Bacon’s Statement on Biden’s Proposed Mandates

 OMAHA, NEB. - Rep. Don Bacon (NE – 02) issued the following statement in regard to the President’s announced plan to enact vaccine mandates:

“Earlier this year I received the vaccine because I believed that it was the right choice and I encouraged others to do the same.  While we should encourage vaccine use through transparency and communication of scientific data, we should not force vaccines on citizens without considering their individual medical and personal circumstances.  We can prevail through decency and trust. In contrast, President Biden used shaming and demonization, which further divides our country and is counterproductive to our recovery. 

 “Finally, nothing in the Constitution gives the President the legal authority to put mandates concerning personal health decisions on the private sector.”
