Millions of Americans will be forced to adhere to vaccine mandates under President Joe Biden’s command.
To increase vaccination rates in the United States, Biden announced a six-part plan on Thursday to target approximately 100 million Americans, including federal employees, medical health workers, and large employees who are not vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, there are 151,500 COVID cases on average every day in the country, prompting the President to execute his authority over the public.
Hence, Biden expressed his frustration over unvaccinated citizens: “Despite having an unprecedented and successful vaccination program, despite the fact that for almost five months, free vaccines have been available at 80,000 different locations, we still have nearly 80 million Americans who have failed to get the shot.”
During his speech, the President complains how the government has grown impatient with Americans who refuse vaccinations.
“What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see?”
He further claims the safety of the vaccines, pointing out that a high percentage of the U.S. population has been vaccinated.
“We’ve made vaccinations free, safe, and convenient. The vaccine has FDA approval, over 200 million Americans have gotten at least one shot,” he said.
Biden seems to blame the non-vaccinated for the government’s inability to deal with COVID-19, saying that their refusal “has cost all of us.”
A new requirement is set forth for federal employees. About 80 million employees must take COVID vaccinations or conduct weekly employee testing. Otherwise, they would be terminated from their jobs.
President Joe Biden requested the U.S. Department of Labor that these conditions must also be applied to private companies with more than 100 employees.
In a statement, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said: “This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.”
Reactions to Biden Announcing Vaccine Mandates to Target 100 Million Americans
I don’t even know what to say anymore. Unconstitutional on every front. America is no longer the land of the free. Whether you are willing to admit it or not, we are witnessing a dictatorship take shape in front of our own eyes.
