Conservatives Consider Government Shutdown to Block Vaccine Mandate Funding

Conservatives are willing to block Biden’s employer vaccines mandate by any means necessary. A coalition of conservative senators being led by Sen. Lee is considering a government shutdown to block funding for the vaccine mandate.

The Hill reports:

If conservatives led by Senate Republican Steering Committee Chairman Mike Lee (R-Utah) refuse to yield back procedural time on the floor, it could take as long as nine days to approve a stopgap spending measure that would keep the government funded into late January or February.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters on Wednesday that talks to fund the government are “making good progress” but warned that a small group of Senate GOP conservatives could block the stop-gap by throwing up procedural hurdles.

“We’re making good progress on the CR. I hope a small group of Republicans don’t choose obstruction and try to shut down the government,” he said. “We need to come together and keep the government open.”

Senate conservatives led by Lee are discussing using their leverage over the Senate schedule to demand that Democrats defund Biden’s vaccine mandate on large employers.

However, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Americans should not be concerned about a government shutdown.

“We won’t shut down,” he said. “Sen. Shelby is engaged in discussions about not only how long the CR should last but certain conditions, sort of bright lines that we’ve had in these measures forever. For example, the Hyde Amendment. I think we’ll get there and certainly nobody should be concerned about a government shutdown.”

We need to shut down the federal behemoth until we can knock some sense into the politicians of BOTH parties to restore the government to an exegetically viewed Constitution, particularly related to Article 1, Section 8 the Enumerated Powers and the Bill of Rights.

Go ahead, shut down the government. It’s not like a shut-down hasn’t happened before and when it did, little to no damage was done. Considering who is in charge of the government now, shutting it down might just be the best thing for all of us. It might just be the proverbial 2×4 that’s needed to whack the progressive socialist Democrats in the head and straighten out their perverse thinking. At least if the government’s shut down, these amadans won’t be doing anymore damage for it’s duration.

I agree. And if Trump actually gets in again, I hope he actually becomes a dictator and facist like you and others have falsely accused him of in his first term; and eliminates every single one of you. Nothing would bring me more joy than to see you, and others like you, cast into Hellfire when you are ejected from that corpse. And once you are there, there is no getting out. Oh how lovely your screams will be. For eternity.

I never accused Trump of being a dictator.
Trump believes that what is best for the US is his singular leadership.
Stalin and Hitler thought the same way.
One party.
One man.

I think the duration of any shutdown should be severely limited to no more than 13 months. Unless somehow the socialists retain control of congress after the mid term elections. Then I could envision 37 months.

If the justice system continues to slam the door in Dementia Joe’ s face by ruling against his vax mandate the GOP won’t need to do anything for the mandate and any future shutdown to die on the vine. I wonder how long Biden will be able to defy federal rulings before he suffers consequences. I know he will be given plenty of rope because it’s embarrassing for the POTUS to “misbehave” and put himself above federal court decisions when he is clearly doing things that are unconstitutional and also acting like a Dictator!

Concerned?????? Hell, I hope the damn government shuts down for a long long time.

These morons we have in Congress have diluted themselves into thinking the American people care about keeping our CORRUPT government running. NO HONEST AMERICAN gives a damn about keeping the CORRUPT government running. Most honest Americans would like to see Congress blown up!

Finally, a Republican with enough chutzpah to get their head out of their collective sandboxes, open their eyes and stand for (or against) something. I’m proud of you, Representative Lee. I hope you get the support that this action deserves.
As an aside and possible benefit to your proposed action, I would support eliminating all of those positions considered to be “Non-essential” when the gov’t is shut down, be eliminated permanently. Non-essential implies that they are really not need. Just sayin’…

Oh that’s right — the pedophile and the tramp got 81 million votes — how many illegal ballots did you send in ?????? They may have gotten 100 thousand LEGAL votes and that might be pushing it. How’s your 2 idiots and their communist/libtard cabinet and appointees doing — after all one of the first things the senile corrupt pedophile did was make us dependent on the opec countries again — great move. Must be our congress missed their kickbacks,payoffs and bribe money from the middle east — you have to be so proud you voted for a dirtbag who actually put the scum muslim obama and carter the 2nd and 3rd worst presidents in our history.
