Press Release

WASHINGTON – Reacting to President Biden’s executive order mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for private businesses with over 100 employees, Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-AR) released the following statement: 

“This week, the Biden Administration and Democrat leaders in D.C. have illustrated misguided priorities, out-of-touch policies, and incompetency,” said Congressman Westerman. They ignore the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and on our southern border. They ignore inflation and double-down on it by supporting $3.5 trillion in radical spending that will increase consumer prices and our national debt doing considerably more damage than good.

Instead of solving problems, this Administration pushes another ill-conceived, divisive executive action. Biden's vaccine edict on private businesses is just another example of government overreach in Americans’ lives and does nothing to combat vaccine hesitancy.”
