WASHINGTON D.C. – Indiana Sen. Mike Braun, anticipating new guidelines by the CDC on the use of masks, claimed mandates issued in the past did not work.
Braun issued a statement saying he’s worried that the country is headed back to how the heavy hand of government dealt with COVID in the first place.
My observation is when you put the task to businesses and Main Street, they did everything to keep their employees and customers safe.
Previous recommendations, Braun said, were failed policies that hurt the economy.
“There was no data to show that it worked with the oppressive, heavy-handed government approach to being with,” Braun said in the statement issued by his office.
“I’m going to be a voice for saying, hey, let this be solved at the grassroots level. Let local governments and businesses deal with it.,” he said. “Be respectful of the disease, but exercise individual responsibility. That’s the key.”
