Sen. Marshall Previews Legislation to End COVID State of Emergency on FOX News
(Washington, D.C., February 13, 2022) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. today was on FOX News’ Sunday Morning Futures to preview legislation he intends to introduce next week to put an end to the COVID-19 state of emergency. Senator Marshall said in part,
“It is time for us to take the power and control of our everyday lives out of the hands of Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci. Americans are ready to turn the page and live their own lives. I say this in the background that 95% of Americans have some sort of immunity to COVID, the new case rate is about 10% of what it was a couple weeks ago. It is time to move on and take the power and control back to Americans… And, Congress can seize it back – we need to stand up and do our job and seize back that power. We have the ability to do it.”

Senator Marshall also spoke about his resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to halt President Biden’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate for virtually all healthcare employees and prevent any similar rule from being proposed in the future. This resolution is expected to receive a vote on the Senate floor this week. In today’s interview, Senator Marshall said in part,
“Think about this Medicare vaccine mandate – this week it will go into effect and it’s going to impact every hospital, every doctor’s office, every nursing home in America. We already have a huge nursing shortage, and I think of those nurses I stood beside in March, April, and May in 2020 that were working in an ICU and now have natural immunity but Joe Biden wants to fire them. So, we have to stop that mandate. There is not a person in America that won’t be impacted by this. Whether you’re waiting to have an elective surgery done or you have a loved one you are trying to get into some sort of nursing facility.”
