Senator Ted Cruz has introduced the No Vaccine Mandates Act (S.2686) and the No Mask Mandates Act (S.2685). To pass these bills to stop liberty-crushing vaccine and mask
mandates we need conservatives across the nation to tell their Senators to vote YES on the bills.
One easy way to send your Senators that message is to use the Americans for Limited Government take action tool.
The latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey found the public nearly evenly divided on the issue of vaccine mandates countrywide — whether they should exist at all and especially where they should exist.
The poll of 802 Americans taken from July 24-28 found 49% favoring vaccine mandates and 46% opposing — a difference that’s within the survey’s 3.5 percentage point margin of error. Five percent said they were unsure.
The CNBC poll tells us that those of us who value science and liberty must make our voices heard NOW.
And that’s why we are encouraging CHQ readers to use the Americans for Limited Government take action tool to contact their Senators to demand they support the Cruz No Vaccine Mandates Act and No Mask Mandates Act.
The No Mask Mandates Act ends the Biden administration's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mask mandate for all Americans-regardless of vaccination status. The No Vaccine Mandates Act would require people administering a COVID-19 vaccine to first obtain the patient's informed consent or, if the patient is a child, the informed consent of a parent or guardian. The bill also imposes civil penalties for violating a patient's right by vaccinating against COVID-19 without consent.
Upon introduction of these bills, Sen. Cruz said:
"Thanks to vaccinations and the natural immunity of Americans who have recovered from COVID-19, America is reopening. America is recovering, our kids are going back to school, and small businesses are returning as our nation's economic heartbeat. At the same time, President Biden is imposing unscientific and burdensome mandates to control Americans' lives.
"We as a country have taken extraordinary steps to defeat this disease, and I'm proud we've taken these steps. Unfortunately, we have also imposed enormous harms on our economy and people's lives and livelihoods, and we need to balance all of this appropriately. My view on vaccines is simple. I got the vaccine because it was the right choice for me. But I also believe in individual freedom. No one should force anyone to take the vaccine-including the federal government or an employer. Americans should have the choice to make their own medical decisions in consultation with their doctor.
"To protect the rights and privacy of Americans, I've introduced legislation that would prohibit federal COVID mandates. This means no mask mandates, no vaccine mandates, and no vaccine passports. My legislation also provides civil rights protections for employees from their employers, to stop discrimination based on vaccination status. The American people must have the freedom to exercise personal choice when it comes to protecting their health and the health of their families."
The No Vaccine Mandates Act contains several important provisions to protect the health privacy and liberty of Americans, including:
No vaccine mandates: This bill protects the right of personal autonomy and advance informed consent by prohibiting vaccine mandates, making it unlawful to require someone to receive any COVID-19 vaccine originally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) without first obtaining the patient's informed consent. That includes all COVID-19 vaccines currently approved in the United States.
Protects Parents Rights: The bill protects the rights of parents and guardians by requiring any person or entity administering the vaccine to obtain parental consent before administering a COVID vaccine to individuals under 18 years of age. Under this bill, schools cannot give underage students a vaccine without first getting legal guardians' permission.
Sen. Cruz has led the fight against COVID mandates in the Senate. In May, Sen. Cruz introduced the No Vaccine Passports Act to stop the federal government from establishing COVID-19 vaccine passports or working with third parties to establish their vaccine passports, such as airlines or other global entities.
