Democrats proclaim that health care, housing, and an old-age pension are “rights.”
But U.S. Sen. Rick Scott recently pointed out that Democrats allow such benefits to take a back seat to President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
Last week, Scott introduced legislation that would have prevented mandatory virus jabs on those served by America’s social safety net.
That would have applied to recipients of Social Security and Social Security disability checks, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, public housing, food stamps, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) food-assistance program, free-and-reduced lunches in schools, among others.
Scott argued that – considering Biden’s mandate for the Pentagon and other federal employees as well as a similar proposal affecting private employers – it was not “far-fetched” to believe Biden would overrule individual medical decisions to get his way.
“King Biden is saying government knows best,” the Florida Republican said of the mandate while pointing out that less than a year ago, after he was elected, Biden rejected the idea of vaccine mandates or passports.
“How can the American people believe anything he says? Americans are sick and tired of the government telling them what to do, and are more than capable of making the right choices to protect themselves, their families, and their neighbors,” said Scott.
On the floor, Scott called for unanimous consent in order to move the measures forward.
In each case, Democrats refused to go along.
Accordingly, Scott said, Democrats were backing Biden’s policy of “If you want to be able to eat, you have to get a shot.”
“This is ridiculous. This is un-American. This is an attempt by President Biden to take over every aspect of your life,” Scott argued.
With their inaction on his bills, Scott said, the policy is now, “Get the vaccine, or go broke.”
“They want to be able to deny health care to Americans who have not received the vaccine,” he said. “No one should be deprived of health care because they have chosen not to receive the vaccine.”
“It’s baffling to me that is a precondition to having a roof over their head,” Scott added. “We can’t give people an ultimatum to comply with unconstitutional mandates or go without anything – Social Security, health care, housing, food benefits, or a job.”
