On Friday, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced the Freedom to Breathe Act, the companion to Senator J.D. Vance’s bill in the Senate, to prohibit the federal government from reimposing ineffective and draconian mask mandates on American travelers and students. America’s so-called “public health experts” pushed mask mandates on Americans knowing they didn’t work. “Dr. Fauci privately recommended not wearing a mask to his close friends, admitting they weren’t effective, yet he provided nationwide public health guidance stating Americans be required to mask in nearly all social settings, including while on public transit and in schools,” noted Greene. “Even Joe Biden himself declared the pandemic is over! We cannot allow our country to be sucked back into the COVID hysteria that ushered in unscientific and nonsensical health mandates like blanket masking policies.”
Congresswoman Greene’s bill is a resolute stance against unwarranted government intrusion by the Biden Administration and “public health experts,” ensuring that medical decisions remain a private matter between individuals and their physicians. This legislation:
Preserves Freedom: Prohibits any federal official, including the President, from issuing orders mandating mask-wearing on passenger flights within the US national airspace system, on public transit, or within educational institutions (primary, secondary, and colleges).
Ensures Equal Access: Prevents Commercial Air Carriers, public transit authorities, and educational institutions from denying services to individuals who choose not to wear masks or other face coverings.
Prioritizes Rational Response: Bars the Secretary of Health and Human Services from mandating masks or face coverings for plane or train passengers and students during public health emergencies.
Controls Federal Spending: Restricts federal funding allocation for proposing, establishing, implementing, or enforcing mask requirements on airline and public transit passengers and students.
Promptly Implements: Mandates that all agencies issue new and revised guidance within 90 days of enactment to ensure proper implementation, preempting any conflicting laws or guidance.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene believes that preserving individual freedoms and applying sound science can go hand in hand. The Freedom to Breathe Act is a testament to this belief. “Public health experts” divided Americans and created different classes based on compliance with their mandates, backed by “science” which has been disproven time and time again. This bill aims to protect the rights and welfare of all Americans.
Upon introduction, Congresswoman Greene’s bill has thirteen original cosponsors: Rep. Duncan (SC), Rep. Collins (GA), Rep. Miller (IL), Rep. Zinke (MT), Rep. Rosendale (MT), Rep. Ogles (TN), Rep. Santos (NY), Rep. Tiffany (WI), Rep. Posey (FL), Rep. Norman (SC), Rep. Gooden (TX), Rep. Bishop (NC), and Rep. Guest (MS).
