51 Congress members co-sponsoring Rep. Andy Biggs HR-79, WHO Withdrawal Act.
To thank them for standing up, contact their offices.
As James Roguski reported recently:
As of September 14, 2023, 50+ members of the House of Representatives have signed on as co-sponsors of the WHO Withdrawal Act (H.R.79)…
However, not even one senator has shown the courage to simply copy H.R. 79 and submit it as companion legislation in the Senate.
Text of the bill and list of the 51 co-sponsors is below.
To thank these men and women for their clear-eyed leadership and encourage them to keep fighting and to fight harder, louder and more visibly, please contact their offices.
