(TheConservativeNews.org) – President Joe Biden, during his campaign to become President of the United States (POTUS), asserted that he was against certain mandates. Despite that, it seems his stance on some issues has changed, and the president is now making threats against people who don’t follow new vaccination orders.
Jen Psaki, Biden’s press secretary, stated on September 9 that the more than 2.1 million people working for the federal government have 75 days to get fully vaccinated, or they may face termination. The mandate impacts the executive branch and leaves out the congressional and judicial branches. Psaki added that the government will enforce it with limited exceptions, which include religious reasons and some disability waivers.
Biden’s vaccine mandate goes against the liberal ideology of “my body, my choice.” Union workers, who typically support Democratic leadership, have found the president’s latest requirements unsettling. The largest union of federal workers in the United States, the American Federation of Government Employees, asserted they would bargain the order, citing that the workers deserve a voice. Some federal employees, such as Republican Rob Wittman, a Congressman from Virginia, stated that he objected to the vaccine mandate.
Perhaps the real question here is whether these changes are actually going to make a difference. After all, even the CDC admits the effectiveness of the vaccine has been waning. Vaccinated people are still contracting the virus. Will the mandate impact the spread, or is this latest move simply an overreach of executive power?
