Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Richeard Burr (R-NC), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) no-showed an important vote to defund Biden’s mandate madness. Two measures were being considered, but the GOP wasn’t playing with a full team.
“Neither of the two COVID-19 mandate amendments ultimately passed, but they did receive support from nearly every Republican in the chamber,” ABC News reportx. “One amendment, offered by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, would have revoked federal funds for schools that left mask mandates in place for children. The other, led by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, would have ended the federal vaccine mandate.”
“Challenges to pandemic mandates are becoming increasingly popular among Republican lawmakers, who are looking to capitalize on growing fatigue over COVID-19 across the country.”
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) put the Senators on blast on Twitter:
“Missing R’s keeping vax mandates alive? Romney (UT), Inhofe (OK), Burr (NC), & Graham (SC). No excuses – they should all be shamed. Now – EVERY @SenateGOP should be held accountable for voting to fund this government. Watch, count the votes, then act. #DefundVaxMandates”
