Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), for the sixteenth day, spoke against President Biden’s vaccine mandate on the Senate Floor today (Nov. 17) and asked the Senate to pass by unanimous consent his bill to protect frontline workers from losing their jobs due to President Biden’s Center for Medicare and Medicate Services (CMS) vaccine mandate.
Of the bill, Sen. Lee said, “Doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers can either get a medical procedure they do not want or lose their current employment and any future prospect of employment. These heroes will be thanked for their service with a pink slip and a boot out the door as they become outcasts in the profession they have chosen, spent hard money training for, and dedicated their lives to. What a tragedy.”
Lee offered his bill the “Respecting Our Frontline Workers Act” which would protect medical workers from the CMS vaccination mandate.
