WASHINGTON— On Monday, Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) joined Newsmax’s Cortes & Pellegrino to discuss the Biden administration’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate on individuals and business owners across the nation.


Full clip of the video can be found here and some key quotes are below:


  • The President of the United States does not have the power to do this.
  • Many people who are pro-vaccine, many business owners who have encouraged their employees to be vaccinated, they don’t want to be in a position of having to go around and force their employees to be vaccinated because the President is misusing and abusing the power of OSHA.
  • The people of Texas, people around this country, small businesses, individuals, you need to hold the line, governors need to back you up, and we need to be very clear that we will make decisions for our families and our wellbeing, and not the President of the United States through authoritarian policies coming out of Washington.
  • This is literally just a power play to make sure more people who are unvaccinated get vaccinated- that’s the danger here, right?  We have people with natural immunity who are understandably, questioning should I go get the vaccine?…It’s none of their damn business whether you’ve had the vaccine.
