Vice President Kamala Harris is requiring negative COVID-19 tests from Senators and their guests if they want to take part in a swearing-in ceremony photo-op and one new GOP Senator said no thanks.
“We look forward to welcoming your Senator on January 3, 2023, to the ceremonial reenactment for incoming and newly re-elected Senators in the Old Senate Chamber,” Grisella Martinez, Harris’ director of legislative affairs, wrote to Senate offices.
“As you are aware, White House COVID-19 protocols require that anyone over two-years of age who will interact with the Vice President take a medically-administered antigen test within 24 hours prior to interaction, and receive a negative result.
“This policy applies regardless of vaccination status.”
Oklahoma Senator Markwayne Mullin refused and will not attend the photo op with his family.
Mullin said his family has things to do back in Oklahoma, like a wrestling tournament, and he didn’t want a false positive test to complicate things back in Oklahoma.
“I don’t really care about a picture with Kamala Harris,” Mullin added.
Mullin said, “we have too many career politicians that work up there on Capitol Hill.
“When you are a career politician you are always going to make political decisions, what’s best for me.”
He is a business owner and when you “come from a different background, you have a different outlook, a multiyear plan, a business approach — and if we take a business approach to this country, we will be better off.”
“When you’re a career politician, you’re going to always make political positions, what’s best for me?”
