Once again Senator Mitt Romney is reminding all of us why we can’t stand him.
Romney spoke out against Republican Senators wishing to shutdown the government in order to put pressure on Biden to end his mandate.
“It smacks of virtue signaling when the courts have already put a stay on it and when the Biden administration isn’t enforcing a vaccine mandate on federal employees,” said the rhino Republican Senator.

Utah Senator Mike Lee joined the group of Senate Republicans threatening a government shutdown over the OSHA mandate.
“I don’t want to shut down the government,” Lee said in an 11-minute speech on the Senate floor on Thursday. “The only thing I want to shut down is Congress funding enforcement of an immoral, unconstitutional vaccine mandate.”
“If the choice is between temporarily suspending nonessential functions on the one hand and on the other hand standing idle as up to 45 million Americans lose their jobs, their livelihoods, and their ability to work, I’ll stand with American workers every time,” Lee said.
“I’m sure we would all like to simplify the process for resolving the CR (continuous resolution), but I can’t facilitate that without addressing the vaccine mandates,” Lee told Politico in a statement.
“Given that federal courts across the country have raised serious issues with these mandates, it’s not unreasonable for my Democratic colleagues to delay enforcement of the mandates for at least the length of the continuing resolution.”
In the end Senate Republicans failed and the stopgap bill was approved however, this week the Senate is planning on vote on a resolution to stop the mandate through the Congressional Review Act. It has also been announced that Senator Joe Manchin and Democrats may vote to kill the mandate. Below is a report from ABC News signaling that other Democrats may join Manchin.
.@rachelvscott tells @MarthaRaddatz that Sen. Joe Manchin will vote to overturn the Pres. Biden’s vaccine mandate on private businesses.
“Every Democratic senator is now going to have to go on the record. We could see more also vote in support of that.” https://t.co/8syglD1ibb pic.twitter.com/kH0lfru0Iq
