Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney told the media Friday that Americans need to have their freedoms suspended over the coronavirus and that he favors forced vaccines.
Romney said he feels that the virus is too dangerous to allow people the freedom to choose their own medical path and that government should step in and make the decision for everyone, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Per the paper:
The most vocal anti-vaccine and anti-mask citizens like to point to individual liberty to justify their choices, Romney said.
“People say, ‘I want my liberty.’ Well, your liberty affects my health. When that occurs, we have to come to some sort of agreement,” he said.Trending:
Romney also favors vaccine mandates for private businesses. If he was still in the private sector, he said he would require his employees to be vaccinated or be responsible for getting tested a every week.
He went on to say that he thinks mask mandates should be made at the state level but added that he hopes his grandchildren’s schools implement mask mandates.
There is no science whatever behind masking children. All comprehensive studies show that masking children is useless to prevent the virus.
But the fact that this so-called Republican is calling for the suspension over American freedoms is beyond the pale.
Romney is now and always has been a disgrace.
