Plenty of Republican lawmakers have spoken out in opposition to the Biden administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Much of that criticism has hinged on the sweeping vaccine and mask mandates handed down by the leftist White House.
Of course, there are many other reasons that some in the GOP believe Biden has dropped the ball.
In one notable recent example, a pair of Republican senators are addressing what they describe as federal overreach regarding a doctor’s ability to treat patients.

As the Daily Caller explained in an exclusive report:

The Daily Caller first obtained the legislation which was cosponsored by Republican Indiana Sen. Mike Braun and Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee. The bill is titled the “The Right to Treat Act” and would make it so no federal agency would have the authority to regulate the practice of medicine and that no federal law, rule, regulation, or policy would restrict the distribution of FDA approved drugs or a Right to Try drug.
Many other countries have experimented with other drugs to help prevent or treat COVID-19. The drug Ivermectin has reportedly been investigated in Japan and in the U.K. In early February, a Japanese pharmaceutical company found that Ivermectin had an “antiviral effect” against COVID-19.
The drug has not been approved by the FDA but made news after podcaster Joe Rogan said he used the drug to battle COVID-19 when he was infected. Whereas some doctors reportedly say the drug works, the FDA recommends not taking the drug to treat or prevent COVID-19.
While progressive politicians and pundits have fiercely advocated for vaccination against the virus, most have played down the potential benefits of certain treatments.
Popular podcaster Joe Rogan was at the center of this controversy after he heralded his unconventional treatment following a COVID-19 diagnosis.
His podcast in general has faced backlash from the left over supposed misinformation regarding the virus.
Having failed with phase one (“misinformation!”) and phase two (“racist!”), CNN has moved onto phase three, in which Joe Rogan is linked to insurrection, genocide, and segregation, and accused of helping undermine the progress the U.S. has made since 1945. https://t.co/pFsg9RUUIR— Charles C.

Although several aging musicians have removed their respective catalogs from Spotify in protest of the podcast, the streaming service continues to stand by the controversial comedian.
That makes sense, after all, since Rogan remains a lucrative commodity for Spotify.
As Fox Business explained:
According to earlier reports, the streaming service allegedly paid $100 million to exclusively host the 54-year-old’s podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” But on Thursday, two people who are familiar with the transaction told The New York Times that the true value of the deal is “at least” $200 million “with the possibility of more.”
The insiders spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the details of the deal, the outlet shared.
The lavish purchase was considered “extraordinary.” Company filings showed that Spotify had purchased entire content companies Gimlet Media and The Ringer for slightly less than $200 million each.
Whether they agree with everything he says or not, many of Rogan’s supporters say it is vital for him to retain his public platform.
As it stands, his is one of the few mainstream shows in which audiences can hear about the experimental treatments that the Senate proposal hopes to protect.
In the following clip, Rogan defends himself against critics while vowing to present a more balanced view of divisive issues.
Do you believe Rogan and others should be censored for sharing so-called misinformation?
