Sens. Cruz, Cramer Introduce Bills to Ban Mask and Vaccine Mandates​


WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) today introduced the No Mask Mandates Act and No Vaccine 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."


Sen. Cramer added:

"When it comes to handling COVID-19, Americans are self-governed people who have more than enough information available to them on how to talk to their doctor and figure out what is best for themselves and their families. Efforts by the Biden Administration and its allies to bully or force people to comply with mask and vaccine mandates - even though their guidance has been inconsistent and haphazard throughout the pandemic - will only succeed at infringing upon the rights of the American people. Our legislation would protect Americans by preventing the federal government from allowing itself to make these important decisions on their behalf."

BACKGROUND
The No Mask Mandates Act
of 2021 would:

  • End President Biden's Executive Order related to mask mandates on public property.
  • End the CDC's mask mandate affecting transportation while also prohibiting implementation of similar federal mandates in the future.
  • Apply to all Americans regardless of their vaccination status.
  • Ensure no use of taxpayer funds to enforce any federal mask mandate in response to COVID-19.
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.

(A) Watching the video of K. Harris' "Surprise" BD party I seriously wonder why she and Sleepy Joe are wearing masks. Everyone is vaccinated and tested regularly. What is the point? What is the purpose?

(B) When masks were first being suggested, Dr. Fauci, among many other medical professionals, said that the commonly available paper and cloth masks were worthless for two reasons: the microorganisms that were Covid 19 were so small that they could easily pass through the fabric of these masks, and since the masks were not fastened onto the wearer's face, air could easily pass around the masks and into the persons nose and mouth. So again, these masks are worthless.

What has changed?

Do you have a link to this mandate?

He's being hypocritical.

He supports business owners denying service to people for so called religious reasons but he doesn't support a business requiring masks or proof of vaccination.

You’re not very bright. A single black fentanyl eater aroused masses of marauding, selfish loot-and-burn baboons as Americans were being eaten by the commie virus, and you haven’t the intelligence to reify a single vaxxed American who reacted to the vaccine against the commie virus, a virus funky Chinese rum ps know more about than you.

And yet a couple weekends ago the wife and I took a weekend golf/spa trip that included driving through 3 states and never once put on a mask. I feel like there is really not a mask mandate for all Americans-regardless of vaccination status.

The biggest problem I see is when they are going into schools abusing the children with mask mandates when parents want their children left alone and even in many cases vaccinating children without parental consent or forcing companies to make medical mandates on their employees or else. Several companies are just raising their cost to the consumer because they refuse to mandate vaccines for their employees. Adding unnecessary cost to do business in the US isn't needed or warranted. Nor is adding to the taxpayer burden which they do on a frequent basis for this bullshit that they helped to create.

I do not disagree with those things, but I somehow doubt any child is vaccinated without parental consent. A kid cannot even take an aspirin in school without a doctors note.

Wrong. It did used to be that way but that note thing no longer applies. You can doubt that all you wish but the fact is I belong to several groups and that is one of the big issues that they have been dealing with. They call it vaccine day and if the parents did not specifically write the school saying they do not consent they were jabbing children under presumption clauses. Even many who wrote that they were not to vaccinate their child the child was jabbed anyhow; which resulted in doubled up vaccinated thus double exposure to the toxins in the vaccines.

Many young couples are now home birthing to avoid these maniacs that want to vaccinate babies in their first 24 hours of life. It truly is insane and what is worse is like you most of the older crowd are utterly clueless as to what is going down.

Sorry, I do not think things have changed that drastically since my son graduated in 2020, I am not buying it without some sort of actual evidence.

What happens when criminals are given immunity or cannot be sued when they cause injuries? Do you all really think they are going to give a hoot about the health and well being of anything but their own profits? I sure don't.

A lot of "cans" not one example of it happening.

Let me know when it does.
The cases are out there. You'd rather live in your bubble of denial apparently than take a few minutes to search the matters out.
