FreedomWorks Urges Senate Support for Amendments by Senators Lee, Cruz, and Braun Defunding Vaccine Mandates and Balancing the Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the scheduled votes tonight in the Senate on amendments to the 2022 CR that would defund federal vaccine mandates and balance the federal budget, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Republicans must join with Sens. Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Mike Braun and support these amendments that would defund the Biden Administration’s illegal vaccine mandates and work to balance the federal budget.”

“We also encourage Democrats like Sens. Manchin, Kelly, and Sinema to support these amendments and remind their constituents that they truly are independent from the whims of Majority Leader Schumer and the far-Left of their party. Sen. Manchin himself voted against a vaccine mandate in previous legislation, and there’s no reason he shouldn’t do it again.”
