Texas Senator Ted Cruz is taking action to stop a potential move by President Joe Biden to force Americans nationally to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or wear masks in public, introducing two bills banning national vaccine and mask mandates.

Cruz’s No Mask Mandates Act ends Biden’s Executive Order on mask mandates on public property, ends the CDC’s mask mandate on public transportation while also prohibiting implementation of similar federal mandates in the future and prohibits the use of taxpayer funds to enforce any federal mask mandate in response to COVID-19.


Cruz’s No Vaccine Mandates Act prohibits giving someone a COVID-19 vaccine without first obtaining the patient’s informed consent and requires parental consent before vaccinating someone younger than 18.

“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,” said Cruz.

Even many of those who have been vaccinated and believe in vaccines oppose a national mandate forcing them on people.

“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,” Cruz added.

“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” said Cruz.

Fire Biden ? Fire Fauci ? Lock them up and the rest of the people who led the coup against President Trump! … and lied about their involvement in this nasty virus developed by “Dr” Fauci! (And his cronies. )….. Reinstate our president by showing the legal votes before our country is eating rice on the street corners. Biden/ Harris are not fit to receive pay for the job performances they are executing on America’s fall from grace. It is a sad social experiment we are being forced to endure as tax payers and owners of this beloved country!
