Now that the Republicans have finally (for now) sorted out internal bickering, they have coalesced (at last) around a critical objective: defeating the elitists’ ongoing efforts to divide and destroy the nation.
Given how richly the elites profited off the pandemic, especially in terms of successfully convincing people to self-imprison themselves, it is quite clear that the pandemic is a natural place for freedom-loving representatives to foster new bills for a brighter future.
And, just like that, Republicans scored a double victory in the House through the successful passage of two bills, one of which even drew (tiny) Democrat support.
The first bill, H.R. 382 – the Pandemic is Over Act, passed with 220 votes in favor and 210 votes against, with all Democrats voting against the bill.
At least this is a bill most representatives probably actually read, given how succinct and sweet it is.
Just consider the pithy text below.
“The public health emergency declared by the Secretary pursuant to section 319 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 247d) on January 31, 2020, entitled ‘Determination that a Public Health Emergency Exists Nationwide as the Result of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus’ (and any renewal thereof) shall terminate on the date of the enactment of this Act,” the bill declares.
For reference, former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ended COVID restrictions literally more than a year ago, as well as all COVID restrictions for all international travelers last March.
Dems can be a bit slow.
The second bill, H.R. 497 – the Freedom for Health Care Workers Act, passed with 227 votes in favor and 203 votes against. The “aye” votes included all Republicans and even some Democrats from an array of states, such as Representative Donald G. Davis of North Carolina.
The full list of “no” and “aye” votes by representative can be found here.
Frankly, far more Democrats should have voted “aye” on this bill, given that it bans the unlawful vaccine mandate that even the “science” has come out against.
“The Secretary of Health and Human Services may not implement, enforce, or otherwise give effect to the rule entitled ‘Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID–19 Health Care Staff Vaccination’ published by the Department of Health and Human Services on November 5, 2021 (86 Fed. Reg. 61555) and may not promulgate any substantially similar rule,” the bill states.
Alas, Democrats frequently vote party before science.
Representative Frank Pallone, a Democrat from New Jersey, gave rather humorous “justification” for his opposition.
Per Pallone, these bills “abruptly and irresponsibly end the COVID-19 public health emergency virtually overnight.”
Right. Except the UK, EU, and many other nations and regions are doing just fine, and they have long since ended their own pandemic-related emergencies.
To be fair, however, at least Pallone has more of a clue than Biden, who appeared unaware that the bills were being voted on at all.
Just consider his bizarre response to an NBC correspondent’s inquiry about the pandemic ending (i.e., what the House was voting on).
“The COVID emergency will end when the Supreme Court ends it. We’ve extended it to May the 15th to make sure we get everything done. That’s all. There’s nothing behind it at all,” Biden boomed, after seizing the reporter’s umbrella and squeezing up close to avoid being rained upon.
Ironic, considering the “social distancing” Democrats have insisted upon …
