Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said that he wants House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other leaders within the party to call out “garbage politicians” who are playing into fears of Americans who are hesitant or reluctant to get the COVID-19 vaccine. “Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene compared those going door to door to Nazi brownshirts,” CNN host Jake Tapper said.

It is on its way to the ground,” Kinzinger said.
