Where does Ed stand on COVID-19 vaccine mandates?

Answer: Ed does not support vaccine mandates. The individual’s power to make decisions for their own health should be preserved and promoted. The danger of government bureaucrats and corporations making medical decisions for the rest of us cannot be understated. Families should be empowered through informed consent.

There is a severe conflict of interest in mandating a vaccine when billions of dollars are on the line as with the COVID-19 vaccine.

How will Ed pay for his plan to abolish Idaho Income Tax? Will we lose essential services?
