Our friend Thomas Massie’s bill to end the travel ban will be voted on this week.
The bill would repeal Biden’s order barring the three billion or so people who have declined COVID vaccination from entering the United States, including reigning Australian Open Champion Novak Djokovic.
It has been six months since the CDC recommended against public health policies based on whether someone is vaccinated.
“CDC’s COVID-19 prevention recommendations no longer differentiate based on a person’s vaccination status because breakthrough infections occur, though they are generally mild, and persons who have had COVID-19 but are not vaccinated have some degree of protection against severe illness from their previous infection.”
If Congress keeps the ban in place, this will put America in an exclusive league of countries we probably don’t want to be emulating.
