Sen. Cruz Issues Statement Slamming New Mask Mandate

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz today released the following statement in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) new mask mandate announcement:

"Today's decision, sadly, was driven by politics, not science. Let me be clear: there should be no more COVID mandates, no mask mandates, no vaccine mandates, no vaccine passports, no lockdowns, and no school closures. Enough is enough. The CDC has lost its credibility when it comes to what decisions Americans should make about COVID-19. It's long past time we got back to trusting the American people, not unelected federal bureaucrats."
