Joe Biden announced during a Thursday evening press conference that he will be issuing Covid-19 vaccine mandates for all federal employees as well as businesses with at least 100 employees.
“We’re going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers,” Joe Biden said during an address to the nation. “We’re gonna reduce the spread of Covid-19 by increasing the share of the workforce that is vaccinated in businesses all across America.”
To address concerns about how these mandates will impact individual rights and freedoms, Biden made it clear he is blatantly sidestepping them.
“This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden revoltingly said. “It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love. My job as president is to protect all Americans.”
Disregarding personal, medical, or religious reasons that some people may not wish to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, Biden stated the “refusal” of the unvaccinated “has cost all of us.”
“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said to the 80 million Americans who cannot or will not get the vaccine.
Joe Biden signed an executive order to take a “step further and require all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated” as well as contractors that do business with the federal government, according to Biden’s “Path Out Of The Pandemic” plan.
“Building on the President’s announcement in July to strengthen safety requirements for unvaccinated federal workers, the President has signed an Executive Order to take those actions a step further and require all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated. The President also signed an Executive Order directing that this standard be extended to employees of contractors that do business with the federal government,” the plan reads.
Furthermore, Biden signed a second executive order mandating vaccines for large employers with at least 100 employees or requiring unvaccinated employees to produce a negative test result every week before coming to work.
“The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work,” the plan states.
“OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement,” the measure’s text reads. “This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.”
Failure to meet the requirement may result in a $14,000 fine per violation, the Associated Press reported.
Pro-freedom lawmakers all over the country vowed to combat Biden’s unconstitutional decrees, including governors of Georgia, South Dakota, South Carolina, Arizona, and more.
“I will pursue every legal option available to the state of Georgia to stop this blatantly unlawful overreach by the Biden administration,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp tweeted.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem similarly tweeted that her “legal team is standing by ready to file our lawsuit the minute @joebiden files his unconstitutional rule.”
Henry McMaster, governor of South Carolina, tweeted that he will “fight them to the gates of hell to protect the liberty and livelihood of every South Carolinian.”
Governor of Arizona Doug Ducey ripped the Joe Biden administration tweeting, “This is exactly the kind of big government overreach we have tried so hard to prevent in Arizona.”
Many private employers subject to the mandate have also announced plans to fight back in court by suing the Biden administration. With both the public and private sector already pushing back against Biden’s dictatorial vaccine mandates, the White House could find it difficult to enforce them.
