From Rep. Roy:

"Today, the Supreme Court blocked President Biden’s blatantly unconstitutional OSHA vaccine mandate for workers across the country. This was the correct decision.

"The OSHA mandate was a clear overreach by a President desperate to move forward on his failing political agenda – no matter how many lives and livelihoods might have been destroyed.

"As Justice Gorsuch wrote, '…Congress has chosen not to afford OSHA—or any federal agency—the authority to issue a vaccine mandate. Indeed, a majority of the Senate even voted to disapprove OSHA’s regulation. ...

"'...It seems, too, that the agency pursued its regulatory initiative only as a legislative ‘workaround.'” The American people have had more than enough of the tyrannical and unlawful policies forced on them in the supposed name of public health.

"I am, however, disappointed to see the Court — particularly Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh — simultaneously uphold President Biden’s mandate forcing certain healthcare workers to be vaccinated.

Our healthcare workers were upheld as heroes during the early pandemic; now they face the threat of losing their livelihoods over a bureaucratic edict that does nothing to slow the spread of this virus. Biden does not have the power to do this.

"As Justice Thomas wrote, 'if Congress had wanted to grant CMS authority to impose a nationwide vaccine mandate, and consequently alter the state-federal balance, it would have said so clearly. It did not.'

"Whether or not government funding is involved – it is simply morally wrong to take away the livelihoods of Americans for choosing to control and own their own medical decisions.

"I hope that the CMS decision has shown many of my fellow Republicans the folly of punting the question of these mandates to the court, and I encourage more of them to join me in fighting to defund any and all federal government COVID-19 mandates going forward."

"Every year, young men and women of faith across this country bravely choose to join our nation’s fighting forces. They do so believing that they may simultaneously serve their country and their God"

"This [vaccine] mandate, however, sends a strong signal to these young men and women that they must choose between their faith and their desire to protect America because the military will not reasonably accommodate their sincerely held religious beliefs"

"If the mandate stands, it is likely, then, that it will be more difficult for our military to recruit highly qualified individuals of faith to serve our country—a consequence that is wholly unnecessary, damaging to our military’s morale, and damaging to our national security"

THREAD on the victims of the #BidenBorderCrisis:

Over the weekend, two innocent lives were lost in Mission, TX after a smuggler T-boned the victims’ car.

Yes, we are dealing with the highest levels of southern border encounters on record, but even that data point can’t tell the full story of the destruction going on at our border & our communities.…

3/ In April, we already knew that cartels were trafficking human beings through suburban communities far from the border
Since then, this crisis has only gotten worse, and cartels have become even more entrenched…

Democrats keep claiming their massive spending bill is “popular” but we aren’t sure they’ve actually READ this 2,000+ page monstrosity.

Let’s take a look under the hood to determine how “popular” this bill actually should be.

🧵 THREAD 🧵 1/x
First, Dems are relying on budget gimmicks when they say this thing costs $1.75 trillion.

@BudgetModel found the true cost will be a whopping $4 TRILLION after Dems make their spending programs permanent

Even the NYT called them out on their BS 👇

Even if you buy that this will be paid for (it won’t) all of the spending is front loaded. It will increase the deficit by $800B over the first 5 yrs before recouping some of the costs later.

This means it will make inflation – which hit a 30 yr high in October – worse.

The American people have been subjected to absolutely INSANE levels of lying, misinformation, and dishonesty from the Biden administration over the past 10 months

Since the corporate media has no real interest in pointing it out, here’s a list:

Let's start with the lie that Biden wouldn't call for a federal vaxx mandate

Then President Elect Biden said in December of 2020 "No - I don't think it should be mandatory. I wouldn't demand it to be mandatory"

We all saw how that turned out…
Going back to COVID response, we're also being sold a load of garbage over Biden's vaccine mandate:

To begin, while this mandate makes no consideration for natural immunity, a recent CDC admission points how effective it actually is vs a vaccine:

🚨 Inflation hit its highest rate in OVER 30 YEARS in October 🚨

-Overall prices up 6.2%
-Food prices up 5.3%
-Gas prices up 49.6% (!)
-Electricity prices up 6.5%…

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and folks can’t even find turkeys, let alone afford them.

-Turkeys were over 60% out of stock at the end of October

-Poultry, meat, fish, and egg prices are up 11.9%…
No matter how @WHCOS tries to spin it, inflation is bad for workers.

Real hourly wages decreased .5% in October due to these price spikes… Image

NEW: A 24-year-old Honduran charged with murder crossed the US border illegally while posing as a minor amid the #BidenBorderCrisis

INEXCUSABLE. This is the exact sort of thing Rep. Roy has been fighting against since Biden took office

(THREAD) 🧵🧵🧵…
The victim was "a father of four who had taken in the immigrant who told authorities he was 17."

“This horrific crime is the latest example of how unfettered illegal migration costs Floridians’ lives,” @GovRonDeSantis office told @nypost

FACT CHECK: TRUE, more below 🔽🔽🔽
"In keeping with President Biden’s border policy on unaccompanied minors crossing the US border, Ulloa wasn’t turned away"

"It is not clear how Ulloa ended up in Florida after being detained in Texas"

Because BIDEN ENDED Trump's Title 42 protocols for unaccompanied minors
