Democrats, being very comfortable with being petty tyrants and decreeing that you must obey their medical mandates.”
Cruz noted he supports vaccines and that both he and his family have been vaccinated against the coronavirus but he “also support[s] individual liberty and individual responsibility.”
“It ought to be your choice as a responsible adult to decide whether to get the COVID vaccine,” Cruz continued.
He also said:
“And you ought to make that discussion, that decision in consultation with your doctor. And no pissant politician — whether a local mayor, or a governor or the President of the United States — has the right or legal authority to force you to make that decision.”
