Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) claimed President Joe Biden was "bullying" people to get the Covid-19 vaccine after the president called for a door-to-door vaccine push Reaching Millions of Unvaccinated Americans.
"Joe Biden plans to send door-to-door armies of masked government bureaucrats to urge Americans to get a vaccine. That's wrong! "Jackson wrote." The government can never force you to get a Covid vaccine. We shouldn't force someone to take a picture they don't want or need! "
Jackson shared his comments over footage of an interview he gave Fox News criticizing the vaccine push.
"It is not the government's job to dictate whether we get this vaccine," he said before admitting that he received the vaccine after assessing his own "personal situation".
"It should be a personal choice for every single American," he said before deriding the vaccine as "experimental." "The federal government has no right to tell Americans to have this vaccine, and it's none of their business who had it and who didn't."
Jackson further accused the Democrats of being "socialists, communists, Marxists" and of wanting to "control everything".

Biden doubled up on trying to convince people to get vaccinated.
"Please get vaccinated now. It works out. It's free, "Biden said in a White House statement. “It has never been easier and it has never been more important. Do it now for yourself and the people who are important to you, for your neighborhood, for your country. It sounds cheesy, but it's a patriotic thing. "
"Please, please, get vaccinated," he added. "That makes a big difference."
According to the most recent CDC data, only 47.7% of Americans are fully vaccinated.
