Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today released the following statement on President Biden’s vaccine mandate announcement:

"Joe Biden’s forced vaccine mandate impacting over 100 million Americans is unconstitutional, unlawful, and an authoritarian power grab that has become a hallmark of his failed Presidency.

"Under Joe Biden, COVID rates are higher than just one year ago under President Trump. From the mixed public health messaging, to the failure to nominate an FDA Commissioner, to the botched booster announcement, Joe Biden earns an F for managing COVID. 

"The American people should have the freedom to make the best decisions for their families rather than accepting forced illegal mandates from a power hungry government."
