CHICO, Calif. - On Thursday, Congressman Doug LaMalfa responded to the Biden Administrations' announcement of a vaccine mandate for millions of Americans.
The mandate includes federal employees, contractors, and health care workers at federally funded hospitals. Companies with 100 or more employees must require vaccinations or weekly testing.
“This mandate is blatantly unconstitutional. Presidents cannot make up laws and impose fines because they want citizens and companies to do their bidding. Laws are made by Congress, not Presidential fiat. The government should leave medical decisions to individuals and their doctors to discuss their specific benefits and risk factors. Your individual medical information or immunization status is not the government’s business,” Rep. LaMalfa said.
