It is official. The Biden Admin has declared a full war on the unvaccinated. They are going all in on this with insufficient scientific backing. The states and people are fighting back.
Biden announced on Thursday, September 9th, that he is signing an executive order requiring all Federal employees and contractors that have Federal contracts to be fully vaccinated within 75 days. He pushed that even further to all employers with over 100 employees now have to be fully vaccinated as well or have their unvaccinated employees tested weekly.
The Biden Admin knew that Congress would never be pass such an over reach. They knew that the only way to do this was to do it via Executive order. That pushes Biden’s already enormous EO number up to a total of 56 in less than a year.
This is clear overreach by the office of the President. And the states are fighting back.
Who has spoken against it already?
As of this moment late Thursday night, many companies and more importantly Governors of states and State Attorney Generals have spoken out against this over reaching executive order.
- Texas, Greg Abbott.
- Against this executive order. Already issued an Executive Order of his own protecting Texan’s right to choose. He is putting his power to fight this EO by Biden. –Twitter
- Florida, DeSantis:
- Against the executive order. Responded “We Will Fight.”
- Georgia, Gov. Kemp:
- States he will “…pursue every legal option available to the state of Georgia to stop this blatantly unlawful overreach by the Biden administration.”-Twitter
- Montana, Gov Greg Gianforte:
- “President Biden’s vaccination mandate is unlawful and un-American. We are committed to protecting Montanans’ freedoms and liberties against this gross federal overreach.”-Twitter
- Nebraska, Gov Ricketts:
- “Nebraska will stand up to President Biden’s overreach, and we will be working with the Attorney General to explore all our options.”-Twitter
- South Dakota, Gov. Noem:
- Oklahoma, Gov Stitt
- “My administration will continue to defend Oklahoma values and fight back against the Biden administration’s federal overreach.”- Twitter
- Wyoming, Gov Gordon
- “I have asked the Attorney General to stand prepared to take all actions to oppose this administration’s unconstitutional overreach of executive power. It has no place in America. Not now, and not ever.”-Twitter
- Mississippi, Gov Reeves
- “The President has no authority to require that Americans inject themselves because of their employment at a private business. The vaccine itself is life-saving, but this unconstitutional move is terrifying. This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.” – Twitter
- Missouri, Gov Parson
- “The Biden Administration’s recent announcement seeking to dictate personal freedom and private business decisions is an insult to our American principles of individual liberty and free enterprise. This heavy-handed action by the federal government is unwelcome in our state and has potentially dangerous consequences for working families. Vaccination protects us from serious illness, but the decision to get vaccinated is a private health care decision that should remain as such. My administration will always fight back against federal power grabs and government overreach that threatens to limit our freedoms.” –Twitter
- Arizona, Gov Ducey
- “This is exactly the kind of big government overreach we have tried so hard to prevent in Arizona — now the Biden-Harris administration is hammering down on private businesses and individual freedoms in an unprecedented and dangerous way. This will never stand up in court. This dictatorial approach is wrong, un-American and will do far more harm than good. How many workers will be displaced? How many kids kept out of classrooms? How many businesses fined? The vaccine is and should be a choice. We must and will push back.” – Twitter
- Iowa, Gov Reynolds
- “President Biden is taking dangerous and unprecedented steps to insert the federal government even further into our lives while dismissing the ability of Iowans and Americans to make healthcare decisions for themselves. Biden’s plan will only worsen our workforce shortage and further limit our economic recovery. As I’ve said all along, I believe and trust in Iowans to make the best health decisions for themselves and their families. It’s time for President Biden to do the same. Enough is enough.” – Twitter
- Alaska, Gov Dunleavy
- “This is ridiculous and unenforceable. If there was ever a case for the 25th Amendment…”- Twitter
- Alabama, Gov Ivey
- Tennessee, Gov Lee
- “The Constitution won’t allow this power grab, and in the meantime, I will stand up for all Tennesseans.”-Twitter
- North Dakota, Gov Burgum
- “President Biden’s misguided plan steers our country down a dangerous path away from states’ rights and the freedom of private businesses to make their own decisions on vaccinations. We stand opposed to this blatant federal overreach.”-Twitter
- Idaho, Gov Little
- “Today’s actions from President Biden amount to government overreach. Government should stay out of decisions involving employers and their employees as much as possible. I’ve advocated for and championed fewer government regulations and mandates on business.” – Twitter
- Arkansas, Gov Hutchinson
- “In response to President Biden’s Covid-19 action plan:” –Twitter
- West Virginia, AG Morrisey
- Utah, AG Reyes
- “From Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes:” –Twitter
