Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on President Biden Imposing COVID Vaccine Mandates on Businesses

September 10, 2021

HOUSTON, Texas - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement after President Biden ordered the U.S. Labor Department to impose a COVID vaccine mandate on businesses with over 100 employees, medical providers that accept Medicare or Medicaid, and federal workers and contractors:

"President Biden's latest and most far-reaching COVID mandate completely ignores science. Forcibly vaccinating people who already have immunity ignores medical data and is a brazen violation of Americans' privacy rights.

"The federal government has no authority to force businesses in Texas and across the country to mandate their employees get vaccinated. American businesses are still recovering from this past year and a half. It is cruel and burdensome to impose this authoritarian mandate.

"While I support the vaccine and have received it, Americans have the right to exercise personal choice when it comes to their health. Getting the vaccine is a decision to be made in consultation with one's doctor, not forced on Americans by the government. With these new mandates, President Biden and his administration have chosen to put politics over science and the rights of Americans once again."
