The federal employee unions are agreeing to President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates for all federal employees, but the Republican National Committee is having none of it — not for federal workers or the private workforce.
On Thursday, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the party will sue the Biden Administration over his executive orders that require most American workers to get vaccinated.
“Joe Biden told Americans when he was elected that he would not impose vaccine mandates. He lied,” McDaniel said. “Now small businesses, workers, and families across the country will pay the price.”
“Like many Americans, I am pro-vaccine and anti-mandate,” McDaniel said. “Many small businesses and workers do not have the money or legal resources to fight Biden’s unconstitutional actions and authoritarian decrees, but when his decree goes into effect, the RNC will sue the administration to protect Americans and their liberties.”
Earlier Thursday, the president unveiled that he is forcing companies with more than 100 employees to require workers be vaccinated against Covid-19 or face penalties from the federal government of $14,000 per violation.
“This is not about freedom or personal choice. 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,” Biden said.
Alaska District 14 Republicans, which is the Eagle River area of Anchorage, issued a statement that makes it clear the president has overstepped his authority:
“Our forefathers, the founders of this country, fled the tyrannical governments of the known world at the time. They hacked this country out of the wilderness. They became landowners, established farms and small businesses to realize the American dream. They wrote the US Constitution to establish the laws to run a just government of the people, by the people, and for the people.What we witnessed today out of Biden’s mouth, reflects the tyranny of those governments the American people fled to establish liberty and justice for all Americans. With the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks only two days away he now moves to enslave the American People to the Tyranny we came here to escape. The Veterans that have served since 9/11 now feel the same emotional betrayal our Vietnam Bothers and Sisters felt.”
