Small and medium-sized businesses received devastating news last week as President Joe Biden announced that employers with 100 or more employees will be required to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for their workforce. For employees who refuse, they’ll be required to submit to COVID-19 tests on a weekly basis.
Biden’s mandate is ludicrous, at best, and clearly a broken promise, as it wasn’t long ago that he vowed he would never issue any kind of vaccine mandates. According to The Daily Wire, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced that the RNC will take immediate legal action against the Biden administration to stop such nonsense.
McDaniel announced the lawsuit as she, and many others, believe that such requirements will undoubtedly cripple small businesses across the country that can’t afford to accommodate such rules.
“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,” the RNC chairwoman said in a statement.
She reminded Americans that Biden once promised to never impose COVID-19 vaccination mandates. “He lied,” McDaniel added.
The president attempted to sell the mandate to the public by wrapping it in a message of “safety,” while also expressing frustration that the vaccination rate in America isn’t quite what his administration would like to have seen by now.
Biden directly targeted the tens of millions of Americans who have yet to receive the vaccination, saying, “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us.”
Unfortunately, if the Biden administration gets its way, businesses that fall into the category of 100 employees or more who do not follow the new mandates can face staggering, potentially business-ending fines of up to $14,000 “per violation.”
It’s crucial that the RNC and every other organization with the means to take the matter to the top immediately do so, as this Naziesque, “show me your papers or suffer the consequences” new rule will likely cripple the U.S. economy and further take this great nation into dark territory.
