Joe Biden’s lawless presidency reached its apex.
But now Biden is facing a legal fight in unfriendly terrain.
And Joe Biden got dragged into court and this jaw-dropping response will turn your stomach.
Joe Biden finally announced that his federal vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 workers will go into effect on January 4.
Republican-run states and companies immediately filed lawsuits.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay blocking the order from taking effect until the Biden administration could respond to the lawsuits arguing the federal vaccine mandate was unconstitutional because only Congress could pass a law imposing a national vaccine requirement.
Surgeon General Vivek Murthy appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and defended the authoritarian mandate arguing that Biden believed forcing employers to impose vaccine requirements on their workforce was necessary despite the fact that over 80 percent of eligible Americans already received at least one dose of the vaccine.
“Well, Martha, the president and the administration wouldn’t have put these requirements in place if they didn’t think they were appropriate and necessary. The administration is certainly prepared to defend them, but let’s step back for a moment and just look at why these are so important. Throughout our history that we have seen, we had to use vaccine requirements to protect the population, starting back with George Washington when he required troops be inoculated for smallpox, and schools started having vaccine requirements. If you think about our workplace, it’s important our workplaces are safe, that workers feel safe, and our customers feel safe. We know at this point in the pandemic when we’ve come so far, and we have 75,000 cases a day, it’s important we take every measure possible to make our workplaces safer,” Murthy stated.
Despite Murthy’s gaslighting, the federal government has never before imposed a national vaccine mandate on the general population.
George Washington vaccinating soldiers directly under the command of the Continental Congress is not the same thing as the federal government forcing employers to police their workforces’ vaccination status.
Under questioning from host Martha Raddatz, Surgeon General Murthy hinted that this vaccine mandate was just the beginning.
Murthy explained that if the vaccine mandate for employers with more than 100 employees survived court challenges the administration would then impose the vaccine mandate on small businesses with fewer than 100 workers.
“Well, Martha, certainly nothing is off the table at this moment, but the focus is implementing the current rule that OSHA put out. Let me just emphasize that what we put out in a report recently is that average businesses that put these requirements in place see a 20% vaccination rate increase, boosting them in the 90s. If vaccines are a key pathway out of the pandemic, this will do a lot to get us toward the finish line,” Murthy concluded.
