In a sweeping edict defying any ever coming from a U.S. president, Joe Biden has ordered mandatory vaccines for employees of any company with 100 or more working for them.
Not only that, failure to comply with the order will result in fines to the businesses of up to $14,000 per violation. Biden also ordered businesses to give time off to employees to receive the vaccine.
In the edict, Biden ordered all federal employees to be vaccinated, with certain ones including postal workers (600,000) and members of Congress being exempt. Biden did not make any exceptions for persons who have already had COVID and recovered, and who have antibodies to the virus.
The Republican National Committee quickly announced that they would sue the Biden administration for issuing an “unconstitutional mandate.”
Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse told the Daily Caller, “President Biden is so desperate to distract from his shameful, incompetent Afghanistan exit that he is saying crazy things and pushing constitutionally flawed executive orders. This is a cynical attempt to pick a fight and distract from the President’s morally disgraceful decision to leave Americans behind Taliban lines on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem added in a tweet that “South Dakota will stand up to defend freedom @JoeBiden see you in court.”
