Sen. Johnson Issues Statement on President Biden’s Proposed Federal Employee Vaccine Mandate

WASHINGTON – On Thursday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement in opposition to the Biden administration’s plan to impose a vaccine mandate for federal employees:

“President Biden needs to begin respecting Americans’ freedom and their ability to choose whether to get vaccinated or not. This should not be a controversial issue. No one should be pressured, coerced or made to fear reprisal for refusing any medical treatment, including the COVID vaccine. President Biden’s remarks directly contradict what this country stands for: freedom and individuals’ right to choose what is best for themselves and their families. We all want this pandemic to be over and I believe the vaccine has saved lives. The government’s role should be to take it’s safety surveillance systems seriously and provide full transparency so people can make an informed decision. We’ve lost enough liberty during this pandemic. It’s time for Americans to reclaim their freedom.”
