The Biden administration is working on a vaccine passport that Americans will need to show to prove they have obtained their Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus (COVID-19) vaccine before they can partake in trade in a “return to normalcy” that appears nothing like the past, The BL reported.
However, numerous elected Republicans, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Jim Jordan, Ronny Jackson, and Paul Gosar, oppose the vaccine passport proposals.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) expressed his rejection of implementing the vaccine passport in the United States. He promised to use his executive power to prevent it from becoming a requirement in his state.
The governor’s comments were in reaction to reports on Monday, March 29, announcing that the private sector is working with the Biden administration to implement a so-called vaccine passport that essentially gathers personal information about the person and advises whether the individual has received the CCP Virus vaccine.
“We’re not supportive of that. I think it’s something that people have certain freedoms and individual liberties to make decisions for themselves,” DeSantis said. He added, “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine just simply to be able to participate in normal society.”
DeSantis urged the Legislature to take action to protect his constituents but said he would use his emergency executive power if it came to that.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), the firebrand Congresswoman from Georgia, also said that vaccine passports are “Biden’s Mark of the Beast,” and any organization that needs one is practicing “corporate communism.”

–#COVID19 tests for American citizens to re-enter the country, but not migrants.
How about freedom?

We must say NO to any mandated “vaccine passport.” This isn’t about “stopping the spread,” it’s about CONTROL and restricting our RIGHTS. Vaccine passports = TYRANNY!

Arizona Republican Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) tweeted his disapproval of Biden’s vaccine passport scheme.

Fellow Florida politician Anthony Sabatini (R-Fla.), a current state representative and now 2022 congressional candidate, said that this is the United States of America, not Nazi Germany!
Vaccine passports are a HELL NO for him, and he’s doing whatever he can to prohibit them and work with Gov. DeSantis on this massive problem!
This is AMERICA… not Nazi Germany!
I am a HELL NO on Vaccine Passports and I’m doing everything in my power to BAN Vaccine Passports, and to work with Gov. DeSantis on this major issue!
