Over the last month, the United States has witnessed two shocking actions raken by President Joe Biden. Not only did Biden leave behind hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan, but he's now acting like a tyrant by recently signing an executive order imposing a vaccine mandate for millions of Americans.
In the EO, if a business with 100 employees or more does not force their employees to get weekly COVID-19 testing or a COVID vaccine, the federal government will fine them up to $14,000.00 per violation.
While congressional Democrats impeached President Donald Trump for a phone call and words spoken at a rally, Republicans have been mostly silent in terms of bringing some action against the 46th president.
Neither the Senate or House GOP leadership has called for the impeachment or removal of the president beyond tweeting ambiguous messages. A question arises, especially before the 2022 midterms, why neither of the Republican conferences is attempting to fight harder against a foreign policy disaster and an authoritarian executive order.
The Senate and the House GOP leadership need to learn from how Reps. Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and Lauren Boebert of Colorado approached these atrocities.
The congresswomen worked on calling for the impeachment of the president, as well as worked on actual articles to send to the House floor. These women, freshman members of the GOP congressional delegation, set the tone for how the GOP needs to stand up against the Biden administration.
Tone-setting is the name of the game when it comes to politics.
When voters see which party has the confidence to stand up and not be pushed around constantly by the other, they likely will come away impressed by the passion shown by that party. However, there has been such a lack of action on behalf of the GOP for some unknown reason that voters have seen virtually nothing except strongly worded statements.
Whether it is articles of impeachment, helping state legislatures fight back against federal orders, or filing bills to ensure executive power gets shrunk for the sake of federalism, Congress must do something to fight back against their government risking lives and the Constitution itself. Republican leaders have to stand up with meaninful action if they want to win in 2022, by energizing their base by proving they will do something with the power they have instead of rolling over.
