Senate Republicans Pass Resolution to Block Biden’s CMS COVID-19 Jab Mandate for Healthcare Workers

The U.S. Senate passed a resolution on Wednesday to block the Biden administration’s COVID-19 jab mandate for most healthcare workers.

“Today is a huge victory for all the healthcare workers who ran to the sound of the COVID battle, as Senate Republicans joined forces taking us one step closer to invalidating President Biden’s overreaching and harmful CMS vaccine mandate,” said Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS).

The resolution, named S.J. Res. 32, passed 49-44 and heads for a vote in the House of Representatives.

More than 30 GOP senators co-sponsored the resolution that was introduced under the Congressional Review Act.

Six Democrat senators were absent from the vote, allowing the Republican senators to pass the resolution opposed by the White House.

Breitbart reported:

While the Biden administration’s OSHA mandate was blocked in the Supreme Court in an expedited mid-January hearing, the nation’s highest court allowed the CMS mandate to stand for the time being.

GOP Senators led and passed a similar resolution 52-48 earlier this month against Biden’s OSHA mandate, in which Democrat Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted with Republicans, The Hill reported. According to the publication, the White House has warned that it would veto both measures if the resolutions pass the House.

“Make no mistake, this federal vaccine mandate is not about public health or science – it’s about Joe Biden fulfilling his desire to control every aspect of our lives, and it’s a slap in the face to the hard-working men and women who never took a day off in the frontline fight against COVID-19,” Marshall continued in his statement to Breitbart News. “These workers are the true heroes of the pandemic and deserve our best fight and utmost respect.”

The Hill added:

The Congressional Review Act, which was enacted in 1996, sets up a fast-track process in the Senate that allows the minority party to force a vote on a resolution to disapprove of a federal rule. That law, however, does not have a fast-track process for the House.

Instead, Republicans are hoping to get the simple majority needed to force a vote through a discharge petition, which will require support from a handful of House Democrats.

Even if the resolution passes the House, Biden will veto it.

“Tennessee’s healthcare workers should not be fired from showing up to work and providing lifesaving care. This resolution will stop the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) from firing the nurses, doctors, and medical professionals that care for the elderly, poor, and most vulnerable,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
