CNN’s survey found 14 House members who confirmed on the record they had not been vaccinated: one Democrat — Rep. Chris Pappas of New Hampshire — and 13 Republicans, Reps. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee, Kat Cammack of Florida, Elise Stefanik of New York, Gus Bilirakis of Florida, James Comer of Kentucky, Brian Mast of Florida, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Ken Buck of Colorado, Michael Waltz of Florida and Dan Crenshaw of Texas.
Many of those, however, argued they had waited because they didn’t want to “skip the line” and did have plans to be vaccinated.
“We are members of Congress, but we aren’t a privileged class,” Duncan said, noting he is getting his vaccination Tuesday.
“I am waiting for people. I am old, but I am not the oldest yet, so I am waiting for everyone else who is older to be vaccinated,” Jordan, who’s 57, said. “I am in no hurry.”
