Washington D.C. — Republican Leader of the Energy and Commerce Committee Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement about President Joe Biden’s expected announcement to force all federal workers to receive a COVID-19 vaccine with no option for testing.
“President Biden continues to undermine confidence in safe and effective vaccines. He is using fear, control, and mandates — and failing to put science first. He hasn’t even nominated a FDA commissioner. This pandemic will never end if the American people aren’t trusted or given the information they need to assess risks and make the best decisions for themselves and their families. Perhaps to the authoritarian Biden-Harris administration, that’s exactly the point so they can hold onto their pandemic powers forever. It’s unacceptable and not the American way.”
