COSA Poll: Majority of voters support bill to block Biden's vaccine mandate

Published in Blog on January 11, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Under the constitutional system the Founders constructed, Congress would be the sole body theoretically capable of issuing a nationwide vaccine mandate. This is not to say they would have the power to do so, only that Congress is the only body constitutionally charged with creating laws.

The President certainly doesn't have this authority, but thanks to bad Supreme Court decisions, executive power has steadily increased over the last 100 years. Now, Joe Biden believes he has the power to issue a nationwide vaccine mandate for millions of Americans and thousands of businesses.

Unfortunately for him, the American people don't agree. 

According to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, a majority of Americans (51.1%) and huge majorities of Republican (73.3%) and Independents (62.9%) support a bill in Congress that would block Biden's mandate.

These Americans recognize that Congress should be the only federal body able to issue such sweeping new laws, and they're calling on their representatives to block the overreach from the White House.

“In this poll we see that a good number of voters are not aware of the measure in Congress to block Biden’s vaccine mandate, but among those who are aware, big majorities support the effort, even a third of voters in Biden’s own party,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “This is the defining issue of the 2022 election cycle. Elected officials will be held accountable for their position, they cannot hide from this. They either believe that Americans should preserve our Constitutional freedoms we have enjoyed for over 230 years, or they believe bureaucrats in Washington, DC should be empowered to trample on personal liberty.”

  • 62.9 percent of Independent voters with an opinion on the issue said they support the bill in Congress to block President Biden’s attempts to mandate vaccines for employees of large businesses. 37.1 percent said they do not support the bill.
  • 73.3 percent of Republican voters with an opinion on the issue said they support the bill in Congress to block President Biden’s attempts to mandate vaccines for employees of large businesses. 26.7 percent said they do not support the bill.
  • 32.5 percent of Democrat voters with an opinion on the issue said they support the bill in Congress to block President Biden’s attempts to mandate vaccines for employees of large businesses. 67.5 percent said they do not support the bill.

Congress is too spineless to act on its own. As we saw during the Obamacare debates when Republicans controlled both chambers, neither party is willing to step up and deliver on their campaign promises.

That's why we should turn to the people, the states, and Article V of the Constitution.

Article V allows the states to call a Convention of States that has the power to propose constitutional amendments that shrink executive power. These amendments can limit the power of the president, ban executive orders, and clarify that Congress--and only Congress--can make laws.

This package of amendments will limit the size of the federal government by shrinking the jurisdiction of federal agencies and ensure that all major laws go through Congress, not OSHA, the ATF, or the EPA.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
