Texas Sen. Ted Cruz gave his preliminary response to the CDC’s new steerage that absolutely vaccinated individuals don’t must put on a masks indoors or outdoor on “America Experiences,” Thursday, and stated “it is about rattling time.”
SEN. TED CRUZ: It is about rattling time that we must be following the science and never taking part in politics. And from the start of COVID, there’s been far an excessive amount of politics related to it.
Look, on the subject of masks, I’ve by no means understood the intense on both facet. I’ve by no means been a kind of individuals who stated, ‘By no means put on a masks.’ I’d put on a masks on an airplane, once I went to a grocery retailer, notably when the pandemic was raging.
However as soon as I bought my vaccine, as soon as different individuals have been getting vaccinated, I ended sporting masks.
And I bought to say, I feel Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been taking part in politics with COVID-19, they usually’ve been taking part in politics by retaining colleges shut down. The science is completely clear. Children must be at school, in-person immediately. The science is unequivocal on that…
However additionally they are taking part in politics on masks, that it by no means made any sense when you have been vaccinated to put on a masks. And sadly, Biden and Harris and the administration stored saying, put on a masks, put on masks, put on a masks, even if you happen to’re vaccinated. That discouraged lots of people from getting the vaccine.
So I feel the message individuals ought to listen to is: Get the vaccine, cease the unfold of the illness. It must be voluntary, however you need to be inspired to get the vaccine.
And one of many nice virtues, whenever you get the vaccine, you’ll be able to take the rattling masks off and return to common life. That ought to encourage hundreds of thousands extra individuals to decide on to get the vaccine.
