Oh hell yes! Republican lawmakers plan to shut down U.S. government on Friday to protest of COVID vaccine mandate: report

Sharing is Caring!

Conservative Republicans are reportedly planning to force a government shutdown to protest President Biden’s push to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for workers in large companies.

Far-right wing GOP senators say they will object to considering any bipartisan stop-gap funding measure to delay its passage until after a deadline to keep the government running past this Friday, Politico reported Wednesday.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said he won’t agree to the unanimous consent needed to move any funding measure forward quickly unless the White House agrees to suspend the vaccine mandate, a completely unrelated issue.

“Given that federal courts across the country have raised serious issues with these mandates, it’s not unreasonable for my Democratic colleagues to delay enforcement of the mandates,” Lee said in a statement.
