Breaking: Senate Rebukes Biden Vaccine Mandate on Private Employers

senate

Washington, DC – Yesterday, with a vote of 52-48, the Senate officially voted to nix President Biden’s employer vaccine mandate.

AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom said: “Yesterday’s vote is a victory for small businesses and their workers across the country. The Senate deserves credit for forcing action on this issue and achieving a bipartisan vote in favor of striking down the mandate. Though the courts are likely to have the last word, this action shows voters that policy makers are prioritizing small businesses as the country seeks to recover economically from the pandemic.”

Two Democrats – Senators Manchin (D-WV) and Tester (D-MT) – joined all 50 Republicans in a rebuke of the OSHA policy. “It is not the place of the federal government to tell private business owners how to protect their employees from COVID-19 and operate their businesses” Senator Manchin told the press after his vote in favor of overturning the mandate. The bill overturning the mandate now heads to the House, where it faces an uphill push, and President Biden has promised to veto the bill should it reach his desk. The mandate is currently stayed in court and ultimately unlikely to become law.

Senator Dan Sullivan, upon sponsoring the bill, said: “This rule is unconstitutional overreach by the President of the United States, pure and simple. Individual freedoms and the rule of law are too often an afterthought with this administration, while broken promises continue piling up. We all want to put this pandemic behind us, but the decision to vaccinate is an individual choice, and should not be mandated by the federal government. The federal government does not have the constitutional or statutory authority to take this action, and to make this clear we will be exercising our Congressional authority to overturn this rule with a Congressional Review Act Resolution.”

It, like many things the inept Congress are not doing is really being overlooked as IMO, they were not elected to do this, they were elected to represent and manage federal level government, mainly spending and keeping military strong, other than that, no one should give a rats arse what any congressman thinks about issues other than overspending and military. hold them accountable when voting…

I am surprised that the senate had the guts to overturn this. But what about all the votes FOR the bill? We have way too many communists in our ranks that want to do away with America and side with tyranny. I just hope the parents of the children that will be “required” to take the stab stand up and say: not to my kid. All the weak minded socialist governors that sponsor this garbage need to take a double jab of the miracle elixir. But, show me the science and maybe I might change my mind, unless Dr. Falsey says his science is correct and then I won’t have to change my mind.

You are right. The Democratic Party is the communist party. They love tyranny. They love to tout science but, the science is still in its infancy. I took the vaccine because I am an old man with medical comorbidities. However, I made a free choice and everyone should have the free choice to accept or decline this vaccine. The Democrats believe they have the authority to tell us what to do and the sad thing is that so many support them.

All of this is by design and intentional, none by incompetence. They only make it appear that way so that people will just think it’s all by ineptitude and by accident. Biden personally? Yes, he is incompetent and senile, but that is why he was chosen to be the face, so people could blame him and not the eviI puppet masters behind the scenes, Iike Jarrett and 0bama. This is ALL planned.

Too many Americans are so spoiled that they don’t really care who is in office. If they ever wake up and see through the fog and see their freedom and livelihood gone, maybe they will understand. But…if they are still buying into all the lies, probably not.

Many just don’t look past their noses! Had to explain to my grandson why free college is not a good thing. He never had given a thought to who was going to pay for it – him for the rest of his life after graduation! He changed his mind about free stuff after that. He hadn’t gone far enough in his thinking about it – just saw the carrot.

O’Biden needs to go back to his basement in Delaware and just stay there. When he is out and about making a fool of himself, he just ignites another crisis. His mandates on the vaccinations are unconstitutional. He can not figure out how to handle the continuing boarder crisis. He lies daily about inflation rates, and his mental acuity is failing miserably right in front of our eyes. Most Americans will welcome the results of next year’s elections if the left wing thefts of the votes don’t happen again.

David my friend, as with the 2020 election, the libby left is setting up the circumstances now to interfere with the next round of voting. ie, create drama and crisis to be able to insist on more “mail in balloting”, overrun the polls with questionable, at best, “citizens” from down south. etc.
Never underestimate the lengths the leftist will go to in their quest for power.
Have a wonderful day.

Have to agree with D. Sam.
The Praetorian Guard Leftwing Media of the American Marxist (Democrat) Party refuses to mention any of the cheating or fraud that went on in 2016, 2018 or 2020 because they certainly intend on being in on utilizing it once again many times over.

The border “crisis” is JUST what they WANT and the lies WORK!!They give the Demorats time to work their “magic”!None of this was hidden BEFORE the election. Anyone paying attention knew that his mental usage was failing and that the OPEN border stand along with the “GREEN” program would kill energy.Destroying the current system is the plan in order to force the population to live on LESS and be happy with almost NOTHING! WHY are Americans in mass so CLUELESS?????WE voted for this.WHY?? The Biden people will be LOOKING to take EVERYONE’S $$$$ to PAY for all this and once they take our $$$ for the free stuff.. We will be told to be happy with nothing!! WAKE UP AMERICA!!

Looks great on the surface! Nice rhetoric. Nice thought. Nice action. Don’t mean a thing. It now goes to the House. Will Nazi Pelosi even bring it up for a vote? If she does and this bill eventually lands on Buck Fiden’s desk, he just might veto it don’t you think? Probably not enough votes to override the veto either. Good try!

Lets finish off what’s left of the small businesses in America. The life blood of the economy. We incentivized every one to stay home for over a year. Small business owners lost a major portion of their workforce and some more of them never came back. Some people in their late 50s and early 60s decided to hang it up, they’re all done dealing with the lunacy. But that’s exactly what this administration wants. let the illegals come in one by one at the tune of over 1 million, but don’t ask them what their Covid status is. That would be mean and racist. This administration needs to be taken out back and blindfolded. Absolute criminals. And the complicit Congress and the Senators need to go with them. What’s going on in America today is an absolute travesty. God help us.

For those who do not realize it, what is happening now is the culmination of decades of planning and hard work by the Left. Their goal is, and has always been, the destruction of this nation and the downfall of Western Civilization, to be replaced by a worldwide, Left-wing, totalitarian dictatorship. And it is getting close…

Vaccine mandate on small businesses, the lifeblood of the American economy. We can’t get any help, because of all the taxpayer money they give away free. A lot of people in their late 50s and early 60s decided to hang it up. they are done dealing with this nonsense. But we let every Tom Dick and Harry across the border and don’t even ask them about their Covid status. I think mr biden should be brought up on charges.
