An effort to restore the jobs and back pay of firefighters who lost their jobs for refusing or even criticizing the COVID-19 vaccine was defeated when four Senate Republicans joined with Democrats to defeat the measure.

Senators 54-45 against U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) “Support the Reinstatement of Trained and Effective Firefighters” amendment which “makes funding available to fire departments that terminated firefighters for refusing vaccination or voicing opposition to COVID-19 mandates only if they offer full reinstatement and backpay to those who lost their jobs.”

The amendment was considered as part of S.870, the Fire Grants and Safety Act, which helps local fire departments hire additional firefighters.

Along with every voting Senate Democrat, Republican senators Susan Collins (ME), Mitt Romney (UT), Mike Rounds (SD) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) voted against the amendment.

Every other Senate Republican voted in favor. California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, recovering at home from illness, did not vote.

“It seems bizarre and contradictory to provide financial support to increase fire department staffing when decisions were made to terminate trained and effective firefighters for no good reason. Firefighters tend to be young and fit, the very people who had the least to worry about COVID-19,” said Paul, before the vote.

“These people were never a threat to their communities. On the contrary, they served their communities bravely and made their neighbors safer. What was done to them, what was done to police, what was done to first responders was shameful and we should stand together to make sure it never happens again,” said Paul.


  1. And right after this fiasco, a Chicago judge orders the City to hire back all those fired for not taking the Jab. With back Pay and interest.

  2. All four are the big losers in the Republican party. Collins and Romney are just true Dems. They all should have been removed a long time ago. Didn’t Romney just say he was going to become a DUMB Dim.

  3. Take them off committees in which they are now serving. Censure them for their lack of common sense and compassion for those who refused a useless, and worse: destructive vaccine. Make them feel the weight of their stupidity and guilt. Shame on them!

  4. 4 Rino Senators voted right along with the corrupt Democrats and this is why the Republicans will never gain back control of the Senate

  5. These Rhino should go if people can not see what is going on them please move to another country where you think you can get away with this BS. If you want someone to tell you how to live and how to worship, and how to dress and forced to accept ways that are against your better judgement then for God’s sake leave the country.

  6. I am sick of the one party rule in our Republic. Republicans today are no different than their Democratic Counterparts. I support the rise of the Constitution Party……I previously walked away from the Democrats, and now I am walking away from the GOP! And, my friends are too.

    1. Really? It is just a few of the “Republicans” who are spies, saboteurs and traitors who should be kicked out of the party.

  7. These, for never cease to amaze me how much of a Democrat they really are. It almost seems to me like the three stooges wrapped in the four bodies. Except that’s kind of insulting the three stooges.

  8. There are bad dems, bad repubs (RINOS) None of which give a rats behind about the people. – and I would like to take a poll how many of them really got the jab, and how many are taking money from the lobbyists of the drug manufacturers, and propagating the death of our nation.

  9. Figures, the regular 4 rino assholes, typical. Vote them all out. Reinstate the firefighters who stood up for their rights against the democrap sponsored SCAMdemic political virus and killer jab.

  10. Same cast of turncoats, RINO characters, Collins, Romney & Murkowski, plus a new one Rounds (of SD). WTH is wrong with Rounds joining these stupid people? Romney and Murkowski shouldn’t even be in the Senate since they come from Republican states. Getting rid of them will bring a Republican Senate majority.

  11. The same sorry azzzzz RINOs, DemonRats wanna-be’s ! They are shameful and disgusting and need to quit masquerading as Repubs when they are evil, socialist, Marxist Dems. Need to remove the R next to their names and confess to what they really are.

  12. The four mentioned Senators are all RINO’s. For some reason they keep getting voted back in. I’d like to know why.

  13. Why was there no explanation as to why they voted against the bill? What was their reasoning? What a shame this type of thing keeps happening over, and over, and over, again. The government and the populace are so divided nothing gets done that benefits America. Only the woke seem to get anything done, even though it is wrong for us all.

  14. No surprise here considering three are major scumbags, Romney, Collins, and Murkowski, Mike Rounds I am not familiar with. That said, he joins the Scumbag crowd and needs to go along with the three losers mentioned above.

  15. All the usual Incompetents and Anti-American Riff-Raff: “Along with every voting Senate Democrat, Republican senators Susan Collins (ME), Mitt Romney (UT), Mike Rounds (SD) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) voted against the amendment.

  16. Well, no big surprise considering what RINO hacks they are and for God’s sake, the average length of a shingles attack is 3-4 weeks not 2-3 months. Feinstein needs to go ahead and GTFO.

  17. All of these four senators are RINO’s.
    Mitt Romney is the Worst, Hiding Under The Cloak of Mormon Religion.

  18. After 28 years with the local fire department and retired in 2013 if I was required to get the jab I would not have taken and if they fired me I would not want to go back even with back pay cause they would find some way to take that money back and I wouldn’t receive any promotions I would have gotten and I don’t trust the Unions

  19. Outside of Rounds, we could guessed the RINOs. The 2 independent Senators are their usual dependable selves. Tester and Manchin are in the hope people forget, being a reelection year for them.

  20. There was never a vaccine for covid. Bill Gates .. on video .. told a group of drug companies that the world was overpopulated and that we must reduce the population by 1/6th and with their drugs and vaccines they can accomplish their mission. It was nothing but a bioweapon. My bet is that they will exceed their goal of 1 out of every 6. I have several photos of Fauci, Gates, and Birx together. Birx admitted that she and Fauci were lying with their daily updates.
