50 GOP Senators agree: the vaccine should be a personal medical decision.
Republican Senators are mounting a last-ditch effort to challenge the Biden administration’s mandatory vaccine order for businesses with more than 100 employees. Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) is expected to introduce a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, Fox News reports.
“President Biden’s vaccine mandate is an unconstitutional invasion of what should be a personal medical decision for every American and an affront to the rights of 80 million American workers,” Braun told Fox News.
“Today, my Republican colleagues and I will formally challenge this federal overreach, and I urge the Senate to vote in favor of this disapproval resolution when it comes to the Floor for a filibuster-proof, simple-majority vote in early December.”
According to the New York Post, “Businesses covered by the mandate employ approximately 84 million Americans, according to the White House. Employers who do not comply could face fines as high as $14,000 for each violation.”
The challenge is unlikely to succeed as Democrats hold majorities in both the House and Senate.
