Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) admitted that there is no point in COVID-19 vaccine mandates on Sunday morning.
“The mandates are pointless,” Johnson told host Maria Bartiromo, according to The Gateway Pundit. “Now that we know that fully vaccinated individuals are getting infected, they can transmit the disease. Unfortunately, they are being hospitalized. They’re getting seriously ill. They’re dying. There’s no point to the mandate whatsoever. ”

Johnson went on to talk about the dangers of the vaccines, saying, “They’re completely ignoring the vaccine injuries. And Maria, people really need to understand this because it’s not being reported. It’s being suppressed.”
“But over 25 years with the flu vaccine, there were a little less than 1,700 deaths reported on the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS),” he continued. “That’s CDC’s early surveillance security system… With the COVID Vaccine, we’ve had 16,766 deaths in 10 months administering this vaccine.”
The VAERS website states that there have been 16,766 deaths from the COVID vaccine so far. Johnson went on to say that 5,400 of these deaths occurred within two days of taking the vaccine.
During this same interview, Johnson said he is hoping for a “Democratic gridlock” on President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
“I hope for Democrat gridlock,” Johnson said. “Oftentimes, in Washington, D.C., gridlock is the better alternative, but when it’s Democrat gridlock, pray for it. I hope that’s exactly what happens.”

This comes after Johnson sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin questioning the Department of Defense’s vaccine mandate due to the fact that troops have told him that they were receiving shots not licensed by the Food and Drug Administration.
Fox News reported that Johnson claimed that “multiple sources” have told his office that “the Department of Defense’s (DoD) mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations may not be in accordance with Secretary of Defense Austin’s August 24, 2021 memorandum” because they are yet to receive “full licensure” from the FDA.
Johnson also asked the DoD to provide to him all documents and guidelines regarding the vaccine mandate.
“The Senator’s concerns are twofold: that service members are mandated to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and regardless, service members may not be receiving the fully approved vaccine pursuant to the mandate,” said a spokesperson for Johnson, adding that vaccine mandates for service members and other professionals risk exacerbating “severe worker shortages,” most notably in health care settings.
“Vaccine mandates will increase these shortages and degrade our health care system,” the spokesperson said. “Reports on how mandates could weaken military readiness should concern every American, especially our commander-in-chief.”
