Ted Cruz Slams Biden’s Vax Mandate

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday that President Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesses is designed to fail and being used only as a distraction from his “catastrophe” in Afghanistan.

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Cruz said Biden’s rule requiring companies with 100 or more employees to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing is “illegal” and only meant to get the Democratic president back in the media’s good graces after he was widely criticized for his chaotic military withdrawal in Afghanistan.

“They want to change the topic from Afghanistan,” the senator said. “It’s why Biden issued this completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate, because he wanted to change the topic from the disaster in Afghanistan.

“The vaccine mandate is going to be struck down in court. They know that,” he continued. “But the president is defying the law because he wanted the press to start defending him and stop talking about the disasters in Afghanistan. And he’s counting on a bunch of big businesses, in particular, forcing their employees to comply before the matter is ever adjudicated and before the order is struck down.”
