It’s called the Congressional Review Act or CRA, and it’s every bit as awesome as it sounds. The Biden-Harris regime’s death spiral is continuing now as all fifty Republicans in the US Senate and the Democrat Senator from West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) have announced that they support a resolution under the act which would strike down the Biden White House’s attempts to administratively impose a vaccination mandate, even while the mandate has been struck down by the courts. But politically this is a brick wall for Biden.
Fox News reported,
“All 50 Senate Republicans, led by Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., backed a challenge to the vaccine mandate last month under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). That law allows Congress to officially disapprove of an executive branch regulation via a resolution passed through each chamber.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said last week he also supports the Braun resolution. “
“I do not support any government vaccine mandate on private businesses,” Manchin said told the press earlier in the week. Braun’s resolution will only require a simple majority to pass the Senate and is therefore almost certain to succeed.
Not Likely To Pass, But A Brick Wall That Hurts Biden, No Matter What
However, the companion legislation in the House faces an uphill battle with 206 cosponsors along party lines but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told reporters on Dec. 3rd that realistically its unlikely Speaker Pelosi would allow the bill to come to a vote.
“The challenge is how you bring it up on the floor,” he told reporters. “We’re not in the majority. We don’t control it.”
Ultimately, even if the CRA disapproval passed the House through some incredibly unlikely series of events, it can be easily cast aside and vetoed by Biden and there are absolutely insufficient votes in Congress to reverse a veto.
“It’ll come up likely again next week with the Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval,” Lee said Thursday. “That’s insufficient, of course. One of the defects with the CRA is that Congressional Review Act resolutions of disapproval are subject to presidential veto. So, the same president who abuses his executive power as this President has with these mandates, is certain to veto.”
While it seems ineffective on its face, such an action would absolutely force every single member of Congress to go on record and that is a nightmare scenario for them going into 2022 and 2024. The Congressional record is immutable
