United States Sen. Chuck Grassley’s campaign sent out a press release on Tuesday in hopes of “setting the record straight” in regards to vaccination passports for travel.
Here is what Sen. Jim Carlin said:
Grassley’s campaign said he does not support vaccination passports and claimed Carlin is “misleading” voters with his “false” claim.
However, The Iowa Standard asked Grassley about vaccination passports being required for travel and what protections are in place for Americans wishing to remain unvaccinated while still traveling the country. Here is what he said:
“Well, I don’t know if that’d keep people from traveling or not. I’d suppose if that was a requirement and you wanted to travel by airplane, or I suppose it could apply to train as well, you might not be able to travel the way you want to travel. You’ll have to find other ways of traveling, which obviously might be by car. But I don’t see the federal government forcing people to get vaccinated.”
Certainly, that answer offered little opposition to vaccine mandates in order to travel. And obviously the federal government did force people to get vaccinated.
Carlin’s campaign said Grassley was “cherry-picking” his past votes to paint Grassley as a medical freedom candidate, which “he most certainly is not.”
“He failed to include this recording (above recording), where he states exactly what my campaign has taken issue with,” Carlin said. “He chose seven votes to showcase, but he conveniently forgot to include his recent vote to pass Biden’s $1.5 trillion spending bill which funded Biden’s vaccine mandates, provided $6.3 billion to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (which is run by Anthony Fauci), gave nearly half a billion in funding to the CDC who had taken active part in spreading the liberal COVID propaganda and agenda, gave $4 billion to CMS WHILE they were actively enforcing vaccine mandates against thousands of America’s healthcare workers.
“He also chose not to reference his entire history of votes, as detailed in this very informative article by The Iowa Standard, “Chuck Grassley’s Voting Record has Led Iowans into Medical Tyranny.” It breaks down the history of legislation Grassley voted for that paved the way for the medical tyranny Americans have faced over the past two years.”
Carlin’s campaign asked why Grassley received a 1.4 out of 5 stars from Informed Choice Iowa if he is a medical freedom champion.
Carlin received a 4.9 rating out of 5 and was endorsed by 13 other patriot organizations for standing in support of medical freedom.
“Grassley can peddle himself as a medical freedom fighter all he wants, but Americans have been paying attention,” Carlin said. “He’s not going to pull the wool over the eyes of those who have lost their livelihoods, had their religious exemptions denied or couldn’t further their education due to these mandates.
“While I fight for your medical freedom, Grassley tries to trick you so he can cling to his power. Stand up to medical tyranny and say no to the political elite who caused it by voting Jim Carlin on June 7.”
