Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee stand up against Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) testing requirement. In a press conference Wednesday, the GOP members addressed an email from Schiff demanding lawmakers provide a negative COVID-19 test in order to attend Thursday’s hearing.
Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) said everyday Americans don’t have the luxury or access to test daily and must show medical information to go about their daily lives. He said they will not comply while this is going on.
“Schiff believes that he should have a privilege that the average American worker does not,” stated the Ohio Republican. “Our members will not comply with Schiff’s request that we submit to COVID testing just to do our job.”
Turner went on to criticize the Biden administration’s failure to meet the demand for testing. The White House launched a website on Wednesday to help Americans obtain free at-home rapid COVID-19 tests, but many critics say it’s a little late.
The full website opened after a soft opening on Tuesday that resulted in some customers not being able to order their tests. Americans are able to go on the website — covidtests.gov — and fill in their information to get tests mailed to their homes without charge. Each household is limited to four tests regardless of family size.
This comes as Joe Biden recently announced his administration was planning to purchase 1 billion tests as part of the program.
Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
