Trenton NJ, United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew released the following statement blasting New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy for his decision to impose one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country by eliminating a weekly testing option for healthcare workers as well as corrections officers and instituting a new state policy that amounts to ‘get vaccinated or get fired.’

“How many people need to lose their lives and livelihoods on Phil Murphy’s watch before he stops playing political games and putting his national political ambitions ahead of the health, safety, and welfare of the people he literally just took an oath to protect,” asked Van Drew who is also a member of the House Republican Doctors Caucus. “Let’s be clear, this is the same Governor who was praising these same people he now wants to fire as “front line heroes” and had no problem packing thousands of Covid positive patients into nursing homes killing thousands of our state’s most vulnerable residents and ultimately leading our state to have the highest Covid-19 death rate per capita anywhere on the entire planet. Murphy’s latest executive order has absolutely nothing to do with science and everything to do with flexing his political power well beyond its Constitutional limits which is why the State Senate and State Assembly should immediately vote to repeal this executive order or be forced to justify it to their constituents who will soon be feeling its chilling effects.

  1. The Assembly and Senate have shown in the past that they lack either the courage or the principles to go against this man who cares not what others think.

    Especially since it’s his lame duck term and nobody can do anything to him.

  2. He is doing his job .No shot no job

    1. you don’t have a job have a job so no worries

  3. We had virus A and a vaccine was made to treat it. It worked OK for a couple of months, and probably should be administered to those that are at high risk. Now we have virus C and the vaccine does not help stop it transmitting or getting the virus, nor does it keep you from getting sick.
    Why on Gods green earth would someone get this vaccine, that does nothing for the current C virus? And how on earth could someone see the logic in mandating a vaccine, produced for a variant that is no longer with us?
    Makes one wonder, what is really going on here? There is zero logic to this, none.

  4. It is good that someone stands up for the true science. Forcing people to lose their jobs when they were on the front lines when there was no vaccine, is utterly ridiculous. Now, to have them take it for a variant it apparently doesn’t prevent and to say it will protect others that are being exposed to these workers, makes you see how stupid they think we, the people, are. Too bad, we see through this! Just shows how money is a wonderful motivation…
