All 212 members of the Republican House conference are backing Representative Fred Keller’s Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to combat Biden’s vaccine mandates on businesses. The incredible tally means a 218 majority is well within reach for Keller, a Republican from Pennsylvania.
🚨All 212 members of @HouseGOP have cosponsored my Congressional Review Act resolution to nullify President Biden’s vaccine mandate on private employers with more than 100 employees.
I urge my House Democratic colleagues to stand with us against this blatant gov’t overreach. pic.twitter.com/YX9ivKXJPD

Perhaps the biggest threat to this act is going to be the potential of a presidential veto.
When asked about the issue, Keller said he thinks he will have “enough members of Congress to say you don’t have that authority and we’d override a veto.”
Keller’s off to a good start for sure, and seems to be fairing just as well on the Senate side of things. All 50 Senate Republicans, as well as Democrat Joe Manchin have already pledged their support for the Senate’s version of the bill.
