This legislation recognizes that vaccine mandates are not contemplated by the Constitution at all and goes on to firmly condemn the flawed ethics of executive branch leadership to use force and coercion, threatening the loss of employment and benefits, against those who choose not to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Dear Representative Gohmert,
On behalf of the 2.2 million members of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, including over 7,700 members residing in TX-01, I write to convey our support for H.R. 5092, a bill to protect our lives and liberties from the immoral and unethical federal Covid-19 vaccine mandate.
Healthcare decisions are deeply personal and must be made with due care after considering all the factors that may affect a person’s wellbeing. A person of sound mind in these United States, a nation that recognizes that we have the God given right to life and liberty, has by extension the prerogative to consult professional medical advice, examine their own conscience, and choose whether a vaccination, or any other medical procedure is right for them. Executive Orders and agency level mandates do in no way supersede this individual right, especially when this choice is between a person’s strongly held religious belief, their medical wellbeing, and keeping their job; and especially when the medical profession (in the case of Covid-19 vaccine options) has no consensus on the safety and efficacy of the experimental
treatments available to our citizenry. In addition, the federal government has sustained a profound loss of talent and human capital because federal employees have chosen to leave, were removed from federal service, or have sustained a critical health related injury because of the unconstitutional imposition of vaccine mandates.
Even more, the Executive Branch, via a letter titled “Federal Law Protections for Religious Liberty” has affirmed the presence of the protections of our First Amendment right to freedom of religious expression and that these rights are not rescinded for federal employees because they serve the government. For those to whom it applies, their choice to refuse a Covid-19 vaccination on religious grounds is a protected choice under our Constitution.
Your bill presents sixteen cogent points, points that AMAC finds valid and relevant, against the imposition of federal level vaccine mandates by the President or any other federal agency. The legislation recognizes that vaccine mandates are not contemplated by the Constitution at all and goes on to firmly condemn the flawed ethics of executive branch leadership to use force and coercion, threatening the loss of employment and benefits, against those who choose not to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
AMAC thanks you, Representative Gohmert, for your vision and strong leadership in introducing this important legislation to protect all Americans from executive branch overreach and future violations of our Constitution.
