Senate set to vote on bill barring Biden vaccine mandate, likely to pass with Manchin support
But R Street Institute resident senior fellow for governance James Wallner said any votes on future legislative efforts against vaccine mandates are unlikely to have any actual effect.
“Whatever does happen either now or in the new year is going to be choreographed. It’s going to be something that’s set up in the Senate, almost always with unanimous consent between the two leaders,” Wallner said. “I would imagine that you will see, for instance, votes in the Senate that create the illusion that something like a vaccine mandate ban could pass before you’ll see an actual policy like that pass.”
