(AmericanProsperity.com) – President Joe Biden fell short of his goal of having 70% of Americans at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19 by July 4. Feeling the pressure to end the pandemic, the president is now choosing to strong arm federal government employees into getting the vaccine. He hopes this aggressive move will inspire private employers to follow suit with similar mandates.
President Biden Explains COVID Vaccine Requirements for Federal Employees
While the government cannot hold someone down and force a COVID-19 vaccine upon them, they can surely make it as difficult as possible to live without one. On Thursday, July 29, President Biden announced that federal government workers will have to disclose their coronavirus vaccine history and submit to testing, masking, and social distancing if they’re not vaccinated.
This announcement comes as approximately 69.3% of Americans have received at least one jab, and Biden hopes this will push the number to the 70% threshold. Federal workers are found heavily in Virginia and Maryland. They’re also dispersed throughout the entire nation as civil servants, military personnel, and postal service workers.
In addition, Biden asked state and local governments to consider using money left over from the American Rescue Plan to incentivize citizens to get vaccinated.
When Will Enough Be Enough for Biden and His Administration?
In May, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxed recommendations for fully vaccinated Americans, most citizens were grateful to see the government letting go of some of the overly restrictive rules it has been imposing on its people. Yet, on Tuesday, July 27, the CDC reversed their guidelines, now telling fully vaccinated Americans to mask up once again in indoor settings with high transmission rates.
With this back and forth from the CDC, it’s unclear how their rules are based on consistent science and data. Similarly, the Biden administration is now strong-arming millions of workers into getting a vaccine that has only been authorized for emergency use.
It seems the government is using the pandemic as an excuse to minimize personal liberties and medical freedom while forcing Americans to comply with its rules.
Liberals Continually Insult the Unvaccinated
On Tuesday, July 27, President Biden said Americans who are not vaccinated are “not nearly as smart” as he thought. Similarly, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) a “moron” for questioning the alleged science behind mask mandates this week.
In another instance, sports analyst Charles Barkley called people who chose not to be vaccinated against COVID-19 “a–holes.” If Democrats truly want to convince more Americans to get the jab, perhaps they should take a moment to understand their legitimate concerns over the non-FDA-approved inoculation instead of constantly insulting their personal intelligence and choice.
