PowerUp: U.S. Rep. Fitzgerald on Biden’s power grab

As the Biden administration faces the opening round of what promises to be a flood of lawsuits, the Land of the Free has entered a scary era of government overreach.

U.S. Rep. Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) says the tyranny of President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates is only equaled by the hypocrisy of the Big Government set.

“I’m experiencing it right now as a member of congress,” the congressman told Empower Wisconsin’s M.D. Kittle Tuesday on the Vicki McKenna Show.

“They continue to set up multiple tiers of what they think is acceptable. The hypocrisy is, if you look on the floor of the House of Representatives right now with fines being levied — ‘You Will Wear a Mask’ —  but as soon as you cross through the doorway into the cloak room, Democrats and Republicans, all masks come off and it’s a free-for-all right behind that wall.”

Fitzgerald also discussed his CRT transparency legislation and a bill he co-sponsored that would check third-party groups like the Mark Zuckerberg-funded liberal organizations that infiltrated the 2020 presidential election.

Rep. Scott Fitzgerald is our guest today on this edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
