Congressman Mark Green Calls Out Biden’s ‘Counterproductive’ Vaccine Mandates


U.S Representative Mark Green (R-TN-07) on Tuesday called out President Joe Biden for his “counterproductive” vaccine mandates.

Green, like many other Republican officials, argued Biden’s mandates are hypocritical, as the commander-in-chief admitted “there is no federal solution” to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a letter addressed to Biden, the Tennessee congressman urged Biden, because of his recent remarks, to end all mandates issued by his administration

“If you believe this to be true, then it is time for you to immediately rescind the unconstitutional federal mandates that are harming frontline workers and everyday Americans. By unilaterally dictating that every business with over 100 employees impose a vaccine-or-test mandate, your Administration is punishing millions who have decided not to get vaccinated, many of whom have acquired natural immunity. Yet your Administration continues to ignore the scientific consensus that recognizes the long-lasting protection natural immunity provides,” Green wrote in the letter.

Green, who has consistently opposed coronavirus mandates, pointed out that Biden campaigned on ending the pandemic. Often, the Biden campaign blamed former President Trump for death totals and high positive cases. However, more people have died from the virus in 2021 than in 2020.

“President Biden came into office promising to ‘shut down the virus’ as president. Now he admits that ‘there is no federal solution’ to the COVID-19 pandemic even as he continues to use the federal government to impose heavy-handed and counterproductive vaccine mandates on the entire country. It is well past time for President Biden to rescind his unconstitutional federal mandates. The American people are through with this hypocritical charade,” Green added in a statement.

Earlier this month, Green again called on Biden to rescind the executive orders implementing the mandates, pointing to a string of rulings from the judicial branch.

    Mark Green and Marsha Blackburn should be asked if they support term limits? Green and Blackburn have been there long enough! Blackburn supports RINO, Mitch McConnell and breaks her. promises to hard working Tennesseans! We need term limits and cut them off participating in the federal Retirement program. Public service should be without benefits! Blackburn as been in congress since 2003! How big is her retirement check? Term Limits now…..

    I hope Congressman Green is actually voting against COVID mandates when he gets the chance. Writing letters is great and all, but Joejoe does not give a f*ck what anybody says who does not parrot the leftist elites’ agenda. In fact , Joejoe probably does well to dress and feed himself every day, let alone read the mail.

    You are %$#@ right. If these old white men don’t get it right at the Supreme Court soon, you are about to witness a total failure of the sick care system. 25% of all Nurses quit the profession after the first two years anyways.

    So, when these old white greedy men are laying in their diapers, with bedsores, ringing their nurse’ call lights, thirsty and in need of pain medicine, and no one comes, they will have their own self to thank.

    Let me remind folks that the Church founded the first Hospitals in Western Civilization, not Pfizer.

    Mark Green is a RINO! He supports liberal Tax and Spend Jim Cooper! Green needs to be primaried and replaced with a true Tennessee Conservative!

      You got it backwards, Nancy. Cooper is a DINO (a closeted Republican) because why else would the Left turn against him?

    So, Bill Lee is “silent” about the brave men and women of our National Guard having to get the jab, yet Congressman Green is publicly outspoken against forced vaccination, hmmm? It’s good to see that Tennessee still has some true leaders, even if we had to import them from Mississippi!

    And I can’t help but wonder which one Bill Gates or China would say is a true leader of free men?
