AUSTIN – Texans For Greg Abbott today released a new web video highlighting the Biden Administration’s history of hypocrisy on COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The video shows footage from the past few months of the Biden Administration denouncing vaccine mandates and claiming that there would be no federal vaccine requirement for the American people—before mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for private businesses last week.
“Issuing a vaccine mandate is wrong, plain and simple. The Biden Administration said so themselves.”
