Rep. Gohmert Files Bill to Make Pres. Biden Follow his own Dictatorial Mandates

Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) issued the following statement on his bill, H.R. 811, which would require President Biden and the Executive branch to abide by executive orders that impose dictatorial mandates on the American people:

"For far too long, Washington elites have lived by the mantra, “do as I say, not as I do.” 

"Only hours after signing a totalitarian and unconstitutional executive order mandating mask wearing and social distancing protocols on all federal properties, President Biden visited a national monument with his family—maskless and not socially distant from each other. His rank hypocrisy was on full display.

"The reason given by his administration for his blatant violation of his own mandate? He was “celebrating” his inauguration. 

"Millions of American families have sacrificed and suffered since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. They also gave up family gatherings, birthday celebrations, christenings, weddings and graduations because government told them it was absolutely necessary. They were forced to let loved ones take their last dying breaths scared and alone in hospitals and nursing homes because of cruel visitation policies. 

"President Biden’s actions are a slap in the face to every single American who has seen their God-given rights eroded by power-hungry, science-denying Leftists in government who wish to rule this nation by fear, not facts.

"It is my hope that this bill will remind the President and his administration that if they are going to take away freedom, they need to abide by their own dictatorial commandments."
